PTI attempted to scandalise NA speaker’s ruling: Taj

Pakistan Peoples’ Party Sindh General Secretary Taj Haider has called the petition filed by Pakistan Tehrik Insaf (PTI) against ruling of Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida Mirza a cheap attempt to scandalize the issue and trying to mislead and politicize the Supreme Court.
In a statement to press, Taj Haider said PTI had built its case on the false and malicious statement contained in Para IV (g) of their petition that Dr. Fehmida Mirza was “not directly elected and came to the House on special quota”.
“The facts are that Dr. Fehmida Mirza had won the general elections on NA-225 Badin II by securing 88,983 votes and had defeated her closest opponents Bibi Yasmeen Shah by an overwhelming margin of 64,495 votes. Her earlier tenures as a member of the National Assembly were also from this general seat and not on any special quota,” he added.
“This huge victory was in spite of the heavy rigging against her and her husband Dr Zulfiqar Mirza, contesting on provincial assembly seat PS-57-III Badin, he said, adding that it so happened that Bibi Yasmeen Shah’s husband Papoo Shah was opposing Dr Zulfikar Mirza on PS-57-III, and a petition was given to the Election Commission stating that according to the papers and certificates submitted by Papoo Shah to the ECP, he had passed his B.B.A examination two years before passing his matriculation examination. The level of injustice and rigging can be imagined by the fact that the ECP chose to ignore this glaring fact contained in their own records and allowed Papoo Shah to contest,” he said.
Taj Haider said that while the PTI leadership is legendary for its ignorance of well known facts, learned Hamid Khan a senior advocate of Supreme Court is not expected not to know this fact about the speaker or not to check this fact while submitting a petition before the apex court. “The only motive behind his “ignorance” is to defame the speaker, confuse the public mind and to drag judiciary in politics. PTI follows the political philosophy of trying to come in power on the shoulders of the establishment. Unfortunately, for them the time for this brand of politics is long over,” Haider maintained.
