Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday said that he would not compromise on the sanctity of vote. Talking outside the accountability court after hearing of Chaudhry Sugar Mills case, Nawaz Sharif said that if they are conspiring to jail those who gave sanctity to vote, then we are not afraid. “This is not a case. These cases are being made against us to take political revenge”, Nawaz Sharif asserted. He further said, we would never compromise on rules. “The sanctity of vote is linked to the country’s security, prosperity and development,” Nawaz Sharif contended.
Nawaz further stated that he was a victim of political revenge for chanting the slogan “sanctity of vote”.
Nawaz Sharif said that he extended full support of his party for Fazl-ur-Rehman’s Azadi march, maintaining that rejecting Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman’s proposal to resign from the assemblies was a wrong move.
