LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Monday moved the Lahore High Court (LHC) for the disqualification of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.
PTI’s lawyer Babar Awan named Shahbaz Sharif and the Election Commission of Pakistan as respondents in the case over allegations of a conflict of interest.
In the petition, PTI has alleged that Shahbaz Sharif remained involved in his private business despite holding a public office which leads to the violation of his oath he took when he assumed the office of Punjab chief minister.
It also accused the Punjab chief minister of misusing his authority to protect his sugar mills alleging that the mill was established without the approval of the Environment Impact Assessment and is therefore illegal.
Lahore High Court’s Justice Shahid Karim will begin hearing the case tomorrow.
