KALAR KAHAR: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif announced on Saturday that his party was ready to accept the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Asghar Khan case, reported Express News.

The apex court had announced its short order on Friday declaring that the 1990 elections were rigged by the then intelligence and army chiefs.

Addressing an event at Cadet College, Kalar Kahar, Sharif alleged that President Asif Ali Zardari had also made a deal with Intelligence Bureau (IB) for his political gains.

He also asked on whose orders a long march towards Islamabad was held to topple the first government of Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif.

Commenting on the ongoing energy crisis, the chief minister said that Pakistan is facing a self-created crisis and urged the government to wake up before it is too late.

    Mr. Chief Minister just accept your part that is proven and let the rest be decided by the courts if they are unbiased. Take care of yourself and don’t worry about others. Legally this case can be termed as treason and mutiny that carry a death penalty and is enforced if happens in any civilized society, but who cares in this bath room where everyone is wearing natural clothing.

    The entire 1990s is so dirty and murky that one can’t separate truth from fiction. And yet the brothers choose to hide behind those fabricated cases based on filthy propaganda campaign which their masters and they launched in the 90s. There is no low for either of them. Recommend

    SC decision is not about money, its about Generals and President’s interference in political process, instead PPP government is trying to hide their corruption behind SC decision. Zardari must bring looted money back to Pakistan.

    oh really!!! who was the main benefactor of this grand rigging… obviously Nawaz Sharif…so it is really sad that after Gen. Zia , Gen. Beg supported Nawaz Sharif Illegally to win the elections.

    Like you have a choice of not accepting it when the truth is in front of everyone. Now we all know that who is the product of the establishment. Too bad gullible people still keep falling for these kind of statements made by the same people who have been making a fool out of them for years.

    As if SC had been given them a choice to accept its decision if they liked. Mr. CM advise your brother to take early retirement from politics before he gets booted out by the Supreme court in its next decision on the role of politicians in the rigging of 1990 election

    Don’t distort the history facts. Establishment lead by Ishaq Khan and Mirza Aslam Beg never wanted Nawaz Sharif as leader of IJI. Their horse was Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi. It was Mian Sharif’s popularity whch changed the tide in his favour. Establishment stabbed in the back of Mian Sahib the first opportunity it got.

    though i think shahabaz sharif is a patriot and he is needed in Pakistan politics but Nawaz sharif should be banned from politics or he should take voluntary retirement because this is not for the first time he has been deeply involved with Generals in rigging .
