Sargodha (Staff Report): Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that he visited Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar as a ‘faryadi’ of the nation.
Addressing a public gathering in Sargodha, Abbasi said that no any personal issue was discussed during the meeting with top court judge, adding that the chief justice himself was a witness of it.
On Thursday, the chief justice while hearing a case remarked that his job was to listen to the pleas of every ‘faryadi’ (complainant).
“The prime minister came with a plea, and it is my duty to hear everyone’s requests. I didn’t go to the PM house or the Secretariat. They came to visit me,” Justice Nisar was quoted as saying.
The prime minister, during his address, reiterated that the Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani had been elected through bought votes.
"I am saying this again today that money was used to get the Senate chairman elected," Abbasi said. "He [Sanjrani] cannot represent Pakistan."
He challenged political rivals PTI Chief Imran Khan and PPP-Co Chairman Asif Ali Zardari to say it on the record that MPAs were not bought.
"I challenge Imran and Zardari to appear on the television and say that MPAs and votes were not bought," he said.
The prime minister said that he was proud that his party had not spent a single penny to buy votes.
