Nawaz Voices Strident Support To SC
Pakistan Muslim League Patron Nawaz Sharif has vowed all-out consistent support to the Supreme Court to uphold rule of law in the country.
Talking to media in Lahore on Friday, Nawaz called for removal of all the NRO beneficiaries in case they do not resign.
Replying to a question vis-a-vis President Zardari’s indemnity, Nawaz said that, “Only the Supreme Court could decide about it and nothing could be said until that”.
The PML-N chief deplored that many big criminals got indemnity under NRO. In answer to a question about court’s rulings, he said the judiciary has been restored after great sacrifices, and added the government should implement SC orders at all costs.
“Huge sacrifices have been rendered for the restoration of judiciary”, Nawaz maintained and lamented that “I did not know that the judiciary has to face such fate after its reinstatement”.
Nawaz reiterated that he would not move an inch from his principled stance regarding judiciary and other issues and pledged to make others do the same.
“Politics or no politics, I will stick to my guns about judiciary”, Nawaz said. He called upon the government to give at least Rs0.1million each to the flood affectees.
