Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif on Saturday, 17th October 2020 accused the country’s Army Chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa of political interference. According to Sharif, the interference caused his government to topple and brought Imran Khan-led Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf to power following the 2018 elections. He also alleged that the Pakistan military even put pressure on the judiciary.

In a virtual address, Sharif accused General Qamar Javed Bajwa of packing up his government. He said that it worked well, and put the nation and the country at the altar of the army’s wishes. The virtual address was during kickstarting a countrywide protest campaign in Gujranwala in Punjab province.

The rally which is the largest since the 2018 elections, was organized by opposition parties. The organization of the rally was with the aim to oust the ruling government of the country. Nine major opposition parties of Pakistan had last month formed a coalition called the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to stage a countrywide agitation against the Imran Khan government.

Sharif was the prime minister of Pakistan in 2017. He was sacked from his top post by Pakistan’s Supreme Court in 2017 over corruption charges. After getting a sentence for corruption, he came out on bail to seek medical treatment abroad. He has been in London ever since. He often blames the army generals and judges for what he claims are made-up charges against him during his term.

Sharif called for Khan’s resignation and ending the military’s interference in the politics of Pakistan. Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz also addressed the gathering. She criticized the government for bad governance and mismanaging the economy. The attendees of the address also demanded Khan’s resignation.

Sharif has been the prime minister of Pakistan three times. He was first removed by a president in the year 1993 and then by former Prime Minister Pervez Musharraf in 1999. Lastly, he had to leave following the Supreme Court’s order in 2017.

Imran Khan, who assumed power following Sharif’s ouster on an anti-corruption campaign, denies that the Army helped him win. He said that he was not afraid of the opposition’s rally. The prime minister also claims that the rally had the aim of blackmailing him to drop corruption cases against their leaders.
