ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim league Nawaz leader Saad Rafique said on Sunday that the ruling party had the choice to remove the Articles 62 and 63 (Sadiq and Ameen) of the Constitution but it did not, adding that if it had the opposition would have cried the move was aimed at hiding corruption.
The PML-N leaders were addressing a press conference, where he said that the party has faced a lot of allegations, including being called a mafia.
He said that the Articles 62 and 63 turned out to be 58-2B of the Constitution, which was taken out.
Rafique said that the Articles should now be applied to everyone especially in the influential spheres.
â€œIf you send one Sharif home we will bring second, then will bring third and so forth,â€ said Rafique.
While criticizing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan, Rafique said that no new faces are with the rival partyâ€™s leader.
â€œAll the looters and notorious people are flanking you (Imran Khan),â€ said Rafique.
He also said that the PTIâ€™s candidate for PMâ€™s post Sheikh Rasheed alleged that judges of the apex court were offered billions but didnâ€™t accept. Rafique said that someone should ask Rasheed on what basis he passed such comments.
He said that his party will not adopt the politics of hatred towards opponents, adding that eventually the PTI chief will have to approach the PML-N.
