Talking to media outside accountability court, Nawaz said that he believes in the power of nation’s ‘thumbs’ than umpire’s finger. He stated that former president Pervez Musharraf constituted National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to obtain certain results before the elections of 2002.
It is feared that the bureau is being used again in the same way against us, he said.
Nawaz Sharif further demanded to abolish rules made in martial law eras. I have commitments with the Constitution and law of this country, he asserted.Nawaz Sharif has said is looking at things like the recent interview of chief justice of Pakistan to a news anchor and a newspaper article detailing the army chief’s ‘doctrine’.
Nawaz said the reason for the attacks against him is his standing with the Constitution. He also regretted becoming part of the Memogate case against the PPP government and Husain Haqqani. The Pakistan Muslim League-N supremo admitted that he has spoken with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on the issue of a caretaker prime minister a couple of times.
