War against state institutions will be dealt with: Dr Asim

The war against state institutions will be dealt with, Dr Asim Hussain — leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) — said Friday morning as he flew back to the country from Dubai.
The political belief some of the nation’s strategic players hold — that they can upend the game if they are ousted from it — will not be allowed to continue, Hussain said, adding that the Parliament will decide whether to exercise the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) in the cases of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
The ex-petroleum adviser added that the Sharif brothers — including Chief Minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif — are off to Saudi Arabia to ask forgiveness for their “sins”.
Earlier, on Thursday, Hussain’s name was removed from the Exit Control List (ECL) by the interior ministry, which disclosed the decision through a notification.
Hussain was in London since November after the Supreme Court of Pakistan granted him permission to travel. Sources had claimed then that he was in Dubai but will return soon.
