Amir Liaquat wanted to join PML-N, claims Nawaz
ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif while assailing televangelist and religious scholar Dr Amir Liaquat Hussain’s joining the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) said the latter previously wanted to join his party.
During his interaction with journalists inside the accountability court hearing corruption cases against him and members of his family, Sharif said the Imran Khan-led PTI had come into existence for the people like Hussain.
“Amir Liaquat had previously wanted to join the PML-N,” he claimed.
Commenting on the graft cases, the PML-N supreme leader asked why the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) filed supplementary references when it couldn’t find anything incriminating enough to prove him guilty in the previous references.
He said efforts were being made to find something to incriminate him and members of his family.
Without naming anyone, Sharif said they were after his father’s business. If the ruling family was to hold to account at any cost, then it should began from 1937 when Almighty Allah started blessing them, he said.
Drawing a comparison with a Bollywood movie, he said he was being meted out treatment similar to that of Indian film actor Dileep Kumar in a movie in which his wife set his bedroom on fire when she couldn’t win her husband’s affections.
