LAHORE (Dunya News) – Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan opined Friday that it was within government s authority whether or not to accept the verdict of International Court of Justice (ICJ) regarding convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.
ICJ announced its verdict on Kulbhushan Jadhav case yesterday in which the death sentence was stayed until the final verdict. Leaders from the opposition criticised the government as ICJ ruled in the favour of India. Opposition Leader Khurshid Shah even accused the government of not fulfilling its duties pertaining to Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
While defending the federal government in media talk, Rana Sana slammed the opposition lawmakers saying the federal government has full right to accept or reject ICJ’s verdict.
Imran Khan s response to ICJ s verdict regarding Kulbhushan Jadhav case:
After the debacle in ICJ today, the nation demands Sharif family disclose all its financial interests/assets abroad esp with Jindal in India— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) May 18, 2017
Nation cannot afford to have its security jeopardised by the Sharifs financial interests abroad https://t.co/f64RreTGUW— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) May 18, 2017
He also lambasted PTI Chairman Imran Khan saying he cannot become the Prime Minister by practicing such ‘negative politics’.
Punjab Law Minister claimed the opposition legislators supported Indian propaganda against Pakistan.
“PML-N will sweep the 2018 elections,” he claimed.
