The Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Wednesday came down hard on the government for targeting judiciary, saying it was pushing the parliament and judiciary towards confrontation. In a series of tweets, the former interior minister said it was not new that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had attacked the judiciary. He said the government was making futile attempts to prevent elections by tabling a bill regarding curtailing powers of the chief justice of Pakistan. He said all institutions of the country, including the prime minister, were meant to obey the orders of the Supreme Court, adding that those defying the court orders would face treason charges. Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said the government lacked intention to hold elections instead of funds and security, adding that the government was not in a position to face the public. He said as per the constitution elections must be held within 90 days.
