Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leaders said the PML-N will not lodge a protest on a court ruling against Nawaz Sharif but will protest against growing inflation, unemployment, and corruption in the country.

They said Nawaz Sharif was served justice by a court in his previous sentence and they are hopeful that he will be served with justice in this case as well. They said the court ruling didn’t mention for what crime Nawaz Sharif has been punished.

How Haleema Khan’s case has been solved after taking money, Zubair inquired. Pervaiz Elahi who was called to be the biggest robber has been granted provincial assembly speakership.

Addressing a press conference at National Press Club Islamabad, PML-N leaders including Ahsan Iqbal, Mushahid Hussain, former Sindh governor Muhammad Zubair and Rana Sanaullah said the former prime minister was earlier punished for not taking salary and now his ‘crime’ was that he is owner of the company in which his son transferred money to him.

The PML-N leaders said democracy is the only way forward to put the country on the path of development. They said opposition leaders are being targeted in corruption cases but the PTI leaders and their relatives are being benefited.

They said Haleema Khan, Haleem Khan, and Prime Minister Imran Khan have offshore companies but unfortunately, in one case, Qatari letter is a solid proof to give relief to the suspects whereas in other cases, it’s a source of punishment.

Talking to media persons, PML-N senior leader Ahsan Iqbal said the court ruled in two cases, adding that one was in Nawaz Sharif favor and other against him. There is no one word in the ruling statement which could identify the crime of Nawaz Sharif.

It was surprising for them that Nawaz Sharif was sentenced in the company case which was established in 2001 when Nawaz Sharif and his entire family was in exile and Pervez Musharraf was ruling the country. In such a situation, how Nawaz Sharif can be involved in money laundering, he questioned.

Rana Sanaullah said Nawaz Sharif pays respect to institutions and its strong proof was that he appeared in 165 proceedings. He was optimistic that the court will grant relief to the PML-N supreme leader.

Iqbal said a selected prime minister is doing selected accountability in the country. He said PTI leaders have complete freedom to commit corruption whereas the PML-N leaders have been arrested during the course of an investigation. PTI leaders are involved in filing references against PML-N leaders, he maintained.

The PML-N leader said another Q-league has been established in the country in the form of PTI, adding PTI will not be different from PML-Q. Ahsan added the PTI government has pressed the people who stamped on a bat in the first 125 days of its government.

Former governor Muhammad Zubair said Prime Minister Imran Khan himself makes cases against opposition leaders. Why he doesn’t keep eye on his own ministers, he asked. The former governor said how PTI leaders transferred their illegal money in banks.

He said jails and hardships in them are not new practices for PML-N as its leadership had already faced such jails in the past.
