LONDON: Flaying the ongoing what observers term ‘dirty game’in politicsin Pakistan, the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that this is the high time that all democratic forces should think the future and destiny of the country rather involving in condemnable blame game.
Talking here with Pakistani media on arrival from Lahore on a week-long private visit, Shahbaz Sharif said that whatever is going on in the name of politics in Pakistan is a matter of great concern and worry for patriotic Pakistanis.
“A calculated move of character assassination of sincere and serious politicians is being carried at the behest of certain forces and a democratically elected prime minister was ousted in a bid of achieving ulterior motives. This practice is no good for people and country.”
Responding to a question, Shahbaz Sharif said that we respect our honourable courts and their decision but they should ensure that their decision should be neutral and on the basis of facts.
As far as Nawaz Sharif’s protest or complaint is concerned, it is his democratic right to express his views and sentiments. Shahbaz Sharif said that he is in London for his routine medical check-up and will meet Begum Kulsoom Nawaz to enquire her health before returning to Lahore back.
Meanwhile, he met Kulsoom Nawaz at her Park Lane residence on Wednesday. He also held a detailed meeting with British Secretary of State for International Development (DFID) Ms. Penny Mordant and discussed with her various development programme for which the UK department may be helpful. At this occasion, Pakistani High Commissioner Syed Ibne Abbas, Head of Chancery Asif Khan and Commissioner for overseas Pakistanis, Punjab, Afzal Bhatti were also present.
