The high court sought from the petitioner, Advocate Rana Shahid, past verdicts as to how this contempt of court petition could be heard.
The petitioner sought time to present the previous verdicts, which the LHC granted, and set March 6 for the next hearing.
The LHC clubbed numerous petitions against Maryam’s speech for hearing on March 6.
At the outset of the proceedings, the petitioner shed light on the contemptuous remarks made by Ms Nawaz during her speech.
