Nawaz responsible for current critical situation: Aitzaz Ahsan

  • PPP leader says former PM ridicules legal system by not abiding by NAB law

LAHORE: Senior Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Senator Aitzaz Ahsan on Sunday accused former prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif of bringing Pakistan to a critical juncture.

“He has ridiculed the country’s legal system by not abiding by the National Accountability Bureau’s laws,” Ahsan lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president.

He said that the former president Pervez Musharraf and former prime minister and PPP leader Yousuf Raza Gillani had set a better precedent by obtaining bail.

“Nawaz is responsible for bringing Pakistan to the critical juncture that it stands on today,” Ahsan said.

The PPP leader blamed NAB for neither arresting Nawaz nor adding his name to the exit control list (ECL).

Ahsan went on to claim that Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar also hold work permits of foreign countries.

He alleged that Pakistan’s decisions are being made in London, referring to recent PML-N meetings in England’s capital including a huddle attended by the senior leadership of the ruling party.
