He said that his conscience is clear and his party should be proud of him as corruption charges against him were not proved in the court.

“My conscience is clear, if I had an iota of burden on my conscience, I would have resigned a lot earlier, I am grateful (to God) that I was not disqualified on corruption charges.” said the former PM.

He maintained that he is not deterred as he has gone through more difficult times in the past.
