Kaira takes swipe at Sharif for taking to ‘container politics’
LAHORE: Irked by ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s claims of conspiracies against the government, Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) leader Qamar Zaman Kaira asked him to disclose the names of conspirators.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, the former information minister said that Sharif in his tenure had sent an army chief packing as well as a chief justice of Supreme Court.
Coming down hard on Sharif for taking to ‘container politics’, he said the ex-PM has been crying foul about the use of containers in the politics by opponents. “[However], he entered to similar kind of politics today by embarking on GT Road rally.”
He said Sharif is apparently defying the court orders despite his promise to accept the verdict in the Panamagate case whatever it may be. “Tell the masses who has conspired against you,” Kaira urged.
Kaira also lashed out at the provision of security to Nawaz, as what he said that a disqualified person cannot hold any position in a political party while implying misuse of state machinery.
Claiming a low turnout at GT Road rally, he said it simply shows Nawaz’s diminishing popularity.
Moreover, he said that ruling party’s lawyers had no answer when asked about money trail of Sharif family.
