Lahore, 27th September: PML-N leader Shehbaz Sharif claims that if the time comes, he will not shy away from resigning and be ready for the arrest.
Baaghi TV: PML-N president and opposition leader Mian Shehbaz Sharif has said that he is ready for arrest, if the time comes, he will not delay in resigning.
He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan wants to arrest me. We will now not give a minute to the government, giving more time to the present government would be tantamount to wreaking havoc on the country. They got a lot of time but they brought the country to the brink of economic ruin. I have not been in touch with state institutions for these two years.
Ever since I was in politics, the purpose of these contacts has not been for personal gain, he said, adding that the speech delivered by PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif in the APC was a political fact of the country’s history.
The urge to stay within its constitutional limits was not intended to confront anyone, nor are we convinced of confrontation. Shehbaz Sharif was holding informal meetings with senior journalists and anchors at the party’s headquarters in Model Town yesterday in which the party leadership Khawaja Asif, Ahsan Iqbal, Ayaz Sadiq, Amir Maqam, Khurram Dastgir, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Rana Sana, Maryam Aurangzeb, Azmi Bukhari and others were also present.
He gave a detailed briefing before the talks and with reference to the projects of his time said that these projects were not only completed fast but also saved billions of rupees of Pakistan in these projects, we ended the power crisis through these projects.
He also said that my arrest will not be due to any corruption but because Imran Khan is trying, he is worried about me because he considers the atmosphere of political reconciliation in the country harmful to him, he said with reference to the Gilgit-Baltistan election process.
Regarding the meeting of the Chief of Army Staff, he said that it was of special strategic importance but the Prime Minister himself was not present.
He said that the Army Chief was also present at the meeting convened in February last year on the serious situation created by the Indian violation of Pakistan’s airspace but Prime Minister Imran Khan himself was not present.
The meeting started an hour late waiting for him. Why don’t they want to sit with the opposition, what is their problem, he said.
In a press conference with Maryam Aurangzeb, PML-N Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal said that every word of Nawaz Sharif is paramount, we will not allow Pakistan to become a one-party state. No one can break or weaken the PML-N. We will work hard with the leadership of the APC. We consider the vision of the party leader as a political doctrine.
After the APC, there has been an earthquake in the government houses. Attempts are being made to suppress the voice of the opposition with threats. The PTI has been declared victorious with magic spells. Today, the fascist government is working on a one-party agenda but will not allow Pakistan to become a one-party state.
Pakistan is facing serious threats today, pre-poll rigging has started before the Gilgit-Baltistan elections and the government wants to arrest Shehbaz Sharif so that the PML-N cannot participate in the election campaign.
The government also wants to keep the PML-N out of the local body elections. The army cannot win the hybrid war without the help of the people. Efforts are being made to stifle the opposition and suppress the voice, he said.
I went with him at the request of Sharif. I did not have a one-on-one meeting with the Army Chief. We will work hard with the APC leadership. We hope that the judiciary will take notice of the illegal and unconstitutional actions of the NAB.
Attempts to arrest Sharif will be thwarted, he said, adding that India was not happy with Nawaz Sharif’s speech but was happy with the destruction of the country’s economy and isolation in foreign policy. The decision of the meeting will be made by each party, no faction or grouping in the PML-N.
