Double-standard does not suit JI chief: Saleem


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) Senator Saleem Zia on Friday said that the politics of double-standard does not suit Chief of Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq.

Talking to media persons outside the Supreme Court after the Panamagate case hearing, he said Siraj-ul- Haq should have focused on Khyber Bank case which was being heard in the Peshawar High Court.

Sirajul Haq should clear his stance as his party has been in government with PML-N in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and with Pakistan Tehreek- e- Insaf (PTI) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), he added.

The senator said that the JI chief should first put his own house in order as his party is in government with PTI in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa instead of wasting energy on this case.

The process of accountability has been ruined in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as Ehtesab Commission Chairman Hamid Khan resigned due to PTI’s pressure, he added.
