Will Continue Struggle For Sanctity of Vote: Nawaz Sharif

Former Prime Minister and Ex PML President Mian Nawaz Sharif said that he will continue struggle for the sanctity of vote.
Addressing PML N’s Central Working Committee’s (CWC) session in Lahore, he said that doctrine of necessity was used in the past to justify illegal and unlawful governments.
He said that politicians are a soft target, adding that the sanctity of vote is nowhere to be seen.
He said that his party was the first one to initiate a case against dictators who introduced martial law in the country and lamented that not even a single case was lodged against dictators.
“Where is your vote’s dignity, where is ours?” said Nawaz to the gathering.
He further said that people are afraid of taking action against dictatorial forces.
Nawaz said that it was not easy working under the current situation.
“Was Pakistan made to function under such a system?” He said. “Unfortunately, I do not accept this system,” added the former prime minister.
He further said that people want something else but ‘certain forces’ want something else.
Earlier, Nawaz also expressed displeasure over the verdict of his disqualification from the party presidency, saying it was like a dictatorial decision.
He added that there were no dictators ruling the country at present but the decisions taking place were like the ones made during dictatorships.
However, he said, the entire nation knew what happened with political leaders and parties.
