SC verdict proves that PPP won 1990 elections too: Sharjeel
20 October, 2012
KARACHI: Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon has said that the Supreme Court verdict had proved that in elections of 1990, Pakistan People's Party (PPP) was a real winner but rigging in those elections caused defeat to the party.
In a statement issued here on Friday, he said that the verdict had also disclosed dishonesty of Mian Nawaz Sharif who sold himself to establishment for monetary gains.
He said: "In this decision, it is also stated that money was provided unconstitutionally to the victory of a certain party and that party was no other party than IJI." He said that Mian Nawaz Sharif was then head of IJI and people came to know that Nawaz Sharif was a thief who for money only sold his faith and he also caused a setback to democracy and insulted the mandate of the masses.
Memon said that his (Nawaz Sharif) act made PPP to face the defeat which at that time was the largest political party and it is also the largest political party of the country as well. He said that as the names of Asad Durrani and Aslam Baig had been mentioned those who provided money to get IJI won the elections, in the same way Nawaz Sharif's name should also be mentioned.
"People are unable to understand why his name has not been taken in this regard. Why he has been given relaxation, who committed a crime against the mandate of the people."
