Today supreme court bench headed by CJ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has issued show cause notice for contempt of court to Prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani for not obaying the order of the court under NRO.

Addressing the meeting of coalition partners in the government at the Prime Minister House, the president said that they had faced the same situation in the past and they would manage to tackle the situation this time as well.

President Zardari thanked the coalition partners for expressing their confidence on the government.

He said that political situation would get better soon adding that the parliament is supreme and coalition partner's role is important.

Calling President Asif Ali Zardari the “biggest thief”, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Monday that the government was sabotaging the courts in order to hide its “thefts”.

Talking to the media at Sukkur airport, Imran Khan said the government came into power through NRO and tried to hide its theft of billions of rupees. “The Supreme Court has issued contempt of court notice to the prime minister, because he did not fulfill his responsibilities,” he said.

The PTI chief stated that only the constitution is supreme and not the parliament. “If the parliament starts providing justice, then the courts should be shut down… Parliament has its own responsibilities, the courts have their own,” he said.

Reiterating his party’s support for the judiciary, Imran Khan said that PTI is standing with the chief justice and the Supreme Court.

He said the prime minister was supporting an individual to hide his theft instead he should support judiciary in the best interest of the country. PTI chief asked PML-N to resign from the Punjab and National assemblies to show they are serious about democracy.

He said that the masses of the country had restored the independent Supreme Court but the prime minister had given statements that he was answerable to parliament not any individual.

Imran Khan also dispelled rumours about forming an alliance with former military ruler Pervez Musharraf’s party All Pakistan Muslim League (APML). “We are not ready for any alliances,” he stated.

The party chairman also said that the only way to bring the country out of the “quicksand” was by holding early elections.
