News Desk July 28, 2017

Opposition parties have welcomed the much-awaited verdict on Panama Papers case, in which the Supreme Court disqualified Nawaz Sharif from holding public office.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) said they will offer prayer of thanks collectively following the apex court decision.

“Today Pakistan has gotten rid of a corrupt prime minister. Basis of a new Pakistan have been built today," said PTI leader Jehangir Tareen.

PTI leader Asad Umar said prayers will be organised to thank God over the much-awaited verdict.

Reacting to the verdict, Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid said it has been proved Nawaz is not sadiq and ameen, according to Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution.

While a session of Pakistan Peoples Party leaders is underway, PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira said “the credit does go to PTI and Imran Khan for taking this issue to court and fighting this long legal battle."
