Court: (Judiciary has no political agenda: CJP)

ISLAMABAD: The Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday said that the judiciary had no set political agenda.

“We have no political agenda, he said while hearing a suo motu case for an increase in the prices of medicines. “I do not even feel like dealing with political cases,” he said, who has faced criticism from the ruling party, Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) for using “unbecoming language” in his rulings.

He said that if there were any doubts about his intentions, the judiciary could be tested now. “The time has arrived to show that something is being done,” he said. “I only want people to be given their rights.”

Last week, the chief justice had provided a justification for his earlier remarks of being a fighter who would continue to fight.
