Never considered taking revenge against Imran Khan: Nawaz Sharif

Nawaz Sharif Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: President PML-N Nawaz Sharif has said that he never thought of taking revenge against founding chairman PTI Imran Khan and was least bothered about the facilities the former PM is enjoying in Adiala Jail.

Addressing members of PML-N parliamentary party in Senate in Murree on Saturday, Nawaz Sharif referring to Imran Khan’s speech in the USA in which he had said he would get air-conditioners removed from his prison, Nawaz Sharif said he was least bothered about that. “Not one. Get two ACs installed in your prison. I have no objections.”

Calling Imran an ‘estranged’ person, he went on to say that for the last 25 years, he had been threatening the democratic system.

Nawaz asked the PTI founder, Imran Khan, not to blame the PML-N, as they, not his party, were responsible for damaging democracy.

 “The truth of the matter is that the system is in ruins today because of your brand of politics,” the PML-N supremo said.

Nawaz praised the federal and Punjab governments led by Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz for ensuring a rapid decline in inflation, while stressing the need for slashing the energy tariffs.

He claimed that he had always thought about the betterment of the country. “Inflation is coming down in the country while the Pakistan Stock Exchange is also showing signs of recovery,” the PML-N supremo said. 

He specially mentioned Maryam for a marked decline in flour prices and noted a continuous decline in food prices.

Nawaz was full of praise for Shehbaz who, he said, working hard to provide relief to the masses – the main target of the ruling PML-N.

The former prime minister recalled that he had left the government by ending power outages and much lower electricity tariffs.

At the same time, Nawaz described Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as a wonderful person who served jail time bravely and stood by him during a challenging period.
