SARGODHA: Deploring the ‘double standard’ of justice, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday said the court set a different standard of justice for Imran Khan in a disqualification case.
Addressing a public rally in Kot Momin here, ousted PM Sharif said Khan was vindicated by the courts despite he admitted of owning an offshore company.
“Dual standard of justice is travesty of justice,” he underscored. “The supremacy of law will be restored at any cost,” Sharif added.
Referring to Khan’s excessive criticism, Sharif said “he is hurling allegations at others but he himself is a corrupt man”.
Calling the gathering of a sizable crowd a ‘referendum’, Sharif said the turnout of people at the venue is evident proof of his party’s growing popularity in aftermath of the Panamagate saga.
Enumerating the projects that were initiated in his tenure, Sharif said the impact of his ouster slowed down the emerging economic growth in the country.
Calling the youth of country as his army, the deposed premier said the judiciary has to make a response to the questions being raised by the masses.
It was the first major public rally of ruling party after GT Road Rally following Sharif’s ouster by Supreme Court’s landmark July 28 verdict last year.
