SARGODHA – Mian Javed Latif, a key leader in the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), spoke at a news conference on Tuesday about the incoming chief judge, judge Qazi Faez Isa, and urged for upholding the constitution and giving the PML-N justice.
Mr. Latif bemoaned the treatment of former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was labelled a hijacker despite his great services to Pakistan, including his approval of nuclear testing that turned the nation into a nuclear power. Mr. Latif made this statement during the conference.
In 2014, Mr. Latif said that Imran Khan attacked Pakistan Television (PTV), Parliament, and the Prime Minister’s House, and he accused the courts of doing nothing about it. Mr. Latif criticised the judiciary for what he viewed as a lack of action against Imran Khan.
Javed Latif continued by asserting that PTI had given the perpetrators of the incident on May 9 training for a year before to the assault on military sites and the burning. He said there was a plot to sabotage the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and threatened to expose individuals behind what he called a worldwide anti-Pakistan movement in the coming days.
He emphasised the necessity for the incoming chief justice to uphold the constitution and treat his party fairly while requesting justice for the PML-N.
He advocated for collaborative leadership, saying that all chiefs have to cooperate to steer the nation towards growth.
A PML-N senior further said that PTI leaders wrote to the IMF opposing a debt agreement, worsening Pakistan’s economic woes. He described Imran Khan and his group as puppets of foreign forces.
In a key declaration, Mr. Latif said that the PML-N will run for office individually rather than as a member of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).
Last but not least, Mr. Latif emphasised the value of merit-based hiring for the development of the nation and praised the selection of the present army commander as an example of a merit-based choice.
