Bilawal Bhutto criticises judges for ‘playing politicians’

KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday criticised judges for “playing politicians” instead of doing their jobs.

In a tweet, he said that the judiciary needs reforms, giving an example of how the Law Reforms Commission headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar has never met since 2015 while under the rules the committee has to meet four times a year.

“While judges continue to play politician & do all jobs but theirs – justice suffers in Pakistan,” lamented the PPP chairman.

On Saturday, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar had said that the courts have seldom tried people for contempt [of the court] despite so much criticism against the judiciary.

The CJP had said that the current Supreme Court bench comprises people who are truly independent and hold up to the highest standards of integrity.

The CJP had also said that the country direly needed honest leadership, education and a strong judicial system to steer it away from the problems it was currently facing. He had also praised the apex court’s bench and said that all judges were worthy of their position and carried out their duties honestly.

    BB lacks the basics of politics therefore he won’t say this nonsense. Recently Diesal had a meeting with 10 %.This is an indicator of renewal of Muk Mukaa. Remember they both know where survival lies. Two crooks together are better than family. This statement by BB is in relation to that .
