“Those who are supporting the dictatorship directly or indirectly will face public wrath,” Sharif warned in an interview to The Nation from Madina.

Pointing out that free and fair elections were not possible under the present Musharraf regime, he blamed the government for the prevailing political crises in the country, adding that it would cause their ultimate death.

He further accused the government of using millions of rupees from public exchequer for their celebrations.

Commenting on his return in September, Sharif said he returned home while putting aside all the fears and threats of dire consequences.

“As far as the question that I wilfully accepted exile rather than being sent to jail is concerned, I will tell the apex court on October 17. The regime is flouting the court orders and had no regard for the Constitution and law, but it is difficult to stop me and 160 million population of the country from getting rid of dictatorship. If had to fly back to Saudi Arabia then why I came back? I returned on the directions of apex court,” he said.

Advocating ‘forceful street movement’ against the military regime, Sharif said it was essential for the ouster of dictatorship from the country, and hoped that the masses would protest against growing inflation and un-employment. (ANI)
