Key points of the former PM Nawaz Sharif APC address
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif alleged in his virtual speech on Sunday that the institution of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has turned into a tool for revenge against political opponents.
Nawaz Sharif, while virtually addressing the all parties conference (APC) hosted by Pakistan People’s Party, thanked the participants of the event and prayed for health recovery of PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari.
The PML-N supremo also thanked Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. He initiated his speech by thanking opposition parties for giving him the chance to express his thoughts.
Sharif said that he believed the organisation of the opposition’s APC as a decisive turn in the country’s politics and brave decisions are needed to be taken. He added that it is necessary to review the history of events in Pakistan’s development and democracy.

“I am fully agreed with the stance of Maulana Fazlur Rehman as we have to make this event conclusive by defying all old traditions and formalities. I am having a vast experience in Pakistan’s politics and public opinion is real democracy.”
He added that the APC should also hold consultations over a new charter if it is required.
