Lahore : A man has filed an application in a Pakistani court against President Asif Ali Zardari for addressing a political gathering in Punjab province in alleged violation of a Supreme Court order.

Munir Ahmad filed the civil miscellaneous application in the Lahore High Court on Saturday in connection with his pending contempt of court petition against Zardari for holding the political office of co-chairman of the ruling Pakistan People’s Party and conducting political activities in the presidency. Ahmad contended that Zardari had violated a recent apex court order by addressing a political gathering at Mandi Bahauddin, 200 kilometres from Lahore, on Thursday in violation of a Supreme Court orders. In an order issued in response to former air force chief Asghar Khan’s petition against the rigging of the 1990 election at the behest of late President Ghulam Ishaq Khan, the apex court had said that the President was expected to be non-partisan and disengaged from all political affiliations.
