ISLAMABAD – Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage, Marriyum Aurangzeb Thursday said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has set a precedent for all institutions of the country by appearing before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), probing assets of Sharif family, and following the Constitution.

“The appearance of the Prime Minister is an act of submitting to the Constitution and Law rendering him beyond reproach and setting a high standard to be followed and applicable to all institutions,” she told a private television channel.

“PM’s has etched a new era in Pakistan’s history demonstrating the strength of democracy and in doing so he has cleansed Pakistan of unconstitutional acts of the past. The Prime Minister and his family are acutely acquainted with extreme scrutiny having answered for and vindicated on frivolous and vexatious claims over the last 3 decades under, hitherto, hostile circumstances.”

Whilst commenting on Imran Khan’s video statement about PM’s appearance before JIT, the minister highlighted that Imran Khan continues his hypocrisy rendering him irrelevant and that he has lost his place in civilised public discourse.

The minister further stated that any and all institutions that reach beyond their constitutional limitations are acting against Pakistan’s interest.
