Bilawal said their simple demand was that a full court should sit and hear their case.

"Three persons cannot decide the fate of 220 million people, said Bilawal while expressing distrust over SC three member bench led by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial.

"We will accept whatever decision a full court delivers," said Bilawal, adding that they would not make any objection.

Fazl said he strongly endorsed the statements of Maryam Nawaz, saying that she expressed their concerns in details and with examples.

Khalid Magsi and other PDM leaders also spoke on the occasion and they all unanimously asked the top court for formation of full court. Khalid Magsi said that there was nothing bad if full court was formed to hear the case.
