Awan says Nawaz will soon repent his ‘antics’

ISLAMABAD  - Vice President PPP and former Law Minister Senator Dr Babar Awan on Wednesday said the founder of military courts, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has a long history of showing repentence over his ‘antics’.
‘Very soon, he would be disassociating himself from a string of applications, he had been moving before the judicial fora’, he said while talking to media in the Supreme Court building.
Babar Awan said that Nawaz had signed an agreement with a dictator for getting a safe passage to flee the country and avoid criminal cases. ‘But now Nawaz claims that he has nothing to do with the agreement’, he added. Babar said that the present Parliament for the first time functioned in the most efficient way and accorded due status to everyone.  ‘Where were those champions of democracy when a democratically elected President Rafique Tarar was working under the Chief Executive’, he said. ‘People criticising President Asif Ali Zardari, should tell the nation from whom they had taken oaths for the offices of Federal Ministers’, he added.
He said PPP is a party working for stable Federation and that made it to succeed in Sindh, Balochistan, Punjab and KPK and the coalition governments in three provinces had been functioning successfully. ‘Only the Takht-e-Lahore has complaints about the system.
The people advising PPP to respect judiciary, had attacked the judiciary themselves’, he added.
He said the whole nation wanted to know facts about a meeting between Sartaj Aziz and Mansoor Ejaz.
