ISLAMABAD: PML-N Chief Mian Nawaz Sharif criticised President Asif Zardari for visiting the UK days after British Prime Minister David Cameron’s anti-Pakistan remarks.

Nawaz was presiding over a meeting of parliamentarians from Rawalpindi at the Punjab House in Islamabad.  He said external forces are supporting the controversial National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO). He said the PML-N wants to protect the democratic system despite the present challenges.

Later during his  visit to Charsadda, Nawaz Sharif said the government should have come to the rescue of flood-stricken people in the country.

“We are disappointed with President Zardari’s tour of Britain,” said Sharif. He added that the government had failed to fulfill its responsibilities and that flood relief efforts could be carried out more effectively.

    I think they are both no lesser than the other. Each is only worried about personal gain, and that they will get no matter what.
