ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior MInister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Saturday ruled out any chance of confrontation between the government and the judiciary.
Certain elements, he said, wanted to give an impression that confrontation and chaos existed among state institutions for their vested political interests.
They were the so-called defenders of the judiciary, who themselveswere involved in ridiculing the institutions when they were in power, he said in a statement here.
“Interpreting the difference of opinion as a confrontation reflects the mindset of the people, who want chaos instead of development and stability in the country,” the minister said and added the same people pursued negative tactics to stop judges from giving verdicts while PCO judges were also appointed to high offices in their tenure.
Chaudhry Nisar said, “The self-proclaimed guardians of judiciary have forgotten that how the state institutions were humiliated in their tenure,” he said without naming anyone.
The minister said the government’s response to the remarks of an honourable judge should not be linked with confrontation and added that some elements were habitual of creating misunderstanding among institutions.
“Unfortunately some elements have made a practice of creating misunderstanding between the government and institutions,” he said.
He said today those elements were trying to exaggerate the issue to which the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leadership promptly showed reaction and took timely disciplinary action against the party worker.
The minister said, “It is quite surprising that todayleaders of a particular party are raising hue and cry whose spokesman allegedly held national institutions responsible for rigging in the general election 2013.
“No action was taken against that person and he was still working as spokesman of that party”, he added.
