Will disclose facts about 2014 sit-in soon: Nawaz Sharif

Nawaz asks govt to reveal name of those seeking NRO

ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday said there were facts regarding sit-in – staged by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) outside the Parliament House in 2014 – which would be made public soon.
Talking to media at the Accountability Court, Nawaz Sharif said that he had a lot of facts regarding 2014 sit-in.
Nawaz Sharif said today I wanted to ask where was the writ of the government and the Parliament. He said there were three pillars of the State while one of them was dominant.
With regards to the National Accountability Bureau chief’s recent statement that the bureau’s sun is shining on the entire country, Nawaz said the authority is giving exemptions to people in Sindh.
The former prime minister said the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in Sindh was granting exemption to everyone.
Nawaz Sharif claimed that he is not contesting against the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) or Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf but ‘outside beings’. He said the ‘outside beings’ are busy working on installing a Parliament of their choice.
The Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) supremo asserted that the present times are not an era of the Mughal kingdom, when all power wrested in one hand, asking where the writ of the Parliament and government has gone.
Referring to PPP supremo Asif Zardari’s backtracking from his reported statement against Nawaz, the PML-N chief wondered on whose instructions news channels aired the ‘breaking’ news if Zardari did not make the remarks.
Zardari had claimed on Monday that Nawaz had taken every opportunity to discredit him by making him fight with the establishment while he himself extended a hand of friendship towards them.
Responding to the remarks, Nawaz said on Tuesday that Zardari’s recent statement does not befit the head of a national party, adding that he does not want to engage in a war of words with the former president.
However, Zardari later claimed he never made any such remarks that were attributed to him in the media.
