QUETTA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Balochistan chapter President Gen (retd) Qadir Baloch said the imprisonment of the Sharif brothers cannot eliminate the party from country’s politics.

Talking to reporters on Saturday, the PML-N president said the top leadership of the party has been victim of political vandalism as the anti-corruption watchdog did not prove any corruption allegations against the Sharifs.

Baloch said, “The PML-N never encouraged corruption in the country”.

He urged the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to ensure “neutral accountability” in the country rather than framing cases against opposition parliamentarians. He also criticised the new federal government, saying that most of the members of federal cabinet are facing corruption allegations.

On burgeoning inflation, the president said the incumbent government has completely failed to provide relief to the masses because depreciation of rupee has increased inflation, which has hit people hard.

“The Centre is busy in yelling about corruption in Pakistan and defaming the sovereignty of our country,” he said, adding that foreign investors were reluctant to invest in Pakistan.

In view of ongoing financial crisis, he said that the opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari tried to help but the government did not entertain them.

Baloch said, “The opposition parties is trying to unite all opposition parties under one umbrella, but we don’t have any intention to disturb Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government as the opposition will give PTI a chance to rule the country”.

On Balochistan government, Baloch reiterated his stance and lauded Jam Kamal’s selection for the chief minister’s slot. “Though he has been attempting to make me jobless, as a politician, I still wish him well,” he said.
