Nawaz Sharif Accuses COAS Bajwa, Gen Faiz Of Bringing Imran Khan To Power
Former prime minister and PMLN supreme leader Nawaz Sharif has come out all guns blazing against those who ‘selected’ Imran Khan as PM. Addressing the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) rally in Gujranwala, he said that Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa and DG ISI General Faiz Hameed are responsible for manipulating the general elections 2018 and bringing an ‘incompetent’ party into power.
Sharif added that the COAS and DG ISI will have to answer for installing a government that has brought misery to the people.
Social media users including analysts and journalists have reacted to the PML-N leader’s speech saying that Sharif has set the stage for resistance against the establishment by not mincing words at the PDM’s first power show.
Nawaz Sharif's speech has lit a fire on the first day of the PDMs anti govt drive. Hard to see how there can be going back after this.

This is taking the establishment full-on. All talk of deal-making will fade now, at least for PMLN. Uncharted territory for Pak politics.

Nawaz Sharif delivers a very aggressive speech to Gujranwala jela. Raises the bar.
