RAIWAND: Strongly rejecting Supreme Court decision on Sharif brothers’ eligibility case Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif has said that it was not decision but an order issued by Supreme Court on the behalf of President Asif Ali Zardari.
Addressing a press conference here after the Supreme Court’s verdict, he said that President Zardari offered PML-N leader Shahbaz Sharif on a lunch party for a “Business Deal” in which Zardari stated that SC would clear them from the case if PML-N supported to extend Chief Justice Abdul Hamid Dogar’s service.
Nawaz revealed that CJ Dogar himself conveyed a message that they would be indemnified if they gave up supporting the lawyers’ movement but he and Shahbaz Sharif rejected the offers for the better interest of the country. He said that a layman could imagine that the verdict was not given by the judges rather it was issued by President Zardari.
PML-N Quaid strongly criticized President Zardari saying his party made coalition with PPP on the basis of sincerity but “President Zardari stabbed in his back in a way that he cannot believe that such a person is living on the earth”, he added.
“It was attack on Pakistan, everybody knows who is behind the PCO judges and they have taken revenge from them and presented the verdict as a gift to President Zardari on his arrival back from China,
“He would have struck a deal with Zardari, if his legibility, designations, Punjab government or anything else is dear to him”
He said, “now people of Pakistan will take the decision regarding it as only they have right to take decision about it and they have made the decision after issuance of SC verdict”.
He challenged President Zardari to have a referendum in the country if he did not believe in Sharif brothers’ credibility.
“Now the day has come, the history of country will have to be changed. NRO is the big hurdle in the way of implementation of the national agenda as President Zardari is not ready to restore deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry due to NRO”,
“Dogar court dismissed the condition of BA within a day to pave the way for President Zardari but the elected Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was disqualified through a conspiracy”, Nawaz stated. He urged the nation to come out from the homes to play a part in the lawyers’ movement in order to bring democratic revolution in the country.
To a question, he said that his party would not let anybody to take over Punjab government as Punjab government was not given in charity; however, he said that new chief minister name would be announced within few days.
When asked, he said that President Zardari asked him many times to give legal cover to former president Musharraf’s extra constitutional steps including steps of Nov-3rd, 2007 but on his refusal President Zardari took revenge from him.
To another question, he said that President Zardari slapped on the face of PML-N mandate in Punjab. On the occasion, Shahbaz Sharif confirmed that President Zardari offered him for a “Business Deal” but he did not revealed as every thing could not be revealed on the spot. To another question, he said, “PML-N would not let anybody to capture Punjab”-SANA
