NAB cases against me have no legs, says Nawaz
LONDON: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Saturday said that the cases against him in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) are weak, DawnNews reported.
Speaking to audience and a section of media during a ceremony here, Sharif also inquired as why his previous government was dissolved? “Whenever the country progresses, these mysterious miscreants appear from nowhere to break down the process and dissolve the courts,” he pondered.
Reminiscing over his previous tenures in the government, the PML-N chief claimed that the country was amongst the best. “We setup industries…eradicated poverty from the country,” said Sharif.
Commenting on Indo-Pak relations during his tenure, Sharif regretted that then Indian prime minister had visited Pakistan for reconciliation but the PML-N government was dissolved then.
He said that if the democracy was continued for 22 years, it would have made it up for the previous 40 years.
Commenting on recently legislated contempt of court act, the PML-N chief alleged the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government for legislating in a haste to protect “few people.”
“The PPP should not chalk out a law in a haste only to protect a handful of people,” said the party chief, adding it should sit across a table with opposition parties also before legislating new laws.
Critisising the role of coalition allies of the PPP, Sharif adviced them to part ways with the present regime over its dealings with the judiciary.
The PML-N chief further said that the government has not been able to overcome power crisis during past four years of its tenure.
He wondered why a nuclear power was unable to provide electricity to its people.
