Nawaz Sharif rules out military intervention amidst current political chaos in Pakistan

By Super Admin

New York, Mar.7 (ANI): Former Pakistan Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League (N) chief, Nawaz Sharif has ruled out a military intervention amidst the current political instability and blame game in the country.

In an interview with Time magazine, Sharif said that it was unlikely that the Pak army would try to step-in at this stage.

Sharif said that Zardari regime would be in danger if it continues to derail the democratic institutions in the country.

"Much depends on how Zardari conducts himself as far as democracy is concerned, if he does things to strengthen democratic institutions.

(I) don't think that the present leadership of the army is inclined to step out of its domain. But you can't really handle security by dismissing members of the government and imposing governor's rule," The Dawn quoted Sharif, as saying.

Sharif also rebuked the notion that his party, PML-N, was trying to destabilize Pakistan.

"He has taken a different agenda altogether, an agenda which will take Pakistan further away from democracy.We don't pose a threat to Zardari. All my party is talking about is a democratic Pakistan," Sharif said.

Commenting on the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore earlier this week, Sharif lashed out at the Punjab Government for providing inadequate security cover to the visitors.

He said the attack was due to the political squabble and distractions.

"Some better security arrangements should have been in place. A lot of people were being reshuffled: pushed out, pushed in. They were in the process of removing so many people from the government. When such things take place, security suffers," Sharif added. (ANI)
