Lahore, June 10: PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif said on Friday that the Army's control over the country's foreign policy should end.


Sharif was speaking at a reference held in the memory of Saleem Shehzad under the auspices of South Asian Free Media Association (SAFMA).

The PML-N Chief said those who act against the constitution and the judiciary would not be tolerated.

Referring to the Kargil operation, the PML-N chief said that Musharraf's Corps Commanders along with the Air and Naval were not aware of the operation.

He said the resolve for bringing about a change was only gaining strength with time and added that no effort would be spared for furthering this cause.

Nawaz Sharif said there was nothing wrong with the idea of presenting the Army's budget before the Parliament and that the House Committees should scrutinize the budget for ISI.

“We are not for any institution's disrespect rather we only want to ensure their honour,” he asserted.

He said when all fingers point to someone then the only advisable thing for that someone is to do some introspection. “Had the introspection been done, the incidents like Abbottabad and PNS Mehran could have been averted,” he argued.

The PML-N Chief said that first of all government itself should honour the National Assembly resolution.

“No one would be allowed to play the game of violating the Constitution and law anymore nor would we let anyone kill journalists,” he maintained, adding, another long march would be held if needed.

He said had democracy had been given a chance, there would have been no terrorism in the country.

Nawaz Sharif assured the journalist community he would not relax until Saleem Shahzad's killers were unearthed.
