Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, slamming Nawaz Sharif for his alleged attempts to manipulate the judiciary to get a verdict in his favour in the Panama Papers case, said the ousted prime minister always “played with his own umpires” and wanted a judge like Justice Qayyum whom he could influence on writing a judgement.

Imran tweeted on Sunday that “[Nawaz Sharif’s] problem is he has always played with his own umpires and wanted a judge like Justice Qayyum whom he could influence on writing a judgement.”

“Hence [the Supreme Court’s] decision traumatised him and has led him to carry out a campaign attacking the country’s superior judiciary,” the PTI supremo added.

Imran, in an earlier tweet, said: “Now the motive behind Nawaz’s public meetings has become evident with his declaration that the SC will have to take back their decision on his disqualification.”

According to the PTI chief, “[Nawaz] is seeking to build public pressure, and, in the process, has let slip the fake sincerity in his desperate cry: Mujhe kyun nikala.”

The PML-N has been leading a campaign against Nawaz’s ouster from power, saying the masses have rejected the court’s decision.

It is important to mention that the top court dismissed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz in a landmark judgement in the aforementioned case on July 28 last year.
