Sindh High Court rejected an application of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PIT) local leader Faisal Vawda.
In the plea, Vawda pleased the court to stop Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar’s swearing in and declare him ineligible. Hwoever, SHC rejected on the grounds that none can be barred from contesting election mere basis of charges.
In response to a question, Vawda had said that the real enjoyment one derived from a match, was from the last two balls of the last over. He had also said that MQM leader Farooq Sattar was complicit with the federal government in making a fool out of the people.
“It’s misfortune that even a president and prime minister comes from jail to rule this country, and now the mayor is from jail who is facing many charges,” he said.
“All this is aimed at diverting focus from investigation of Panama Leaks but I will not back down and pursue my efforts aggressively for accountability and elimination of corruption,” he affirmed.
“I’m playing my part and will go to any extent,” he said, and criticized the government for nexus with MQM.
“Where is the government? It’s missing. The rulers should stop those who are involved in treason and attempting to break Pakistan.
About recent firing on his vehicle, the PTI leader said he has asked police to provide CCTV video of the crime scene, saying that he will get FIR lodged soon
