Nawaz Sharif grumbles about language of judges

Trial of Nawaz Sharif Maryam Nawaz and Captain Safdar is approaching conclusion sources

The federal minister was speaking on the recent issue between the two leaders over selection of route for Nawaz's motorcade following the Panama case July 28 verdict.

He further said that instead of creating suspense by saying in his interaction with party leaders that even a leader had advised him to fly back to Lahore instead of taking road route, adding he should himself name the person who had advised him so. So the decision of going back through G.T.Road was not based on the advice of party leaders but journalists.

"It is not appropriate to attribute the decision to take the GT road to one person", said Rafique.

Rafique said that a delegation of journalists had advised Nawaz against opting for the motorway route, after which the former PM had made a decision to take GT Road.

Talking to reporters outside an accountability court in Islamabad, Sharif said that the judges are using a language which "doesn't suit them" and "is an insult to their position".

"On the other hand, I led an election campaign on behalf of the ruling party to mend the public opinion against the PTI and reveal the party's true face in front of people of Lodhran", said the MNA.

Before Nawaz chose to take the GT Road for his procession towards Lahore in August 2017, media reports had claimed that Nisar wanted Nawaz to travel via the motorway and hold the rally only in Lahore.

In his first interview after the NA-154 defeat, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Tareen on Wednesday said that overconfidence among workers cost his party the all important by-election in Lodhran, a PTI stronghold.

Nisar, in the statement, refuted the claims and said a party meeting held in Murree had suggested to Nawaz to take the motorway route due to security concerns.

The remarks were made during a meeting of top party officials, including Nawaz Sharif, Talal Chaudhry, and former law minister Zahid Hamid, a video clip of which was shared by Maryam Nawaz on Twitter on Feb 13.
