Neither involved in any corruption nor accept such decisions, says Nawaz Sharif

Nisar dismissed the impression that he had the former PM to opt for the Isb-Lhr motorway for his homecoming rally following his disqualification in the Panama Papers case.

Earlier, the Accountability Court Judge Muhammad Bashir conducted the hearing of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references against Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar in Al-Azizia, Flagship and Avenfield references.

In an impassioned speech addressing the former prime minister, State Minister for Interior Talal Chaudhry can be heard saying in the video: "You revised your decision to take the motorway to go to Lahore".

"Where are those people now", asked Nawaz from a gathering of party leaders and workers.

Later, Nawaz mockingly said that one person had even advised him to take a flight from Rawalpindi to Lahore.

He was hopeful that the differences between Nawaz and Nisar would be resolved soon.

Nisar, in a statement yesterday, clarified that Nawaz's decision to travel to Lahore via the motorway had been made during a meeting of senior party leadership.

Deploring graft proceedings against him, ousted premier Nawaz Sharif on Thursday said the judges, who allegedly pledged their allegiance to the dictators, want to remove him as the ruling party president.

Nisar had said that a majority of the party members had advised taking the motorway to Lahore.

"The decision is on record and news on the Murree meeting has been published as well", the statement said, "The subsequent decision to take the GT Road was not taken on the advice of any politician". Upon being contacted by Nisar, Shahbaz agreed to the idea of entering Lahore via GT Road, it added.
