ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Friday that cases in the courts cannot be won on the basis of baseless allegations and arguments.

Talking to media persons after Panama case hearing she said that contrary to the claims of the opponents, it was a fact that there was no contradiction in the prime minister’s addresses to the nation and speeches.

She said that the counsels of the petitioners could not give any argument on the basis of which a third-time elected prime minister could be disqualified. Moreover, she said not a single proof was provided with the petitions, while the PML-N counsel not only submitted documents and evidences, but also gave solid arguments in the case.

The minister said that the media talks of the petitioners outside the court are contrary to the arguments given by their counsels in the court.

She said PTI leadership was habitual of levelling allegations on the container, so they feel that others are also using derogatory language, which was introduced by Imran Khan. She said that the arguments of Jamaat-e-Islami lawyer were in contrast with the contents of the petition field by Sirajul Haq. She said PML-N was a civilised party and like its leader Nawaz Sharif, never used derogatory language against anyone.
