Democracy won due to SC verdict about COAS, says PM Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that democracy has won due to the Supreme Court verdict about the Army Chief.
Addressing a consultative meeting of the party spokespersons on Friday, he said that court had admitted the power of the parliament and the federation. “Those who expected the clash of institutions were disappointed by the court verdict,” he said.
The prime minister said that mafia protecting their money also would have to face a defeat in future. “The Supreme Court verdict is the success of the government’s legal team,” he said.
