Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Friday that the party has begun preparations to “welcome” former premier Nawaz Sharif, as his return would tip the results in the party’s favour if an election were to be held in Punjab.
“We have begun preparations to welcome Nawaz from today,” the minister — who is also the PML-N’s provincial president — said at a press conference in Lahore alongside Punjab Information Secretary Azma Bokhari.
Nawaz has been living in London since November 2019 after he was allowed to leave the country for medical treatment.
Earlier this week, however, Nawaz — in an apparent effort to dispel the impression that the PML-N is “running away” from elections in Punjab and seemingly out of legal options to forestall a possible dissolution of the provincial assembly — directed Sanaullah to begin homework for shortlisting suitable candidates for polls.
Last month, PTI chief Imran Khan had announced that his party would disassociate itself from the “current corrupt political system” by quitting the assemblies of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.
Addressing today’s press conference, Sanaullah challenged the PTI chief to dissolve the Punjab Assembly, saying: “We have decided to fight and prepare for the elections.”
He said the “PML-N has taken decisions” and would meet later in the day to implement them.
Sanaullah further said the PML-N supremo’s return would decide the results of the election in Punjab and predicted that the PTI would face defeat. “We are democratic people and are in favour of letting assemblies complete their tenure. But we are not afraid of PTI’s harmless threats.”
With regard to the party’s election campaign, the PML-N leader said the party has divided the nine divisions of Punjab into three parts, adding that committees have been formed to meet party leaders and nominate two candidates in each constituency within two weeks.
“The committees will consist of senior PML N parliamentarians. They will meet the sitting MPAs and those interested in contesting the election. They will visit every constituency and finalise two candidates from each constituency within two weeks.”
The committees will then forward their recommendations to the party higher-ups who would then make a decision on the candidacies, he said.
He further said that committees would also be formed at the union council level for Nawaz’s return. “PML-N workers, under the union council name and banner, will reach Lahore to welcome Nawaz Sharif.
“This welcome will also decide the fate of the election. When the election is announced, Mian Nawaz Sharif will return back to lead the party in the [Punjab] elections.”
The minister asserted that general elections would take place in October 2023. “But if one assembly or both are dissolved, the provincial elections will take place within 90 days”.
Sanaullah went on to say that he was privy to information which suggested Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi — who is in power in the province due the PTI’s support — was not in favour of dissolving the assembly.
“If the PTI is claiming it is not dissolving assemblies due to obstacles from our side, then let me make it clear that there are no obstacles apart from the fact that we are not in favour of the move.”
He further said that the PML-N and the PPP were on the same page when it came to elections in Punjab. “We will fight like allies but the main contest is with the PTI.”
Later in the day, Sanaullah again challenged the PTI to dissolve the assemblies, claiming that the party would be defeated in the subsequent Punjab elections.

Islamabad Airport is in Punjab.

There needs to be a Punjab Police contingent to the perimeter to take delivery. Let the 111 come if they need to.

Nawaz sealed deal with establishment for relief: PTI​

Fawad claims Sharif family ‘managing FIA' and ‘influencing courts'

Rizwan Shehzad

ISLAMABAD: A senior PTI leader on Saturday alleged that PML-N supremo and former premier Nawaz Sharif was given relief in the corruption cases against him because he had struck a “political deal” with the security establishment.

PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry told The Express Tribune that the Sharif family had opted for a “back door deal with the establishment” instead of facing the cases on merit.

He further maintained that the Sharif family had acquired relief as it became part of the “regime-change operation”.

The PTI leadership refers the “regime-change operation” to the time when its chairman Imran Khan was removed from the post of the prime minister through a no-confidence motion by the then united opposition and the incumbent ruling alliance in April this year.

To a question if Nawaz sealed the pact with former army chief Gen (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa as the time he had referred to was before the retirement of the ex-military head, Fawad replied that deals were not that straightforward and there were always grey areas.

The former federal information minister claimed that the Sharif family was “managing the FIA [Federal Investigation Agency]” and “influencing the courts”.

He added that if the Sharif family believed that it was innocent, then it should not influence the courts.

“The cases against the Sharif family are based on solid evidence,” he maintained.
“Laws were amended, witnesses harassed, [and] lawyers changed to give clean chit to the Sharif family in the cases [against it],” Fawad insisted, adding that such “mockery of justice” was at an “unparalleled scale”.

The PTI leader’s remarks came in response to Nawaz’s statement where he commented on an apology issued by a British publication, The Daily Mail, on its "mistake" in an article it had published in 2019.

The PML-N supremo said the apology was proof of the Sharif family and his party’s innocence.

Talking to the media in London, Nawaz claimed that the “false allegations of money laundering, corruption, commission, kickbacks, and misuse of office” were made by the publication against his brother, incumbent Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, on the directives of PTI leaders Imran and Shehzad Akbar.

Nawaz, while referring to the PTI leadership, questioned why those embroiled in corruption from “head to toe” were levelling accusations against his family and the ruling alliance.

In his official statement, Fawad lashed out at Nawaz for escaping the country by lying to the court and said undoubtedly the Sharif family had introduced the culture of “corruption and fraud” in Pakistan.

Fawad claimed that “fugitive Nawaz and his cronies” had looted the country with both hands and escaped the country by lying to the courts.

He added that the PML-N supremo did not have the courage to face the courts.
The former federal information minister maintained that British journalists had already unveiled all the facts related to The Daily Mail issue, adding that no court proceedings were conducted of the case prepared by Shahzad Akbar against PM Shehbaz.

Fawad claimed that the cases against PM Shehbaz and his sons involving Rs24 billion were “ended by managing the FIA.”

He alleged that all illegal and inhuman actions in Pakistan were initiated by PML-N, adding that the practice of using the process of accountability against political opponents was also introduced by the party.

In addition, he claimed that the PML-N had used all immoral and illegal tactics against late former premier Benazir Bhutto but unfortunately, her heirs had now joined the ranks of those who were involved in her character assassination.

“The PTI did not believe in vengeful and vindictive politics,” he said while once again throwing the gauntlet to Nawaz that he should come to Pakistan and face his cases on merit.

He also claimed that Nawaz was not disqualified for taking salary from his son, but for not providing the money trail of properties worth billions in London.
Fawad maintained that Nawaz’s brother, PM Shehbaz, had ruined the country's “fast-thriving economy”.

He chided PM Shehbaz for issuing a message on the International Human Rights Day and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto’s video message about Facebook monetisation.

He said human rights’ record was the worst in the history of Pakistan and the agreement for monetisation of Facebook in the country was signed during the tenure of the PTI government.

Obviously . The establishment will never tolerate one single strong party.
