Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday said that Prime Minister Imran Khan and all characters involved in the "conspiracy" against the nation are guilty of high treason and should be tried under Article 6 of the Constitution.
Nawaz's remarks came after President Arif Alvi approved the advice of Prime Minister Imran Khan to dissolve the National Assembly after a summary was sent by the premier in the wake of a no-trust move against him.
Sharif tweeted that “Imran Khan, who puts his ego before the country and the nation, and all conspiratorial characters involved in this conspiracy are guilty of high treason that attracts Article 6,”. He pledged that the “abuse of Pakistan and desecration of the Constitution will be taken into account”.
Nawaz, who is also the supreme leader of the Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz, said that Imran Khan and all characters involved in the "conspiracy" against the nation are guilty of high treason and should be tried under Article 6 of the Constitution.
He warned that anyone involved in any wrongdoing with the country and desecration of the Constitution will be taken to task.
Nawaz made these remarks after the dismissal of the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Khan by former National Assembly deputy speaker Qasim Suri and the subsequent dissolution of the assembly by President Arif Alvi.
Maryam Nawaz Sharif, the daughter of Nawaz Sharif and PML-N Vice President said in a tweet, “No one should be allowed to distort the Constitution of Pakistan to save his seat. If this crazy and fanatic person is not punished for this crime, the law of the jungle will prevail in this country after today!” she said in a Twitter post, referring to Prime Minister Khan.
“Obsessed with power, Imran Khan has targeted himself in a suicide attack today. Imran’s drama and story are over now, God willing,” she said in another tweet.
In an earlier tweet, she posted a group photo featuring Imran Khan, Shahbaz Gill, Fawad Chaudhry, Babar Awan and Faisal Javed Khan, and said: “Mark their faces. This is the group, the mafia that has attacked and abrogated the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. They all must be tried under Article 6.”
