'Tell nation why you fled country,' Babar asks Sharif brothers

June 24, 2011 - Islamabad

Former Pakistan Law Minister Babar Awan has asked the Sharif brothers, the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and Punjab province's Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, to tell why they fled the country twice, saying the state is like a mother, and every sincere son cannot leave his mother alone in a critical situation.

Babar said the PML-N top brass would again take off to a foreign country in the event of a devastating defeat in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab elections.

He said that unlike the Sharif brothers, the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leadership would not leave the country in any untoward situation, as it was quite popular among the masses for sacrificing for the cause of the country.

Awan also said that the PPP was determined to respond to any decree given by "Maulvi" Nawaz Sharif.

"The political environment is quite sound in Gilgit-Baltistan, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, but the Lahore thrown is uneasy for which the Sharifs have constituted a bullets-and-abuses squad for giving a flurry of decrees (against the ruling PPP)," The Daily Times quoted him, as saying.
