LAHORE (NNI) - Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had talked with US diplomats about a plan of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) aimed at toppling the government of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). Former US Ambassador in Islamabad, Anne Patterson informed this to US Secretary of State through an October 5, 2009 secret dispatch, which has been released by the WikiLeaks. In that letter, she detailed a meeting of Shahbaz Sharif with US diplomats on October 2, 2009 in which he told them how his party was paving the way for midterm elections. The Punjab CM told them that owing to the bad governance and rampant corruption by the PPP, the very existence of the democratic system was in grave danger. He said that by highlighting the corruption by President Zardari and his cronies, and through use of court verdicts on NRO cases they would head for bringing a no confidence move against the government, and finally demand midterm elections. However, the letter released by WikiLeaks doest not shed any light on the timeframe for this plan. TheNation Monitoring adds: One of the cables released by WikiLeaks reveals that former premiere Nawaz Sharif believed that the terrorists who attacked Mumbai on November 26, 2008, were Pakistani in origin. According to a cable leaked by WikiLeaks, a US official claimed that one of the terrorists spoke in a Pakistani accent. The cable (181951: confidential) sent by Acting Principal Officer Clinton Taylor of the US Consulate in Lahore on December 9, 2008, describes how the PML-N leader told a visiting delegation of US Senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham that he had listened to the phone call made by one of the attackers to an Indian TV channel, and even though the individual claimed he was Indian, he had heard a Pakistani accent. Although, Nawaz Sharif later refused claims that the terrorists were from Pakistan, at the December 6 meeting, he showed no signs of being in doubt of their Pakistani origins. The people involved were from this country - I am convinced, Mr Sharif is quoted as saying. We must take strictest action against those elements. Once India produced concrete evidence, We should proceed whole hog, he declared. Nawaz Sharif was perhaps trying to stay in the good books of US and in doing so securing his prospects as a future leader of the country. Further cementing his image as a secular and fair politician, he also told the senators that his party had acted responsibly with the ruling PPP to fight terrorism.
