Pakistan: Ministers warn Imran of reference under Article 6

Pakistan: Ministers warn Imran of reference under Article 6

Islamabad, July 4 (UNI) The top ministers of the PML-N-led coalition government and senior leaders took on former prime minister Imran Khan for criticising of the state institutions and warned they may take him to the Supreme Court of Pakistan through a reference under Article 6 of the Constitution, Dawn reported on Monday.
Minister for Railways and Aviation Khawaja Saad Rafique, flanked by MNA and former speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, spoke to the media in Lahore about the issue, while Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif spoke to party workers in Faisalabad and Narowal, respectively.
“On the one hand, he (Imran Khan) violates the Constitution and law and, on the other hand, abuses the judiciary and the establishment, especially its chief, over his ouster. Mentally, he is not a balanced personality and the country cannot be run as per his desires,” Saad Rafique said at a press conference at the railways’ headquarters on Sunday.
He termed the PTI chief as a selfish and untrustworthy man who used to run the country through ‘magic’, labeling his opponents as thieves and traitors and putting them behind the bars on cooked up cases.
Sardar Ayaz Sadiq said he along with other MNAs said that would request the NA speaker to forward a reference (as per resolution) to the government against Imran Khan under Article 6 for maligning the state institutions.

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan, said the IMF had ‘red-marked’ the country when Imran Khan was the prime minister for violating the agreement with the world donor.
Asif said Imran Khan was closing all avenues to return to power due to his bad attitude and conduct.
