Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said on Thursday that President Asif Ali Zardari was conspiring against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and trying to create a rift between him and the Army.

He said his party respected all jawans and officers of the Army. However, he said, the PML-N was against the generals who had imposed martial law four times and divided the country. He said had an army dictator not overthrown the PML-N’s second government the Kashmir issue had been solved in February 1999.

Sharif was speaking to media at the residence of PML-N MNA Khwaja Muhammad Asif in Sialkot Cantonment.

The chief minister said President Zardari had shot himself in the foot and ruined his political career by maligning Nawaz Sharif in a recent speech. He said the speech had exposed the president’s true political ambitions.

He said it had proved that the alliance he had made with the PML-N was nothing but ‘a political drama. He said that President Zardari’s advisors were thieves and robbers who had plundered billions of rupees from the national exchequer.

Like Punjab, Sharif said, the PML-N would soon sweep Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. “We will transform Pakistan into the kind of state Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah wanted it to be,” he said.

Hamid Javaid | 10 years ago | Reply Zardari is playing with everyone and compelling everybody to point fingers at each other. Terrorism is providing him much required cover. Just look at the parties and their factions he is keeping them fight among them. Soon Senate would be under his control with the help of Fazalur Rehman group. He is trying to virtually eliminate his opposition from Establishment, Political parties, Media, Judiciary. Once they fight he is relaxed and would be able to launch his product Bilawal Zardari to get sympathy votes. Its time that all institutions, political parties, media, establishment, agencies etc etc should accept accountability, correct its lines and accept mistakes and role over. Save the institutions rather saving personalities or few at the expense of Institutions.I'm 100% sure people of Pakistan will forgive you as they are very open heart and vibrant.Save this country from the looters and corrupt people.
