Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday said the ruling party was not seeking to stoke disputes and had been striving to govern in line with the Constitution.
Speaking to reporters at an accountability court, Sharif said one ought to learn from events transpiring nationwide. “We have seen much. We have had good and bad experiences. They have helped us learn,” he said.
On being questioned about Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) senior leader Aitzaz Asan’s statement about naming conspirators and their cronies Sharif said,”Except me, all the other politicians are involved in corruption. My case is peculiar. It does not involve any such charges.”
Sharif said the country had to be run in accordance with the Constitution. “What happened during the Senate elections goes against the document. There is nothing wrong with striving to uphold the Constitution,” he said.
“Who shared Sanjrani’s address with Imran Khan and Asif Ali Zardari? A probe should be conducted into Mehmood Khan Achakzai’s statement at the tribal protest,” he said.
Nawaz said the enshrined ‘system’ was in dire need of a revamp. The PML-N had been working to further transparency in national politics. Delayed justice is another pressing issue, he said.
