Nawaz, daughter return

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz reached Lahore today morning after spending nearly 10 days in London. From the airport they departed for Jati Umra residence. Before leaving for Pakistan Nawaz Sharif in a statement had said, such dual standards will not be tolerated and he would run a strong campaign against it. “My struggle is for the supremacy of law and constitution and I will pay whatever price it takes but won’t let things continue the way they are at present.”

Both had departed for London on December 5 after an accountability court granted them exemption from appearing in references against them, which expired on December 12 and December 15 with respect to Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz.

Earlier, both were due to come back on Sunday last but they delayed their programme in view of the medical tests of Begum Kalsoom Nawaz who is under treatment for her cancer disease in London. While addressing media in London before his departure for Pakistan on Saturday, Nawaz had announced that he would spearhead a fully-fledged movement for the rule of law and Constitution in the country.

Earlier former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, reacting to Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen’s case verdict, said on Saturday that dual standards of law will not be accepted and the decision “speaks for itself”.

“The decision speaks for itself,” said the former prime minister while addressing media in London. “Everything we have said about double standards is being proven right,” he added, reported a private TV channels.
