PML-N against Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan: Pervaiz Rashid
The PML-N has recommended party supremo Nawaz Sharif to stay in London and not return to Pakistan, Senator Perwiz Rashid said on Friday after the opposition’s announcement of eviction of the government.
Speaking from Live news, Rashid said that the PML-N supremo “was not given justice in Pakistan” and did not expect that he would get justice in the country in future.
In the name of Justice, the judge convicted the PML-N supremo in the Al-Azizia context, the Lahore High Court showed the door, Rashid said.
PML-N stalwart said, “The party has decided that Nawaz Sharif should stay in London and continue his medical treatment.”
Reversing the government’s allegations on PML-N, he said: “There is a demand for a transparent election [an attempt for a] struggle? “
The PML-N leader said that it was indeed “rigging the elections and going against the constitution which is an invitation to struggle”.
“Those who violate the Constitution and seek controversy in elections.”
Rashid said, “We want to live in Pakistan as per the constitution and don’t want confrontation.”
The development has come after the government put in place aspirations on the return of Nawaz Sharif, the Prime Minister himself said that he regretted the decision to allow the government to move out of the country.
‘Can no longer be silent on double standards of accountability’
A day earlier, Nawaz called the outgoing government to abolish its “double standards of accountability”, saying it “could no longer be silent” on the matter.
He was addressing a PML-N Central Working Committee meeting via a video link from London.
“Nawaz Sharif is not made of the kind of stuff that can stand quietly on double standards of accountability,” he said, adding, “No one should try to silence them.”
He said that although Prime Minister Imran Khan is to blame “for the current state of the country”, “it is for those who bring him to power who are really responsible”.
“They have to answer,” Nawaz said.
