PML-Q (Pakistan Muslim League Quaid) president Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has alleged that former 3 time prime minister Nawaz Sharif asked him to frame Asif Ali Zardari in a “fake narcotics case”.
The revelation has been mentioned in his book ‘Sach To Hai’ which was launched in Lahore today (Tuesday).
“Zardari in 2011 said to me that he became president because of me.” claimed Shujaat.
“Before Nawaz was sworn in as prime minister for a second time in 1997, Mian Sharif visited me and promised to make Pervez Ellahi the chief minister of Punjab.” However, when Nawaz came to power he appointed his younger brother, Shehbaz Sharif, on the post, said Shujaat reading from an excerpt in his book.
“When Iftikhar Chaudhry was reinstated, I advised Musharraf to settle differences with him and he was ready to, however, their aides did not allow them to do so,” he added as another revelation from the sought after book.
The book is available across Pakistan and encompasses the life, trials and tribulations of the veteran political leader.
