Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has said his party will not take dictation on the 'minus formula', Express News reported.
“We didn’t choose the policy of conflict but were then dragged into a conflict. However, we will not take any dictation on the minus formula now,” he said during a party meeting at the Punjab House after he flew back from London.
The ousted prime minister advised his party leaders to refrain from giving emotional reactions and told them it was time to take a principled stance.
“If we stand for our principles, no one will be able to break us. The decision party take will have to be followed by every worker including myself,” Nawaz said.
