Shahbaz warns of long march on NAB chief appointment
LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif on Sunday warned the federal government of a long march against the latter’s “obstinate behaviour” regarding the appointment of the chief of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), television reports said.
“I have no personal grudge with the newly appointed NAB chairman Justice (Rtd) Deedar Hussain Shah, but here the matter is of accountability and justice,” he said.
Shahbaz wondered how a loyalist of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) would act with regard to the Swiss cases against Asif Ali Zardari.
Shahbaz Sharif has come out of his skin by expressing his feelings about appointment of Justice Deedar Hussain Shah as Chairman NAB.
He has threatened the Federal Government of another Long March if Mr. Shah is not removed.
The people of Pakistan have been suffering with numerous kinds of calamities; one of them is Sharif family itself.
Shahbaz Sharif is questioning the integrity of Mr. Shah only because he has been a PPP MNA in the past.
Justice Shah’s unblemished record of imparting justice has not washed the “SCAR” he earned by being a PPP man.
This statement of Shabaz Sharif reminds me of the elder brother’s famous words “my blood boils with the mere mention of PPP or Benazir Bhutto”.
It seems signing of the Charter of Democracy (COD) by these hate carriers, Sharif brothers, was a drama. If even a man who has remained CJ of a provincial court after relinquishing his political affiliations cannot wash his “sins”, how can the arch enemy of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto be considered to have forgotten his past feelings against BB.
The two brothers have benefitted a lot with the assassination of BB. The elder brother has gained the top slot in popularity. The party which was considered to be too weak to earn 25 NA seats in 2008 election actually won more than 80 seats after Mohtarma’s assassination. The same is true with Punjab assembly results. Had BB been alive these CIA agents could not muster enough seats in Punjab assembly to get even the leader of opposition in that assembly.
Considering the revelations of Khalid Khawaja about Nawaz hatching conspiracy to kill BB in 1993 before the then elections, his taking money from Osama bin Laden to topple BB in 1990, Khalid Khawaja’s subsequent murder at the hand of an unknown group Asian Tiger and hence successfully stopping him from further revelations, his pressurising Malik Qayyum to convct BB in 1999, his love with Rana Maqbool who is accused of murder attempt on Mr. Zardari in jail during Sharif’s premiership, shedding of crocodile tears outside the Rawalpindi General Hospital on 27 December 2007 but not attending BB’s funeral, letting the crowd cross Punjab Governer House wall while Zardari was inside may well be a basis of his implication in BB’s murder.
