Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Friday criticized Shahabaz Sharif’s imprisonment and Said that NAB shoud first investigate Prime Minister Imran Khan’s family assets.
While commenting on Shahbaz Sharif’s imprisonment he said “For what crime has Shehbaz been imprisoned? Someone should ask how accountability is being done. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) should remain the way it is right now, if we are suffering then others should too.” “NAB should probe into Imran Khan’s helicopter and his family’s assets. Record of our family’s source of income from 1937 is available.” He added, “We are asked time and again why we went out of the country after 1999. Pervez Musharraf exiled us, we did not go on our own.” He said “Shehbaz fought election for the first time from Karachi and only lost by 500 votes to Faisal Vawda and we all know how he won.”
He also criticized government over historic devaluation of Pakistan’s currency and said that the dollar wasn’t even raised by 10 paisas without permission during his term. “There was a balance between the dollar and rupee during my time. The world called our economy strong and balanced from 2013 to 2017,” he said outside the Supreme Court. Pointing towards the government, the ex-premier said, “If they say we used artificial means to stabilize the dollar, then they can do it too.” “What is the artificial way to maintain the price of dollar?” he further questioned. “Were there ever such long queues at CNG stations?”
