“The National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) is not just,” he said, adding that Bhutto should follow normal legal procedures to clear herself of the corruption charges.

Regarding Bhutto’s accusation that he was behind the Karachi blasts, Elahi said it was unfortunate that Bhutto didn’t learn any lesson from her exile and still resorted to same old dirty tricks of accusing opponents.

Bhutto accused me of the Karachi blasts as revenge. She also wrote a letter to the president apprehending that her life was in danger. During negotiations, such accusations must be avoided, as negations and serious allegations cannot go together, he told ARY TV.

“This shows Bhutto is not sincere regarding the talks and only wants to be granted amnesty. Her agenda of weakening and isolating the president and posing herself as his replacement has become clear now,” he said.

About former premier Nawaz Sharif’s re-exile, he said Nawaz opted for a comfortable life in Jeddah and London, adding that party workers had refused to turn up to welcome Sharif on September 10, Elahi said.

Sharif kept denying for seven years that there was a deal and before his return to Pakistan he admitted the existence of such a deal. This provoked his supporters, who refused to come out and welcome him, he added. (ANI)
