Captain Safdar quotes Mian Nawaz's message

Anybody who loves Pakistan would follow Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar quoted Mian Nawaz Sharif as having said on Thursday.

Speaking to the media after meeting his father-in-law at Kot Lakhpat Jail, where the former prime minister is serving a jail term, he said Maulana’s march was against a system that has stopped a batter system from prevailing.

He asked the people to prepare for a fresh election since “Imran Khan was nowhere to be seen.”

Captain Safdar said the PML-N would welcome the participants of the Azadi March in Lahore if Shehbaz Sharif’s health doesn’t allow him to become a part of it.

According to reports, Begum Shamim, Nawaz Sharif’s mother, Junaid Safdar, his grandson, and personal physician of the former prime minister visited him in the Kot Lakhpat jail.

Shehbaz Sharif was unable to join the family members since his backache is said to have intensified.

He was expected to undergo a medical check-up later in the day.

Earlier, the PML-N stalwarts could not evolve a consensus whether the party should join the Azadi March announced by Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman for Oct 27 in a huddle.

However, the party leaders pledged to follow whatever decision former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would take in this regard.

The meeting held in Model Town lasted more than five hours with PML-N president Shahbaz Sharif in the chair.

Prominent among the participants were Raja Zafarul Haq, Khawaja Asif, Rana Tanvir Hussain, Marriyum Auranzeb, Pervaiz Rashid, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, Murtaza Javed Abbasi, retired Gen Abdul Qadir Baloch, Muhammad Zubair, Hanif Abbasi and Pervaiz Malik.
