Says no value of public mandate
GUJRAT: The former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his colleagues are a bit ‘concerned’ that the development process of the country as well as CPEC project could be affected after Sharif’s ouster from the power corridors.
Nawaz Sharif slammed the political rivals in his Gujrat address on Friday while the GT Road ‘homecoming rally’. He asked the crowd whether they were ‘rented’ at which they roared with a ‘no’.
He mentioned several of his services for the country in which he claimed to provide employement, eradicate power outages and elevating the economy. “Everyone would have become employed if I had stayed,” he said. Even the judges admitted that Nawaz Sharif committed no corruption, he added.
Former PM said, “Your votes were torn down … millions of people elected me as PM and a few people made me ineligible. This joke has been repeated for the past 70 years.” Without naming PTI Chairman Imran Khan, he said he is aware of the conspiracy backed by certain people in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
While talking about his disqualification, he stated it has happened to be for the third time, adding that no father takes salary from his son. A crowd roared a ‘no’ when he asked whether should sit in his home. Nawaz Sharif asked for peoples’ support, warning them that the country would struggle if such ousters reoccur.
We will all stand up against this system and no one can stop Pakistan from progressing, he announced while hoping to change the destiny of the country. He equated his public mandate with the honour of 20 million population, reaffirming his claim of no involvement in corrupt practices.
Before concluding his address, he chanted slogans of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’. The ‘homecoming rally’ of Nawaz Sharif, who was ousted by Supreme Court (SC) under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution in Panama Leaks case, has continued its journey towards Lahore via Grand Trunk Road after short stay in Gujrat. Sharif’s cavalcade will reach Gujranwala, where it would likely to spend night and will leave for Lahore on Saturday morning. NNI
