PTI government offers excellent security to Nawaz Sharif in jail
FAISALABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill has said that the government is committed to hitting ‘looters’ and ‘plunderers’ hard and opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif will not be allowed to skip the process.
Talking to journalists here on Sunday, he said that Nawaz Sharif staged a drama to bypass the law but now he stands exposed that his motive was not treatment in England but to save his skin from the rule of law. He said that Shehbaz Sharif was guarantor of Nawaz Sharif and now the government has decided that he would not be allowed to ‘flee’ Pakistan in any case.
He said that the motive of Shehbaz Sharif was also to save himself from the spectra of accountability. To a question as to why Nawaz Sharif is not being brought back to Pakistan through Interpol, he said that the government has already started working on it. He said Nasir Butt was staging a drama to malign Britain that people living there were not safe.
Shahbaz Gill said that this ‘family’ was in the habit of bringing bad name to the benefactors and supporters. “If they (Nawaz Sharif, etc) feel themselves insecure in London, we will provide them excellent security in Pakistani jail,” he said. The nation voted him (Nawaz Sharif) to power but he gave them the gift of price-hike and heavy burden of foreign loans.
Similarly, Nawaz Sharif was once a ‘blue-eyed’ personality of the establishment, but now he was opposing it by tooth and nail, he said, and made a humble appeal to the UK through Pakistan Embassy that Nawaz Sharif would bring a bad name for that country and its tourism industry might face a decline as Nawaz Sharif was projecting that London was an unsafe place.
He termed Sharif family ‘gobbles who were telling lies repeatedly’ so that people could believe that it was the truth. About return of Shehbaz Sharif in the past, he said that he came back as he expected that Imran Khan’s government will fail to handle the economy and he will be there to enjoy another chance of ruling the country.
