'Only the people should kick out those they vote into power,' Nawaz says in Jhelum


Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif's procession entered its second day on the streets, with the PML-N leader resuming a long road trip back to his hometown, Lahore, via the Grand Trunk (GT) Road on Thursday after an overnight stay in Rawalpindi.

His convoy reached Jhelum at around 5pm today, and the former prime minister arrived at the venue for his speech a little before 6pm. He was pictured conversing with senior PML-N leader Pervaiz Rashid on stage ahead of his address.

Later, while addressing the crowd amidst chants of "wazir-i-azam Nawaz Sharif" (prime minister Nawaz Sharif), the deposed premier reminded the Jhelum crowd of promises he had made in 2013.

"The country was drowning in darkness and the economy was on the verge of collapse," he said. "Industries were shutting down and there was no electricity."

"I told you that I will sacrifice my life but we will take this country forward," he said. "Had I not said that?" he asked. "Is the darkness not receding from our cities once again?"

"I promised you that we will bring peace to Pakistan; have we not brought peace back to the country?" he asked. "Karachi was on the precipice of chaos; look at it now. We brought the lights back to the city. There was dissent in Balochistan, but we brought the parties together and stabilised the province so it could become peaceful," he continued.

"My government is gone now. Five judges sent me packing in one minute despite the votes of millions of people. Is this not an insult to the millions who voted for me?"

"Five 'respectable' judges, with one stroke of the pen, sent your prime minister packing. Can you bear this insult?"

"And for what [was I deposed]? Was I implicated in any corruption? Even those judges know that I was not involved in any corruption."

"You should ask why they removed your leader," he added. "This country and the people of Jhelum should ask why they did this."

"These hands are clean! My heart is clean and full of love for this country!" Nawaz Sharif told his followers. "Why did you remove me? Why? I want to ask you: why did you depose me when I am not corrupt?"

"Was I removed for taking Pakistan forward? Because I brought CPEC and ended load-shedding? Because the youth were getting jobs?"

"I do not care for myself, but I cared deeply for the youth of this country. I feared deeply for their feature, and their future was going to be bright [with me]," he continued.

"O youth of Pakistan, do not lose heart! Do not be deterred! Our prayers are with you; Nawaz Sharif's prayers are with you!" he said. "Together, we will do something about this state of affairs."

"For 70 years, no prime minister has been allowed to complete his tenure. This is not an insult of your prime ministers, but of the 200 million people of Pakistan. Some dictator and some judge comes along and rips up your ballot paper and hands it back to you."

"Are you okay with being insulted like this? Tell me, are you okay with this?" he asked the crowd.

"You sent me to Islamabad, and now they [the Supreme Court] have sent me back home," he continued.

"I do not want you to install me as prime minister again. My self respect is very dear to me. I have no intention of taking power again; but I do want to do something about your future," he said.

"Is there any law to tackle dictators in this country?" he asked the crowd. "They [the dictators] break the Constitution and the law and then the judges give them legitimacy. The judges tell them 'you did well by sending Nawaz Sharif home'," he alleged.

"What will you answer to your God? What will you answer to this nation? The people want answers to all the these questions [that I am asking]," Nawaz said.

"The people will demand answers from all the dictators and the people who have not let this country run," Nawaz said.

"Tell me, will you hold them accountable?" he asked his followers. "Will you help take this country forward?"

"We need to ensure that whoever you vote into power, only you have the power to kick them out."

"I have come to you to get this country back on track; to give the people's mandate some respect."

"Will you be with me in changing the fate of this country?" he continued.

"My agenda will soon be brought to you, and I want the people of Jhelum to be with Nawaz Sharif," he concluded.
