PML-N believes in rule of law, independence of judiciary and democracy- JIT report contains bundle of baseless allegations of our opponents: PM Nawaz
PM stated this while presiding over the Parliamentary Party meeting of the ruling PML (N) in Islamabad on Friday. Sharif family has been targeted over its business matters spanning over 62 years with assumptions and allegations. Nawaz Sharif said there is not a single case of corruption or malpractice against Shahbaz Sharif and myself during our tenures in the past. Elements creating political instability and uncertainty are damaging the country. Stock market after touching 54,000 benchmark is now witnessing downward trend due to negative situation created in the country. Number of power projects was launched during this tenure and several have been completed. Economy of the country is progressing and if there would be no negative politics, hopefully we will achieve the growth rate of 6 and 7 percent and even beyond.

Isphanyar Bhandara (Leader, PML-N):
PML-N will contest in Supreme Court despite of having certain reservations on JIT report. The Prime Minister and his family faced media trail with patience during the JIT proceedings but even JIT could not find any evidence of corruption against PM and his family. This fact is beyond understandings that why only PM and his family are held accountable. Other leaders are also accountable as no one is above the law and constitution. JIT report is just a planted story written to affect the popularity of Prime Minister. But after the next elections in 2018 PML-N will once again be in power on the basis of its performance and delivering to the people of the country.
