ISLAMABAD: Speaker Assembly Asad Qaiser became a target of harsh criticism by the opposition parties, according to whom, the speaker should face trial under the Constitution’s Article 6. The opposition parties maintain that Qaiser has not convened a session of the National Assembly within the time frame he was supposed to do.
Prime Minister Imran Khan was also criticised by the opposition for allegedly using the religion card, hoping that it would save his government. The opposition parties also accused the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf of running a malicious campaign against the Pakistan Army for its neutral stance on the no-confidence motion.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, the Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto said that he expected of the Supreme Court to play its part in upholding the Constitution and protecting the democracy and the rights of the parliamentarians.
Senior leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) also accused the prime minister of using ‘Islam’ to save his country and seconded the PPP demands of trying Qaiser under Article 6 of the Constitution.
