LAHORE, Oct 03 (DNA): Former interior minister and Pakistan Muslim
League-Nawaz (PML-N) Punjab President Rana Sanaullah Tuesday rubbished
the claim that the matters of the PML-N had been settled with the
“The impression of the settlement of the PML-N’s matters with the
establishment is baseless,” Rana Sanaullah said while addressing a news
conference in Lahore.
“The whole nation is waiting for Nawaz Sharif’s return. Workers from all
over the country will reach Lahore to welcome Nawaz Sharif,” he added.
“Had the ‘Fitnah’ and ‘Fasad’ not been experienced, the China-Pakistan
Economic Corridor (CPEC) would have been completed today,” he stated.
“The vindictive mindset has pushed the country into a quagmire. We will
also start arresting everyone, the country will not progress,” he added.
Rana Sanaullah dispelled the impression of PML-N striking a deal with
the military establishment. “This impression is wrong and baseless,” he
said. “Our legal team has made all the preparations regarding Nawaz
Sharif’s protective bail. He will come back with a protective bail and
surrender to the courts after his reception.”
When asked whether he or the party had received any hint that Nawaz
would be granted protective bail, Rana Sanaullah asserted: “We don’t
believe in such hints.”
He maintained that the PML-N supremo’s case was based on facts, adding:
“We fully believe in Nawaz Sharif’s innocence and since this case holds
no weight, it’s unlikely that we won’t get relief.”
Rana Sanaullah also mentioned how many people had availed relief in the
past and that the party had complete faith in the legal process. “The
entire public is waiting to welcome their leader Nawaz Sharif. He’s
coming to Lahore and will address the public at Minar-i-Pakistan. People
from all walks of life and all over the country will come to Lahore.
They will hear Nawaz live and the media will cover it throughout.”
