In a candid revelation, former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif asserted that his opposition to the Kargil plan led to his ousting from the government in 1999 by General Pervez Musharraf. Sharif, who expressed his desire for better relations with India, made these statements while addressing party aspirants for upcoming polls from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
During the interaction, Sharif questioned the reasons behind his removal from power in 1993 and 1999, emphasizing that his opposition to the Kargil plan was a pivotal factor in his ouster by General Musharraf. He highlighted that subsequent events proved his stance correct.
“We have delivered on every front. During my tenure as PM, two Indian prime ministers visited Pakistan. Modi sahab and Vajpayee sahab had come to Lahore,” Sharif stated, underlining the importance of fostering positive relations with neighboring countries.
Expressing concern over Pakistan’s economic growth compared to its neighbors, Sharif stressed the need to enhance relations with India, Afghanistan, and Iran. He further emphasized the importance of building stronger ties with China.
Reflecting on the economic challenges faced during the government of Imran Khan from 2018 to 2022, Sharif credited the subsequent government led by Shehbaz Sharif for rescuing the country from default.
In a bold move, Sharif reiterated his demand for accountability of former military generals and judges responsible for the ousting of his government in 2017. He asserted that those who brought the country to its current state should be held accountable, emphasizing the importance of transparency and justice.
“We do not want to come into power to roam around in luxury cars, but we want accountability of those who ruined this country and made false cases against us,” Sharif declared, underscoring the need for justice and accountability in the nation’s political landscape.
