Islamabad, September 20
Pakistan’s deposed premier Nawaz Sharif on Sunday staged a political comeback by criticising the powerful Army and said the Opposition was not against Prime Minister Imran Khan but against those who brought an “inefficient” man to power. The army should stay away from politics and follow the Constitution and vision of ‘Quaid-e-Azam’ Muhammad Ali Jinnah, he said.
Addressing the All-Parties Conference (APC) hosted by the Pakistan Peoples Party via a video link aimed at launching a protest against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, the three-time premier launched a scathing attack on the ruling party for its “failure to address the basic problems of the people”.
Sharif, 70, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo, has been living in London since November last year after the Lahore High Court granted him permission to go abroad for four weeks for treatment. — PTI
