Nawaz Sharif Slams PTI Founder’s Hypocrisy

News Desk2 weeks ago

PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek members clashed with Constitution Avenue police on August 31, 2014, as they marched toward the Prime Minister’s house and the Parliament Building.

The remarks were delivered by the former prime minister in front of the PML-N’s Central Working Committee (CWC), which had earlier accepted Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s resignation as leader of the party and designated him as its interim leader.

Speaking to the attendees, Nawaz Sharif bemoaned the “injustices” that had been inflicted upon him during his previous term in office and called for the courts and others who had “damaged” Pakistan to be held accountable.

He pointed out that the first thing he did upon assuming power in 2013 was visit PTI founder Imran Khan in Banigala to agree on working together for the country’s sake.

The leader of the PML-N asserted that Imran Khan had vowed to cooperate and that he had demanded the construction of the Banigala road, which Nawaz said was completed in 15 days.

He alleged that Imran then “hatched a conspiracy” in London with Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, Tahir-ul-Qadri, and former DG ISI Lt Gen retired Zaheerul Islam. Following Imran’s homecoming, the nation saw protests.

Nawaz claimed to be perplexed by the occurrence and that he ought to have been notified and given the opportunity to discuss the issue or the PTI’s concerns. “I came to see you, and you betrayed me by saying you would help, and then you started protesting in D-Chowk?”

Nawaz Sharif added that although his cabinet colleagues had demanded harsh measures to quell the protests, he had forbidden them. Nawaz claimed that in spite of this, his administration was able to secure the historic China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The former prime minister demanded that the judges “who destroyed and ruined Pakistan” be held accountable, claiming that those who were instigating plots against him were “being exposed.” “A prime minister who represents 250 million people is disqualified for life by three people sitting down,” he remarked.

He went on to say that although judges could not remove presidents or prime ministers in any other nation, he was dismissed in this one over the “small matter of not taking salary from my son”.

“I have an audio recording of former Pakistani Chief Justice Saqib Nisar saying that Imran Khan must be brought in and Nawaz Sharif must be removed.”

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif resigned from his position as president of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Monday.

In light of Shehbaz’s resignation, the PML-N has decided to call a general council meeting in Lahore on May 28 to nominate a new president.

In a recent news conference, Rana Sanaullah stated that the PML-N Punjab branch has asked Nawaz Sharif to take up the party presidency once more, stressing the importance of his leadership to the party’s achievements.

Following his conviction in 2018, the former prime minister was barred from holding any public office.

In the Avenfield and Al-Azizia referrals, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) cleared him on November 29 and December 12, respectively, of last year. The former prime minister ran for office in the General Elections of 2024 and won from NA-130 Lahore after being found not guilty.
