PML-N’s Lodhran victory a public response to false cases: Nawaz
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has said that the victory of ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in NA-154 Lodhran was a response of the public to the false cases against him and his family.
Talking to media after appearing before the accountability court, he said that there wouldn’t be need to file supplementary reference by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), if the allegations against him were based on truth.
The ex-PM termed the ongoing cases against him ‘victimization in the name of accountability’, adding that ‘they’ want Nawaz punished one way or the other.
I do not even know why I am being victimized, he added.
Responding to a question, Sharif said some elements wanted that he should be convicted one way or the other otherwise all their activity against him will go waste. “I know that revenge is being taken but I am not afraid. I will face the cases,” he added.
The former premier went on to say that no action was taken against those who arrested the judges twice and violated the constitution and then ran away abroad.
“I made Pakistan a nuclear power, strengthened the economy, ended loadshedding and eradicated terrorism but was being treated as a convict,” he said adding that those who served the people were being targeted.
The PML-N chief said that political forces in the country should implement the Charter of Democracy. He vowed to take the country in the right direction.
Maryam Nawaz Sharif said Nawaz Sharif will fulfill the promise of “restoration of justice” in the country.
PML-N MNA Captain (R) Safdar said the court of the people gave its decision in Lodhran in favor of Nawaz Sharif.
The people of Lodhran gave the verdict in the petition filed by Nawaz Sharif in the court of the public, he added.
