World powers using puppets to hurt Nawaz Sharif: Saad Rafique


KARACHI, June 29 (TNS): Railways Minister Saad Rafique on Thursday said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is being punished for turningPakistan into an atomic power in 1999.

In a message on Twitter, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader said world powers, through their ‘puppets’ Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf and former Chief Justice of Pakistan Irshad Hussain, were behind the premier’s dismissal then.

This time around there is a conspiracy to punish Nawaz Sharif over his economic turnaround of the country with regard to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, he said, adding that this is an old game of the world powers but the players are new.

He urged the public to recognize the puppets working againstPakistan’s development for their personal interests.
