Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s spokesman Muhammad Zubair has said that those who registered the case against the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz PML-N leaders are the workers of the ruling party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Addressing media in Lahore, Muhammad Zubair said the government representatives accuse the PML-N of speaking against the institutions but in fact, they are the ones who are maligning the image of these institutions.
“Imran Khan thought he could scare us by registering the case but he is wrong. We will continue to fight for our rights.” He added that no one from the government is ready to take ownership of the treason case against party founder Nawaz Sharif and others.
Let it be known that this week, a case was registered against PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and other party leaders at the Shahdara police station in Lahore for ‘conspiring’ against the country and state institutions.
The case was registered under Section 10 (cyberterrorism) of the Pakistan Electronic Crimes Act (2016), and sections 120-A (definition of criminal conspiracy), 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 121-A (conspiracy to wage war against Pakistan), 123-A (condemning the creation of the country and advocating the abolishment of its sovereignty), 124-A (sedition) and 153-A (promoting enmity between different groups) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
