Lahore : Secretary General, Jamaat e Islami, Liaqat Baloch, has said that the ousted Prime Minister had opted the path of political confrontation because he had no hope of exoneration from the
NAB courts. He was addressing the heads of central sections of the JI at Mansoora on Thursday.
The JI central leader said that Nawaz Sharif had taken the G.T. Road route only to upset the democratic set up after his disqualification by the Supreme Court.
He said public meetings and rallies were the democratic right of the citizens. However, he said that Nawaz Sharif and his family members were facing NAB references and Accountability Courts after disqualification by the apex court. What could happen after their conviction in the accountability process was the writing on the wall.
Liaqat Baloch reiterated that the accountability process should not be confined to the ruling party and should continue till the next elections. He said that the JI would hold a grand function at Mansoora on the Independence Day.
