ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah on Tuesday revealed that Nawaz Sharif had approached country’s top court to bring government of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) down on someone else’s directives.
He was addressing a press conference here in Islamabad today.
“Nawaz Shairf had approached apex court to end Zardari [political career] whereas Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) came to his rescue. Such attitude separates PPP from all other political outfits”, asserted Shah in presser.
Shah stated that Nawaz Sharif had confessed to his mistake of approaching Supreme Court (in notorious Memogate scandal) for first time.
Shah made it overtly clear that no one had jurisdiction to rollback 18th amendment.
Responding to a question on Sanjrani, Shah condemned Abbasi’s statement pertaining to Senate chairman while stating that he was not anticipating such statement from man of Abbasi’s stature.
“Consultation of issue of appointment of caretaker premier will be held with Prime Minister (PM) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, not Nawaz Sharif. We (PPP) will try to bring everyone on the same page on name for caretaker premier”. Shah stated while adding, “Consultation will also be done with other political outfits as general polls 2018 are just two months away”.
Shah urged not to compare PPP’s era with the current PMLN’s era. He taunted how masses would be content with the economic situation when even Ishaq Dar (former finance minister) was not happy.
