Islamabad(May 15, 2018): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on Tuesday demanded to put the name of former Nawaz Sharif on ECL and asked PM Abbasi to decided whether he is with the party or with Pakistan.
While addressing the House, PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi slammed Nawaz Sharif and said that his controversial remarks about the 2008 Mumbai attacks reinforced the stance of India.“Nawaz leaves no stone unturned to malign Pakistan. What was the need for this statement? His interview became the highlight of newspaper and was then trumpeted by the Indian media.
“The Prime Minister tried to solve the issue in a sincere way and said that Sharif’s statement was distorted. Despite all this, Nawaz rejected the NSC declaration which was also supported by his own premiere. The Prime Minister should now resign over the rejection,” PTI leader asserted. Yesterday, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi comes to defend Nawaz Sharif and said that the PML-N Quaid was misquoted by Indian media and people should not become a party in the propaganda.
After important meetings of National Security Committee (NSC) and with Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi addressed a press conference in Islamabad.
The NSC did not condemn Nawaz, but incorrect reporting of the interview, the PM clarified, referring to the earlier jointed statement by the country’s top civil-military body.
“There was no talk [by Nawaz] of the Mumbai attacks being planned in Pakistan,” Abbasi explained.
“Nawaz Sharif said that Pakistan has not permitted its soil to be used for terrorism,” he added.
“The participants observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities,” a press release issued after the meeting had said.
“The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions.”
“The facts should be made public,” he added.While informing about NSC meeting Prime Minister said that the NSC did not condemn Nawaz Sharif, but the incorrect reporting of the former prime minister’s interview. “The participants observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities,”
