KARACHI: (HRNW) Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar on Sunday termed the opposition’s public gathering under the banner of PDM as a criminal act and grave violation of coronavirus SOPs.
Addressing a presser alongside Federal Ports and Shipping Minister Ali Zaidi, he said that Nawaz Sharif was a convict and a prisoner when he left the country to seek medical treatment. “He is now hiding in London and launching attacks on national institutes.”
He asked as to why Nawaz did not call for supremacy of law when he came to power using General Jillani and ruled Punjab using General Ziaul Haq.
“Nawaz Sharif held protest across the province after being convicted but even two months before, his emissaries were seeking NROs,” the federal minister said adding that he was himself present during meeting where NROs were sought for the PML-N leadership.
