Nisar bewails over SC judges’ remarks against opposition


Opposition leader in the National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, on Thursday, expressed grave concern over the remarks of some Supreme Court judges regarding opposition during the hearing of contempt law.
In a statement issued from the Parliament House, he said that how come a party (PML-N), which played pivotal role in restoration of judiciary and supremacy of law, could be blamed.
He said the PML-N members staged walkouts, made speeches and protested against the contempt of law, while the PML-N tried its best to resist against the contempt law at all political, legal and parliamentary levels.
Moreover, he said that the learned judges should point out where the opposition was wrong and what SC was expecting from the Opposition.
He said that in the 342 parliamentarians, 90 belong to the opposition whereas 200 are from the ruling party PPP. The ruling party can easily pass bill in the assembly and in this situation Opposition walks out of the session to record its protest, he added.
Earlier on Wednesday, Supreme Court observed that the opposition should have resisted the passage of the law in the parliament instead of walkout of the house.
“The opposition should have stayed in the parliament to resist the ruling party’s move”, said Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, during the course of hearing of Contempt of Court Act 2012.
