LONDON:Former Prime Minister and leader of Pakistan Muslim League (N), Mian Nawaz Sharif has said that the fate of Pakistani can’t be decided through deals of a few individuals.“The nation will not allow anyone to hijack its future for personal motives,” he said while addressing a meeting of senior party leaders in the party’s international secretariat, here. According to a press statement of the PML-N leader, Ahsan Iqbal, Mian Nawaz Sharif said, “PML-N believes that only rule of law through restoration of undiluted democracy can bring stability and progress in Pakistan.”
“PML-N doesn’t seek any kind of indemnity therefore those people who want indemnity should only negotiate for themselves. We believe that there should be independent judiciary, transparent accountability, and fair process of law in the country so that all politically motivated cases can be disposed off on merit. There are no pending cases of corruption involving two PML-N governments and if false cases are fabricated against us then we shall defend the same in court of law instead of seeking pardon or indemnity because our hands are clean”.
He said, “It is unfortunate that a few individuals are trying to decide the destiny of nation according to what suits their political interests. Our struggle is not to seek power but to change the present system which seeks to turn 160 million people powerless and mere spectators in the power game. Now the nation is awake and it will not allow anyone to violate the constitution. The laws can’t be changed to suit the interests of one person. Pakistan is a democratic state in which every Pakistani counts. Insha Allah our return will take our struggle into decisive phase and Pakistan will soon have fair and free elections under a neutral caretaker government. General Musharraf has become centre of all problems and is pushing the country into a blind alley.”
He said, ” We will come into power not on the clutches of outsiders but with the support of our people. Pakistan’s sovereignty has been traded for personal power. Pakistan will have good friendly relations with all countries but with self respect and dignity. Pakistani nation has great potential which is being lost because we have not given the people of our country control of their destiny. PML-N will make Pakistan a modern progressive state through restoration of democracy and establishing rule of law.”-SANA
