Lahore(September 26, 2017): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Fawad Chaudhry lashed out at former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and said the way the PML-N have ridiculed the Supreme Court’s verdict is unprecedented in country’s history.
Chaudhry was addressing a press conference in Lahore on Tuesday.
Referring to Supreme Court’s verdict in which Nawaz Sharif was disqualified as the country’s prime minister, he said that the Nawaz keeps asking why was he was disqualified as he failed to prove his innocence during the 134-day hearing of the SC and additional 60-day probe of the Joint Investigation Team, which was formed to probe former PM’s assets.

” When you are being inquired about your source of income, you are replying, why i was ousted. Hassan Nawaz purchased a house in London with 600 crore rupees, when asked how your son purchased this house? then you are crying that conspiracy has been hatched against democracy”.
On Nawaz’s appearance before the accountability court on Tuesday, Chaudhry said that government spent millions of rupees for a five-minute appearance of the former premier.
He also criticised Nawaz’s manner of reaching the accountability court as he was surrounded by an escort of 45 cars.
Fawad claimed that Nawaz has not returned to the country for accountability but to save his seat. “How can we expect these people to bring about change?”Chaudhry alleged that PML-N leaders are employing delaying tactics to escape punishment.
“Sometimes Nawaz Sharif is not present in the country, sometimes his children are not. These are ways to waste the court’s time.”
He also demanded that the apex court should look into the behaviour and speeches of PML-N leaders and take an action against it.
PTI spokesperson argued that the ex-PM wouldn t have to ask Mujhe Kyu Nikala if money trail had been provided.
He inquired why the ruling PML-N had declared war on the Supreme Court of Pakistan. “Nawaz Sharif s five and a half minute appearance in NAB court cost millions of rupees to the nation,” he claimed.
Fawad Ch told people with such luxury lives cannot bring revolution, adding that he came to accountability court with 45 vehicles and federal ministers.He repeated the allegations of money laundering and tax evasion on Nawaz Sharif and his children. “Face the cases like a man instead of acting like widows,” he told ex-PM.
“Nawaz Sharif came back home to save his politics … he was given an opportunity to provide money trail but he wasted it. Courts should not come under his pressure. He raised allegations on the top court.”
Talking further, PTI spokesperson asked why the JIT members would conspire against the former premier, adding that there is no comparison between cases of disqualification of Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan.
Finance Minister Ishaq Dar will be indicted by the accountability court tomorrow [Wednesday]. “But, he has no shame as he did not leave his portfolio as yet,” he added.
