Nawaz Sharif Addresses To Supporters In Jhelum

Published on August 11, 2017 by admin6

A defiant Nawaz Sharif on Thursday criticised the judiciary for forcing him to quit as prime minister, saying it was an ‘insult’ to 200 million people of Pakistan that their elected leader was unceremoniously ousted with a single stroke of pen.

A five-member Supreme Court bench last month disqualified Sharif for dishonesty and ruled that corruption cases be filed against him and his children over the Panama Papers scandal.

“It is an insult to 200,000 people of Pakistan. You voted for me, but the five honourable judges sent me home with a single stroke of a pen,” Sharif told his supporters in Jhelum on the second day of his journey from Islamabad to Lahore via the Grand Trunk (GT) Road.
