Subversion of constitution, imposition of martial law, absence of rule of law behind the backwardness of the country: Nawaz Sharif.
CHALLAS, November 07, 2009 (Frontier Star): PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif has said repeated subversion of constitution, imposition of martial law, derailment of democracy and lack of rule of law are behind the backwardness of the country. PML-N Quaid said this while addressing a public meeting in the area of Challas Saturday. "Some one dissolves assembly and imposes martial law. Some one executes prime minister. Some one exiles the prime minister, arrests the judges, sends them home and compromises on the national sovereignty. The whole nation is suffering due to these things, he added. The law of right is might had given rise to problems in the country, he remarked. Nawaz Sharif held he did not remain in exile for 8 years willingly but he was kept in exile forcibly. "But I did not bow my head before Pervez Musharraf. National interests remained the focal point of our 10-year spanning struggle, he maintained. "We are still struggling for Pakistan and will not compromise on it", he asserted. "We waged struggle for restoration of judiciary and the judiciary achieved independence by the grace of Almighty Allah today. We are now struggling for the revival of constitution. People of Pakistan are eagerly looking for when the constitution and democratic system are restored fully", he underscored. A country becomes laughing stock in the comity of nations when its judges are arrested and a society can never flourish where there is no justice, he held. "We built motorways and roads. We transformed the country into nuclear power by conducting tit for tat 6 nuclear tests. We did not commit any crime or sin", he maintained. The general who used to call him commando by waving his punch had fled from the country, he remarked. PML-N remained stuck to its stance on National Reconciliation Ordinance, he told. The elected government should complete its tenure, he said. Earlier addressing a public meeting in Astore in connection with Gilgit-Baltistan elections, he said elections should be held in fair, free and transparent manner. He announced to double the quota of Gilgit and Baltistan in medial colleges at Punjab besides increasing the seats by 50 number for the students of Gilgit and Baltistan in agriculture university.
