Lahore, Feb.27 (ANI): Former Pakistan Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has said that President Asif Ali Zardari betrayed him and his brother Shahbaz Khan by enforcing a false decision of disqualifying them from contesting elections.
Addressing a public rally for the first time in Sheikhupura, after the Supreme Courts verdict, Sharif said: We were betrayed not by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), but by President Zardari.
Meanwhile, the PML-N has decided to stage nationwide protest rallies and meetings against the apex courts verdict and imposition of Governors rule in Punjab province.
Sharif termed the judges announcing the verdict as fake.
Shahbaz is still the legal and constitutional chief minister of Punjab as fake judges could not declare him ineligible, The Daily Times quoted Sharif, as saying. (ANI)
