JEDDAH: The 10-year deal struck by PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif with former president Pervez Musharraf with the guarantee of Saudi Arabia is the main hurdle for Nawaz to contest elections, informed sources said on Sunday.
Will Nawaz Sharif Stop Being a DUMB?
Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, the chief of PML-N the so-called opposition party is loosing the popular support pretty much rapidly and will soon stand in the line where our President stands right now. Nawaz Sharif is earning himself a national hooting as he does nothing and speaks nothing and after getting a shutup call from Saudi Arabia in the matter of Musharraf, it seems that there is nothing else to do for Nawaz Sharif.
Courtesy to our bad stars, we have got him the opposition leader and as the present dispensation is hell bent on selling the national pride and interests for pennies, we could only hope that PML-N and its leadership leave London, Dubai and Raiwind and put its act together. PML-N hasn’t even uttered a squeal with respect to Kerry-Lugar Bill, which is about to hand over our reins to the Obama and Hillary Clinton.
PML-N does look like a tortoise waiting for its turn to sail through Islamabad and for that matter they don’t want to invite the wrath of the America. It’s just matter of time before this government goes home packing, but rest assured that PML-N would also shrink to the Raiwind form or Jeddah palace if they carry on with their apathy streak in national politics.
If Nawaz Sharif doesn’t feel like understanding the issues or finds himself dumbfounded, he must step down from the PML-N leadership or even better from politics and make room for the fresh blood. And that advice is valid for all the politicians of the country and please we dont want any Bilawal, Hamza, Moonis or any other such son or daughter.
However, a PML-N spokesman categorically rejected the report, saying it was the work of those who had fled the country.
According to sources in Saudi Arabia, Nawaz was told during his meeting with Saudi King Shah Abdullah in Ramazan that if he wanted to keep intact his friendship with the king, he should honour the deal reached with Musharraf.
The sources said that according to the agreement both Nawaz and Shahbaz could neither contest elections nor take part in political activities. Despite this, Shahbaz contested polls, and the Saudi King has reportedly told Nawaz that at least he should honour the deal.
Nawaz and his family signed the agreement on December 2, 2000, the sources added. President Asif Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had also been informed about the reason why Nawaz could not contest elections.
