QUETTA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Balochistan chapter Secretary General Jamal Shah Kakar has said that his party didn’t oppose free and fair accountability in the country but the incumbent government was busy in political victimisation of its opponents in the name of accountability.
“Former PM Nawaz Sharif and opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif were being trialed for crimes which could not be proved in courts. Indeed without accountability the country can’t walk but political victimisation in the name of accountability is maligning the name of accountability in Pakistan,” the PML-N leader told a press conference on Friday.

He added that the PML-N is a leading political party of the country that has always put country’s development first. However, during the last general elections the PML-N mandate was stolen as favourite politicians were elected through blatant rigging, he alleged.
Kakar said: “Pakistan was placed on the path of development during 2013-18. The PML-N gained public support in 2018 elections but the results were changed and our victory was turned into defeat”.
On Balochistan, he said country’s development is linked with peaceful and prosperous Balochistan.
The PML-N is still popular in Balochistan and many veteran politicians have been in contact with provincial leadership of the party, he claimed.
