PML-N Supremo Nawaz Sharif has again questioned why his governments were removed when he had put the economy of the country in the right direction, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing the Central Working Committee (CWC) of PML-N at Model Town Lahore on Saturday, PML-N supremo said that during his two stint, mega projects were launched but they were not allowed to continue. Nawaz said, “We call for accountability of those who destroyed and ruined Pakistan.” Nawaz said he was omitting a lot of details and only wanted to ask one thing, “three people sit down and disqualify a prime minister representing 250 million people for life.” He said judges could not remove prime ministers or presidents in any other country of the world but here he was removed on a “small matter of not taking salary from my son”. “Who will answer for this?” he said, adding that he had the right to ask this question. Nawaz also referred to the early resignations of former Supreme Court judges Ijazul Ahsan and Mazahar Naqvi, saying they should be questioned why they resigned before their tenures and that legal proceedings should be conducted against the latter. Nawaz Sharif also said he has listen the audio leak of former chief justice where he was talking of disqualification of a prime minister. “I have the right to ask my nation this question that do you think before voting what Nawaz Sharif’s performance was and what was that of his opponents? … the nation should answer this. I have a slight complaint with the nation as well. A prime minister is removed in a false case of not taking a salary from his son and the nation stays silent, this is not right.”


Nawaz Sharif said during 1999, PML-N govt was running smoothly but a dictator Pervez Musharraf removed his government and made him a hijacker. Nawaz further said like-wise during 2018, when PML-N started the government, dharna and 35 punctures propaganda was launched against PML-N. He told the PML-N workers and leaders that he still could not learn why and on which grounds, his governments were removed. Former PM said after his removal he was questioned why you built motorways in the country. I told them that “PML-N wanted to contribute for the development of the country”.

Nawaz said after getting victory in 2013, he visited PTI chief and requested him to play positive role for the development of the country. He said during 2013 we were facing problem to arrange visit of Chinses President for CPEC due to protests and dharnas. He said during 2013, PTI was not in position to form government in KP and PML-N supported PTI for the formation of their govt in KP.

He said that upon assuming power in 2013, the first thing he did was go and visit PTI founder Imran Khan in Banigala in order to come to an agreement on working together for the country’s sake. Nawaz said Imran subsequently went to London, along with other political figures of the time, and then a “plot was hatched”, after which protests were launched in the country upon the PTI founder’s return.

The PML-N supremo said he was left befuddled by the development and said he should have been informed and told about the matter or whatever the PTI’s reservations were.

“I visit you and you stab me in the back by assuring cooperation and then you begin protests in Islamabad’s D-Chowk?” Nawaz said his cabinet members had called for police force against the protests but he had told them to desist. Despite this, Nawaz said his government managed to secure the historic China Pakistan Economic Corridor project.

 The PML-N supremo said it was a “matter of record” that his government had not impeded the formation of the PTI government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after the 2013 elections despite being in the position to do so through a coalition. Regaling the economic performance of his past government tenures, Nawaz asked the nation which political party had best served them and said it should think about these matters before casting their votes. During the CWC meeting, Nawaz said it had been some time since the PML-N collective had last assembled in such numbers. “It is very good that the leadership of every province is present here. We have gathered after a long time,” he said, adding that everyone had faced problems of their own from exile to fraudulent legal proceedings.

He commended his party leaders for bravely facing their tribulations, adding that the party’s fortunes had now reversed and PML-N workers once facing cases were now sitting in the assemblies with some holding constitutional offices as well. He concluded his speech by lauding the performance of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and predicting a turnaround in the country’s fortunes. The CWC earlier accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif from the party’s presidency and nominated him as acting president.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif addressing the CWC meeting said that handing over of party’s leadership to Nawaz Sharif was the happy and satisfactory moments for him.

Shehbaz said Nawaz Sharif was removed from the party chairmanship illegally and an it was severe violation of law and justice. And during hard times, party’s leadership was handed over to him and now again he was handed over the party leadership to Nawaz Sharif. PM Shehbaz also thanked party for electing him as party president. PM Shehbaz had stepped aside from the PML-N presidency, stating that “the time has come” for his brother to retake his “rightful place as the president of the party”. Nawaz was removed as the president of the party in 2018 after a Supreme Court (SC) bench headed by then-chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar ruled that an individual disqualified under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution cannot serve as head of a political party.
