Islamabad (April 09, 2018): Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday called for level playing field for all political groups in the upcoming general elections and said that if any party is pushed against the wall then it would be a pre-poll rigging.
Talking to the media on Monday, Nawaz said that Punjab government was being criticised over performance. He added that the masses knew well about the performance of the Punjab government.
“It should not happen that someone is suppressed or pushed against the wall and the other is given free hand to do whatever they want to do,” he said adding that if this happens then it would be a pre-poll rigging.

He said that remarks were made that the performance of the Punjab province was not good but everyone knows that the performance of the Punjab province is far more better than the other provinces.
“We cannot understand the use of such words against the government,” he said.
The PML-N supreme leader said that statement from the chief justice for timely elections and rejecting a judicial martial law is the right decision but the event occurring in the back drop including sidelining him from premiership and party presidency and the Senate elections negate his remarks.
The former premier said that the chief justice of Pakistan, Imran Khan and Asif Ali Zardari “were singing the same tone”.The remarks came a day after the Supreme Court summoned the National Accountability Bureau’s prosecutor general on April 14 to look into the hiring of individuals from the private sector as well as foreign experts in the Punjab Saaf Company.
Earlier, he said that the “court verdict in the high-profile Panama Papers case had caused a dent to the pace of progress in Pakistan”. He said that depreciation in the value of rupee was due to uncertainty in the country.
Replying to a question, he said that he would consult with lawyers on the proposal of live broadcast of accountability court proceedings.
Last week, Maryam Nawaz had demanded live broadcast of the court proceedings.
