Taking a swing at politicians, Memuna said this:
Nasir ul Mulk is #CaretakerPM!
Strangely, Politicians are decrying Judges & yet crying for judges!
No wonder its Age of Judges!
Judges have proved themselves better than politicians, hence the trust.

Fearing another PTI dharna, are we?
J Nasir ul Mulk, appointed as CJP by the then PM Sharif, was also the acting Chief Elec Commissioner in 2013-14; was the PPP choice today, has the nod from PTI. Hopefully no more dhandli mantra in GE18 now.#CaretakerPM

WAJ doesn’t need anyone to take care of him since he’s a grown up now:
Mixed reviews about the new #CaretakerPM.
Some say he’s pro-Nawaz. Some say he’s a thorough professional.
I say I don’t need to be taken care of by any care taker, thank you very much. Frankly, this whole interim set up tradition is constitutionally archaic.
