LAHORE: Former chief minister of Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif, has said that massive horse-trading has started in Punjab after imposition of governor rule.
In a chat with senior journalists here on Wednesday, he said that the disquification verdict was given by the court with a willingness of President Asif Ali Zardari.
“Under present circumstance, even six months are a lot for the President,” he said.
PML-N president said: “He and Mian Nawaz Sharif has never talked about mid-term elections.”
“I had never heard till 1960s that the high court judges would take bribe,” he said, adding that situation is different now. He assured that he would unconditionally stick to the charter of democracy (CoD).
The former chief minister said that it would be destructive for the country if army tried to intervene in present circumstances. “We can reach an understanding on government matters but cannot compromise on agreements,” he added.
He said that how could I trust the government after it had already deviated from the previous promises.
Shahbaz said the only solution of present crises could be found in the reinstatement of deposed chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. “I have seen Justice Chaudhry only in newspapers and TV channels,” he added.
