ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Advisor on Transparency and Home Affairs Barrister Mirza Shahzad Akbar Wednesday said that the authorities of the United Kingdom (UK) were ordered to expel from their country the imprisoned former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Speaking at a news conference in Islamabad, accompanied by Special Assistant to Shahbaz Gill, Prime Minister for Political Communication, he said Pakistan had written a letter to the United Kingdom to revoke the Nawaz Sharif visa granted for medical treatment after the undertaking had been taken.
The six month visa has not been extended by the United Kingdom yet. Negotiations persisted with the United Kingdom for the expulsion of Nawaz, adding that the last two administrations did not seek to expel Altaf Hussain, former leader of the Mutahida Quomi Movement (MQM), from the United Kingdom.
In the latest BBC interview, Shahzad Akbar said PML(N) chief and former finance minister Ishaq Dar was thoroughly revealed. It was obvious from the interview that Dar was an absconder and did not come before the courts.
Castigating Ishaq Dar, he said Dar had wrongly claimed that he had only one property in Lahore, while both in Pakistan and in Dubai, the former finance minister had property/bank accounts. The extradition of Ishaq Dar has also been sought by the British authorities. He wondered why, in such an important forum like the BBC, Dar had brazenly levelled false charges of custodial killings over NAB.
It is incomprehensible that Dar decided to interview the BBC under his orders. It was a desperate attempt to refute the charges against him.
The opposition struggled miserably to assemble a few thousand people last Monday in Multan. At their public conference, they had just managed to attract a limited amount of participants. The opposition is now seeking to organise another small “Jalsi” rally in Lahore. They have threatened people’s lives by exposing them to crowds.
He said that people do not attend the public meetings of the opposition parties in big numbers either.
As the second wave of Covid-19 is proving to be more deadly, the opposition parties must act responsibly and avoid playing with people’s lives. People, like adults, have forgotten Ishaq Dar. Latest results in Gilgit-Baltistan have shown that Tehreek-e-Insaf Pakistan is still the country’s most successful party.
Speaking on the subject, Special Assistant to Prime Minister for Political Communication Shahbaz Gill said during the interview that Ishaq Dar was trembling. The enemies of the government, including the leadership of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, tried to declare Pakistan a fascist country. They had already foiled their sinister plans.
In his interview, Ishaq Dar said the Pakistan general election was stolenBBC anchor responded that PML-N should have filed an election petition. He said the BBC has been trying for a long time to interview Nawaz Sharif. Dar’s interview was a mix of shamelessness and embarrassment.
In Pakistan, he said that Ishaq Dar enjoyed the status of a money laundering midwife. Dar should return to Pakistan and give Pakistan media interviews, but he will have to clear himself of corruption cases.
According to Vice President PML-N Maryam Nawaz, Vice President PML-N Maryam Nawaz was a famous thief, citizens who could not become a clerk remained Pakistan’s finance minister.
In his remarks, Shahbaz Gill, Special Assistant on Political Correspondence, said that corrupt politicians sitting abroad should return to the nation and face the courts. He said the national exchequer was being plundered by these leaders.
