N lawmakers express reservations over Nawaz Sharif's statements

N lawmakers express reservations over Nawaz Sharif's statements

In an interview last week, the three-time prime minister had questioned Pakistan's policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai as he publicly acknowledged that militant groups are active in the country.His comments triggered a major controversy, inviting criticism from all quarters.

"We will beat aliens (undemocratic forces) in this year's general elections and our victory will be massive enough to shun the role of undemocratic forces in country's politics", said the PML-N leader while talking to journalists in Lahore.

It is pertinent to mention here that former deposed PM and PML-N's lifelong leader Nawaz Sharif first used the term "aliens" for "undemocratic forces" he feels were behind his ouster during a rally in Sadiqabad area of Rahim Yar Khan on May 4.

Several PML-N party members? reportedly including Sardar Ashiq Hussain Gopang, Abdul Rahman Kanju and Shafqat Baloch? expressed concern over Sharifs remarks.

Clarifying his predecessor's 26/11 remarks, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday said that Nawaz did not say or imply that the Mumbai attackers were sent from Pakistan deliberately. However, Sharif's party, the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), defended his statement, saying the Indian media had "grossly misinterpreted" it.

ICC consider calling time on pre-match coin toss
In the history of Test cricket which has seen 2303 matches so far, it has been part of the custom. The International Cricket Council is considering scrapping the coin toss in test matches.

Lawmakers said that these recent statements will create problems for the party during the elections.

At this, Shahbaz, who has taken over from Nawaz as the PML-N president following the latter's disqualification, said that "whoever arranged that interview is the biggest enemy of Nawaz Sharif".

The lawmakers also urged Shehbaz Sharif to take charge of party affairs, sources further said.

The meeting was convened to deliberate selection of party candidates in Punjab for the upcoming general elections.
