CM Shehbaz disqualification case, LHC reserves the verdict
LAHORE (NTP)- The verdict regarding the admissibility of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran khan’s plea was reserved by the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday. The plea was to seek the disqualification of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
Babar Awan who is the counsel of Imran Khan claimed that Mr. Shehbaz Sharif who is the current Chief Minister of Punjab looked after his personal business affairs simultaneously holding public office.
Babar Awan asserted “Shehbaz Sharif gave gifts worth Rs6 billion to Nawaz Sharif but did not attach money trail. Shehbaz Sharif did not show assets worth $34 million and used public office to influence matters of family’s sugar mills. In the light of aforementioned facts, order of removal of Shehbaz Sharif should be issued”.
LHC Justice Shahid Karim reserved verdict on admissibility of plea after completion of Babar Awan’s arguments.
