LAHORE - PPP’s North Punjab President Imtiaz Safdar Warraich on Monday said his party would not accept any adverse court verdict against its second prime minister.

Talking to the media after chairing a party meeting here, the PPP leader said the party had been subjected to great injustices in the past and now it had lost the patience to bear any further shocks.

He was flanked by General Secretary Azizur Rehman Chan, Secretary Information Aamer Raja and Secretary Finance Aurangzeb Burki among others.

Warraich said the PPP was being victimised since long. He said it was clearly written in the Constitution that criminal proceedings could not be initiated in any court against the president of Pakistan. He was of the view that presenting the president before a foreign magistrate was tantamount to humiliating 200 million people of Pakistan. He urged the Supreme Court to strengthen the democratic institutions.

On local bodies’ elections, he said the PPP would hold first local bodies’ convention on September 30 in Lahore to put pressure on the Punjab government to conduct local elections.
