Pakistan on damage control mode over Sharif's interview

Shortly after Sharif spoke to the media, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi defended the ousted premier's comments in the National Assembly or lower house of Parliament. He further said Nawaz speaking Modi's language against Pakistan state simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300 billion stashed in his sons companies abroad.Mir Jafar was the commander in Siraj- ud -Daulah's army and he colluded with the East India Company to defeat the Nawab of Bengal in the Battle of Plassey in 1757.

He blamed India for refusing to cooperate during the investigation of the case. I am an elected former prime minister. "The statement by the former premier benefited India and appeared prejudiced towards the state's safety and the interests, and that apparently Sharif is guilty of high treason as well as offences punishable in terms of the Official Secret Act, 1923 for which he deserves to be proceeded in accordance with law", the petitioners said.

The PM informed the National Assembly on May 2 that Fata reforms will be implemented within three weeks.

However, Mr Abbasi's proposal to form the committee was rejected by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) whereas the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement had sought time for consultation with the leadership on the issue.

According to Dawn newspaper, differences within the ruling party surfaced following the issuance of contradictory statements by the Sharif brothers on the issue.

The bureau rejected "the impression of revenge or hurting anyone" saying NAB "does not believe in revenge and (is) determined to eliminate corruption without any discrimination".

India said the gunmen were Pakistani and had arrived on the Mumbai waterfront by rubber boat after crossing the Arabian sea from the Pakistani city of Karachi in a trawler.

The political atmosphere of the country has been going tense with each passing day since May 12, when Sharif said in an interview to an English daily, "Militant organisations are active".

When contacted, Naveed Qamar said they had chose to quit the NA panel as they believed that the committee chairman had summoned the NAB chairman with mala fide intentions.

The PTI Vice Chairman said the Jamiat Uleme-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman also expressed reservations.

The committee is also set to take up the Constitution Amendment Bill that had been tabled by the government past year seeking merger of the tribal areas with KP.

Zia also informed the court that the Hill Metals Establishment incurred a loss of $1.5 million in 2015, but despite this loss, $2.1 million were sent to Nawaz Sharif.
