Former Chief Justice Saqib Nisar has presumably said that he will be missed when he will be gone but his stated reason for why he will be missed remains unknown as this reporter did not listen to his complete statement.
“You all will miss me when yo…,” the former chief justice said right before the cameras immediately moved away in an attempt to gather footage of the incumbent chief justice at the Supreme Court.
Nisar was seen in the background of the cavalcade of Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, muttering some words to the five individuals surrounding him, four of whom were his grandchildren.
Some within the nation’s television newsrooms do have bits and pieces of the former CJP’s statements after shift-in-charges, as a training exercise, assigned trainee video editors to cut out the statements which he was shouting over a press conference of senior lawyer Khwaja Harris.
“Yes, it was getting so hard to concentrate on what Khwaja Harris was saying,” said Shaukat Khattak, a senior court correspondent. “I am going to appeal to the SC Registrar to take better care of the security of the place so that just anyone isn’t able to walk on to the premises.”
