SHEIKHUPURA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Sunday launched another bitter diatribe against detractors and the judiciary, as she said the use of unbecoming language by judges is convincing evidence of their biased mindset towards ousted premier Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing a public rally here, Maryam criticised the judiciary for calling Nawaz Sharif a “thief” and comparing the leader and his party with criminal syndicates like Sicilian Mafia.
She said her father gained ‘popularity’ in wake of the Supreme Court’s landmark July 28 verdict, removing Sharif from his position as Prime Minister and disqualifying him for next five year.
She applauded her father’s move of taking the disqualification verdict to public and letting them to decide his ultimate fate.
She lamented that no elected Prime Minister could complete a five-year mandated term in entire history of Pakistan. “Nawaz Sharif couldn’t go abroad to visit his ailing wife,” she said while deploring the corruption proceedings against him.
“The opponents are working on minus-Sharif formula for last two decades,” she said.
She maintained the insulting elected leaders is tantamount to insulting the collective wisdom of the nation and even termed it an insult to people’s vote.
