President of PML-N Shehbaz Sharif held a press conference in London on Wednesday to announce that “Niazi-NAB nexus had once more been dealt a defeat”.
Shahbaz said,“I have always said that an alliance between Imran Niazi and NAB exists,” “However, their alliance failed yet again.” Sharif said he was summoned to court for a case involving clean drinking water, but was arrested in the case of Ashiana housing scheme for his alleged corruption. “On February 14, 2019, the court gave me bail on merit in the two cases,” he said. The former Punjab chief minister said Pakistan had progressed a lot during the Nawaz Sharif government. “Load-shedding spanned for as many as 20 hours before our government was elected,” he said. “Nawaz Sharif used the resources of the nation to produce 5,000MW electricity.”
He said that over the past year and a half Prime Minister Khan and his advisers had issued statements against the leadership of the PML-N. “Every Pakistani is disappointed with this alliance between Niazi and NAB,” he said.
He also slammed the Prime Minister and called him a “master of U-turns”. “I have never in my life seen a prime minister who lies as much as Imran Khan,” he said. “Had he spent one-fourth of his time for Pakistan’s development circumstances would be different today.”
Sharif said in the past year and a half, when it promised five million houses to people, the government had not built a single home. He said that even an ounce of corruption against the Sharifs could not be proven by the “NAB-Niazi coalition.”
“The failed policies of the PTI government have resulted in unemployment rising in Pakistan. We are burying ourselves in debt,” he said. He said there were some ministers in the government who had used their political influence to have loans written off. “Those who were involved in corruption, you made them your advisers,” he said.
