Speaking in the National Assembly, the minister agreed with Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah’s remarks on Monday that mistakes have been made.
Listing those ‘mistakes’, Aurangzeb said politicians were booked for stealing cattle, sweets were distributed after Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’s hanging and oaths were taken under military dictators. “Should we not learn from these mistakes and move on,” she asked.
The minister said they respect the courts as guardians of the Constitution.
“Sending a prime minister packing and referring to him as ‘Godfather’ and ‘Sicilian Mafia’ is a rejection of the people’s opinion,” Aurangzeb asserted.
She added that criticising the judgment [of Nawaz’s disqualification] is her right, as it is Nawaz’s.
