Institutions are vital but they should respect political leadership: Fawad

PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry has said that institutions are vital for running the affairs of the country “but they should also respect the political leadership of the country”.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Sunday, Fawad emphasised the need for cordial ties with the institutions, saying his party wanted to be on the “same page” with them. But ‘unelected institutions’ do not represent the people of the country and maintaining institutional balance is the need of the hour, he added.

Fawad said decisions should be made by the masses and added that decisions taken ‘behind closed doors’ did not have any importance.

Speaking about the Ramzan Sugar Mills reference, the PTI leader said Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had not been indicted in the case. “When we speak about this [delay], it is considered as contempt,” he added.

Fawad said PM Shehbaz was going to be indicted in the money laundering case on the day of his oath-taking ceremony but “unfortunately it was put off”.

The PTI leader said former prime minister Imran Khan held the “biggest rally” in the history of Gujranwala last night and the “entire country” came out to express solidarity with him in different cities across the country.

تاریخ میں ایسی مثال نہیں ملتی کہ ایک لیڈر ایک جگہ تقریر کرے اور ملک بھر میں اسکرینز لگا کر لاکھوں لوگ جلسہ میں شریک ہوں، پی ٹی آئی انتخابات میں لینڈ سلائیڈ وکٹری حاصل کرے گی اور یہی وجہ ہے کہ قوم نے دیکھا کہ کیسے یہ انتخابات سے بھاگے۔ @fawadchaudhry

“Millions of people turned up to listen to Imran Khan as his speech was shown on big screens in difference cities,” he added.

On the postponement of by-elections, Fawad said incumbent rulers were running away from the polls and alleged that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) made the decision to postpone by-polls “behind closed doors”.

“Election commission has wasted billions of rupees of the nation. Irresponsible people have been imposed on us and there is an administrative crisis within the ECP as they declared four million voters dead,” he remarked.

الیکشن کمیشن متعصب ہونے کیساتھ ایک انتظامی بحران اور نالائقی کا بھی شکار ہے، چاہے وہ حلقہ بندیاں ہوں یا 40 لاکھ ووٹرز کا مردہ قرار دیا جانا یا اب قوم کا اربوں روپیہ خرچ کرکے بند کمروں کے فیصلوں پر عملدرآمد کرتے ہوئے انتخابات ملتوی کر دینا۔ @fawadchaudhry

Reiterating his party’s allegations, the former information minister said that the PTI-led government was toppled through a ‘foreign conspiracy’ due to which he said the economy of the country has been destroyed.
