(Pak Destiny) Railways Minister Saad Rafique has asked “What is Nawaz Sharif’s crime as conspiracies are being hatched to oust him”?
Perhaps none else but Saad Rafique himself gives a beautiful answer to it… “amassing of public wealth and parking it in his account”.
On the direction of the party boss, Rafique has launched an attack on the institutions especially the establishment alleging they have made a plan to send Nawaz packing.
In his back to back emotional speeches in Lahore Rafique warned of anarchy if any adverse decision comes against Nawaz Sharif in Panama Papers case. “Playing the disqualification (of Nawaz Sharif) game is like playing with fire,” he said.
“We have not been allowed to perform freely during the last four years. Imran Khan must understand the sensitivity of the situation… he will be responsible for the consequences. Playing the disqualification game is like playing with fire,” he warned.
He said that Pakistan could not move forward without democracy. “Those who do not like our faces must rethink; can’t they wait another 11 months [for the 2018 election]? The snakes of the Islamabad sit-in are wounded, but not eliminated,” he thundered.
In an apparent reference to the words used by a judge of the Supreme Court to describe the prime minster and his party, Mr Rafique said: “Words such as ‘godfather’ and ‘Sicilian mafia’ hurt us. Such words should not be used [for a political party]… or a leader who is delivering for the country.”
Rafique in fact is telling the people ‘wring on the wall’… that Nawaz is going to be disqualified and the PML-N will create anarchy in Pakistan if this happens. But hardly the opposition is showing any concern bout this as it wants ouster of Nawaz Shrif in Panama case any time soon. – Pak Destiny
