NOWSHERA: Federal Minister for Defence Pervez Khattak has said that former Premier Mian Nawaz Sharif would be “taught a lesson” for speaking against the state institutions, Khyber News reported Saturday. Pervez Khattak said that Nawaz Sharif, PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari, and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman are together in seeking the NRO from the government but the government would never extend the NRO to the looters of the national wealth. While referring to Nawaz Sharif’s statements about military leadership, Khattak said he would be taught a lesson for speaking against the state institutions. “Maulana could not live without power,” the defence minister said.
He made these remarks while addressing a gathering also attended by Chairman of the Standing Committing of National Assembly on Energy Imran Khattak, Member Provincial Assembly Idrees Khattak, provincial assembly constituency PK-63 candidate Mian Umar Kakakhel and others.
Alleging that the 11-party Pakistan Democratic Movement leaders had committed a huge corruption when in power and now they were trying to save their skin, he said that the incumbent government would fight them single-handedly. He further said that the National Accountability Bureau is tightening noose against Maulana Fazlur Rahman to hold him accountable for accumulating assets through alleged corruption.
