Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif on Sunday lamented that none of the elected prime ministers has been able to complete their terms in Pakistan.
Speaking to the social worker’s convention, Nawaz Sharif said, “Until now, none of the [elected] prime ministers has been allowed to complete their constitutional term. Every few years, democracy is attacked and martial law is imposed,” he said.
“Again and again, the constitution was violated […] those who created the country were termed traitors, popular leaders were jailed and leaders were made out to be robbers.”
Nawaz once again decried alleged rigging in the 2018 elections, saying that the votes of the public had been “stolen”.
“Tell me, hand on your heart, is this Quaid-i-Azam’s Pakistan?” asked Nawaz.
He said that his speeches had been banned on TV, adding that the world had changed and it was no longer possible to suppress anyone’s voice.
“Social media, despite recently approved rules,” Nawaz said, “is free to quite an extent”.
“It is not possible for them to hide their lies any longer, or to suppress the voice of the common man,” he declared.
