The chief of his own faction of Pakistan Muslim League, Nawaz Sharif on Monday lashed out at PML-Q for supporting Pervez Musharraf in the past, describing their politics as ‘hypocrisy’.

“No one has forgotten that yesterday they were ready to elect Muhsarraf even 20 times in his uniform and now sitting in coalition with those issuing red warrants against the dictator,” the PML-N chief, without naming, criticized Choudhry brothers which legitimized the former dictator’s rule after winning 2002 elections.

“The politics of hypocrisy should come to an end now. They (PML-Q) had termed PPP as foes, but now sitting under the ruling party’s shelter for their own interests,” Nawaz alleged while addressing party’s General Council at Awan-e-Iqbal.

On Sunday, PML-N president Sharif demanded an apology from Chaudhry brothers to the nation for supporting a dictator, saying the PML-N is ready to shake hands with the Chaudhrys if they pledge never to do it again.

Nawaz recalled the days of his government, saying that “there was prosperity everywhere in Pakistan. The country was playing a leading role in Asia. There were no suicide blasts, no terrorism and extremism, unlike today.”

He said Pakistan was planning to export electricity to India during his era, adding that the country had exported sugar to New Delhi at that times, but now it’s importing.

“There was no power and fuel crisis during my era,” he recalled, and vowed to strive for bringing the same governance system back for prosperity and brighter future of Pakistan.

Expressing his optimism for the ‘change’, Nawaz claimed that his faction had successfully brought the change in the past and would struggle for a complete revolution after coming into power.

“Pakistan will soon witness a revolutionary change which I see is not too far. Every PML-N worker is revolutionary and capable of bringing the change. They are the catalysts of change,” the two-time prime minister said.

Earlier, the meeting elected Nawaz’s brother and Chief Minister Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif, as provincial president PML-N unopposed after no one submitted papers for this slot against the serving CM.

Addressing the gathering, newly elected PML-N Punjab President, Shahbaz Sharif said that he was grateful to the general workers of the party who elected him for this position.

The CM reiterated that he would continue to serve people of Punjab by going to each and every corner of the province.

He said former dictator Musharraf has no roots in the country while the party leader Mian Nawaz Sharif is beloved leader of the nation.
