Ruling coalition wants CJP to step down over ‘Imran bias’

ISLAMABAD: Demanding the resignation of Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial for “giving undue facilitation” to PTI Chairman Imran Khan, the Pakistan Demo­cra­tic Movement (PDM) government on Monday warned the top judge of ‘dire consequences’ if Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif was disqualified “on the pretext of contempt of the court” for refusing to comply with the court ruling regarding Punjab elections on May 14.

The multi-party ruling alliance, which organised a sit-in outside the top court in Red Zone, lashed out at the judiciary, particularly CJP Bandial, during the gathering which lasted the entire day before being called off by PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

The sit-in coincided with the hearing on a petition submitted by the ECP asking the bench to revisit its decision regarding elections in Punjab.
