ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Interior and Legal Affairs Attaullah Tarar said on Wednesday that incumbent government did not believe in political revenge and victimization but those threatening the officials of constitutional bodies would have to face legal action.

“Islamabad police registered the FIR against Fawad Chaudhry following the application of secretary election commission,” Tarar said while addressing a press conference along with PML-N leader Abid Sher Ali.

The SAPM said that PTI leader used objectionable language and even threatened the head of ECP, its members, officials and even their families in his interaction with media at Lahore.

“ECP is a constitutional body and it is sheer violation as per Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) to threaten such bodies or their officials,” Tarar said and added that PTI during its tenure had appointed the chief election commissioner after consultation process and Fawad alos participated in the process.

He said there could not be dual standard in provision of justice and legal action should be taken without any discrimination. “The judiciary will have to review as how one can be exempted after threatening the officials of constitutional bodies.”

During the press conference, two video clips were also screened in which Fawad was threatening ECP officials and their families of dire consequences over appointment of Caretaker Chief Minister in Punjab.

The SAPM said that PTI had no political struggle and it came into power through maneuvering against the wishes of public.

“FIR against Fawad Chaudhry invoked different sections including 124-A (sedition) of the Pakistan Penal Code and he will be produced in court in Islamabad for action as per law,” Tarar added.

Speaking on the occasion PML-N’s senior leader Abid Sher Ali accused PTI chief Imran Khan of destroying the economy and pushing the country to the brink of default. He said that Imran Khan was the one who promoted the culture of abusing opponents.

“Imran’s government victimized PML-N leadership by framing fake cases against them,” he said.

He said Imran Khan and his coalition partners themselves dissolved the provincial assemblies of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
