Zardari patronizes SC judgment: Shahbaz

LAHORE: Former Chief Minister Punjab and President Pakistan Muslim League PML (N) Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said on Saturday President Asif Ali Zardari patronized Supreme Court verdict to disqualify us while it is our strong conviction that Pakistan People’s Party was not involved in it.

Addressing a press conference here, he ruled out involvement of PML (N) activists in hurting the feeling of PPP amid staging protests in Rawalpindi and termed those, involved in damaging Shaheed Benazir Bhutto’s monuments, as militants and extremists.

“Our party workers are demonstrating peacefully which is their fundamental democratic right”, he added revealing that “We are in pursuit of supremacy of independent judiciary in Pakistan and want to restore judiciary on November 2 position, which we pledged with 160 million people of Pakistan before February 2008 general polls.” Shahbaz underlined that their ultimate goal was to make Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal’s dream come true instead of attaining power. He also urged PPP activists in Punjab not to accept Governor-rule.-SANA

  • Shahbaz continues to use this isolation approach for Asif Zardari. I thought after ten years the Sharifs had learnt a thing or two about patience and political vision – that transitions to democracy are not possible without comprehensive efforts. And it totally shocked me to hear both brothers the first night, when they set the precendent for violent demonstrations. Freedom of expression?? Dear God! in a country where it takes years for a project to complete and run can we really afford destruction of the sorts we have seen? Many say if this continues till the Long March we’ll possibly ignite a situation countrywide! To discard all democratic framework and ethos when the Sharifs interest is at stake? Very relevant democracy wouldn’t you agree?
