“Nawaz had set out along with thousands for the freedom of judiciary,” he added.

Rafique lamented, “We thought we would be given protection but look where we have been made to stand now.”

“A man who was not elected has been appointed prime minister,” he further said and added that “this man who has been made premier was hiding at that time”.

“It has been 22 days to ‘Naya Pakistan’ but nothing concrete has been done so far,” the PML-N leader added.

“For Pakistan’s survival, Nawaz will have to be freed from jail,” he added.

“Pakistan should not be taken towards anarchy and people should be granted their rights,” the PML-N leader stressed.
