LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Friday will hear a petition seeking the disqualification of Prime Minister Imran Khan. Justice Shams Mehmood will hear the petition filed by Advocate AK Dogar. In his petition, Advocate Dogar accused Imran of inciting citizens into civil disobedience during former premier Nawaz Sharif’s term. Owing to this, the premier does not qualify to be a member of the Parliament, the petition stated.
“Imran had urged people to neither pay taxes nor send foreign remittances,” the petition added. Further, it said, “Imran along with his supporters stormed towards the Parliament House and smashed its gates.”
Urging that the premier be disqualified, the petition stated that he worked against Pakistan’s sovereignty and political system.
