Talking to media in London, the Prime Minister said the coalition government is trying its best to tackle the challenges and Pakistan would come out of the difficulties. He said justice should be seen to be done, adding betterment of people and country meant that the system should be run according to the constitution.
“Everyone will have to play his role for the supremacy of the constitution. Everybody has to respect law and constitution.”
The Pakistan Prime Minister said Parliament’s right to legislate was laid down in the constitution and this right could not be taken away, adding at present Parliament was playing its effective role.
He said the previous government victimized the opposition and put its leaders in jail in fabricated cases and they had no place to seek justice Members of opposition were oppressed, were not even spared in sickness and women were arrested on Eid days and nobody cared, he recalled.
PM Shehbaz Sharif said now others were getting speedy bails in dozens of cases at once and it all showed the double standards which nobody liked. Double standards were not healthy and beneficial for any society, he added.
