Nawaz’s allegations against Zardari unsubstantiated: Farhatullah Babar


President Spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar on Sunday deplored what he called unsubstantiated accusations hurled by PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif against President Asif Zardari

“Nawaz’s remarks aim at dragging the president into partisan political controversies,” he said.

Referring to a public meeting held by the PML-N leader, Farhatullah Babar said, “The president, as head of the state, and in deference to recent court’s observations, has scrupulously refrained from indulging in partisan political activities or making political statements”.

“Even though there is enough material to retort to Mian Sahib’s allegations in a befitting manner, the president would refrain from directly responding to the allegations as he respects the dignity of his high office,” he said.

He hoped “political leaders would avoid dragging the President into partisan political contests and will uphold the spirit of the court’s ruling”.
