PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif on Thursday urged the government to be respectful of the courts and their verdicts, saying that the government should not assume the role of the superior courts itself.
Sharif was speaking to the media at the Lahore airport before his departure to London. He warned that there were some elements who were trying to make the judiciary’s supremacy a controversial issue and said that the government was trying to drag the judiciary into politics.
He said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was not an honest institution and that it was not established during his tenure. He said no one has the right to misuse public money.
When questioned about his party’s stance on the fake degrees issue, Sharif said that the PML-N stance on fake degrees is quite clear. He alleged that there were people within the government who support the ideology of the militants.
