Islamabad, Oct 22 (www.pakdestiny.com) Shahbaz Sharif wants disqualification of his elder brother Nawaz Sharif for receiving Rs3.5 million from the ISI to stop the PPP to come to power in 1990 as he is eyeing up his elevation to the prime ministership.
A PML-N man close to Shahbaz Sharif told Pak Destiny that Shahbaz wanted disqualification of Nawaz, paving way to his elevation as premier of the country. “Once Nawaz is convicted in this case, Shahbaz will be the automatic choice of his party for the slot of prime minister after winning 2008 elections,” the source said.
Nawaz Sharif is reportedly upset over the Supreme Court’s decision in the Asghar Khan case as it may have serious implications on his political career. He is also angry at Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry for giving ‘too much favour’ to the PPP just before next elections as it will batter the PML-N and capitalize on the verdict.
