Islamabad, March 26, 2023 (PPI-OT): Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif termed the contents of the letter written by President Dr Arif Alvi as one sided and press release of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. Responding to President’s letter, he said that it was a matter of record that previously, the president had acted in a similar patrician manner on several occasions in violation of his oath.

He said these occasions included letter for dissolution of the National Assembly on April 3, last year on the illegal instructions of the former prime minister Imran Khan which was declared as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court on 7th of April and upon his elections as the prime minister, the president failed to discharge his constitutional duty in terms of clause (5) of Article 91.

The Prime Minister said despite the foregoing and several other instances, where you actively worked towards undermining a constitutionally elected government. I have made all-out efforts to maintain good working relationship with you. However, the contents of your letter, its tone and language have compelled me to respond to it.
