ISLAMABAD: Awami Muslim League Head Sheikh Rasheed said that former prime minister challenged the judiciary in a statement issued on Tuesday.
Reacting to Nawaz’s first press conference after returning to the country, Rasheed remarked that Nawaz has put the final nail in the coffin of his political career.
“I have no other option but to say that Pakistan’s Constitution and Nawaz Sharif cannot work together,” he added.
During the press conference, Nawaz Sharif just shared all his disappointments with the people, said Rasheed, adding “Nation knows that Nawaz’s press conference was against the army and the judiciary.”
They [Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz] are scared of taking army’s name. They don’t know that Pakistan Army is standing with the judiciary, he added.
Nawaz is treating NA-120 by-poll as a test. “If you are so keen on taking tests then please test the entire country” and see what people have to say about you, he added.
Not the one to flee judicial proceedings: Nawaz Sharif
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, addressing a press conference at Punjab House on Tuesday after his appearance at a NAB court, said he was not the one to flee judicial proceedings
He once again questioned the grounds of his disqualification once more as well as the way the corruption cases against him are proceeding.
Senior party leaders, including Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, were present alongside the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader.
Nawaz began his address by deploring the incident at the accountability court earlier today when a journalist was manhandled.
The former premier said he had gone to London to be with his ailing wife, but rumours were created stating that he would not return.
The former premier said despite false cases and torture, he never bowed down before a dictator. “We believe in the supremacy of law, and have sacrificed greatly for it,” he said.
He reiterated the proceedings of the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case, in which a Joint Investigation Team was formed, as well as its July 28 judgment which resulted in the appointment of a monitoring judge.
