Lahore, Dec 26: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif has said that he will not go for any personal vendetta against President Pervez Musharraf as his agenda is to uplift the country.
"Musharraf wreaked a horrible personal vendetta upon me after October 12, 1999. I was kept in confinement in Attock Fort for 14 months. I was even kept handcuffed in the plane," Sharif said. "But I will not take any personal revenge against him despite this victimisation," he told a public meeting in Rahim Yar Khan. "The sovereignty and integrity of the country and the restoration of the judiciary are my top priorities," Sharif said. He vowed to regain the lost glory of the country if voted to power so that the country"s prestige could be restored in the comity of nations. Musharraf has made the country a laughing stock in the comity of nations, Sharif claimed.
The rulers had mortgaged the integrity of the country to perpetuate their rule, he alleged. "I will generate more opportunities for employment after coming to power," the Daily Times quoted Sharif, as saying.
"'Mera ghar scheme" will be launched again so that homeless people may get shelter to live in," he added.
