PM displayed moral responsibility to present himself before SC: Saad

LAHORE: Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique says Prime Minster Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has presented himself before the Supreme Court despite his name was not mentioned in the Panama Papers.

Addressing a news conference in Lahore on Monday evening, he said PTI Chief Imran Khan is fighting the Panama battle to hide his failures.

He said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has defeated Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for several times in the previous elections and will win the upcoming general elections 2018 with two-thirds  majority.

The Minister said it is a wrong practice to targeting the Supreme Court and national security institutions in the country.

He made it clear that those who are involved in the contempt of court will be dealt with legally.

He urged the political workers to uphold the moral values.
