ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif Tuesday reiterated that he was ousted not on the basis of corruption by Supreme Court, but on the grounds of his UAE iqama.

He said he was disqualified in the Panama Papers case just for not taking salary from his son as nothing could be found against him on account of corruption or financial kickbacks.

“If they could not found anything in Panama case, they should have told the nation clearly that nothing has emerged, instead they disqualified me on the basis of iqama,” the defiant Nawaz Sharif thundered.

The ousted Prime Minister was addressing PML-N's Central General Council after being elected head of the party for four years.

“The key to enter and oust someone from power should be in the hands of the masses. Only one should rule who is elected by the people,” he said.

"I believe in politics of values and not power. I always worked to ensure rule of law and strengthen democratic system. With the same spirit, I and Mohatarma Benazir Bhutto signed a charter of democracy and cooperated with the PPP government after the 2008 elections, avoided moving no confidence motion against it in the AJK Legislative Assembly and bade a farewell to President Asif Ali Zardari," he said.

He said he had suggested a grand national dialogue with an objective to ensure 'democratic rule in the democratic country' and respect for the public mandate as per Constitution of Pakistan, saying "God helps those, who help themselves."

The former prime minister congratulated the party workers and paid tribute to parliamentarians for passage of the Election Reforms Bill 2017 by the Senate and National Assembly, abolishing the amendments incorporated by ‘dictator’ Pervez Musharraf in the Constitution.

He also thanked members of the General Council, who came from across the country for election of PML-N President, for reposing complete confidence on his leadership.

Nawaz Sharif said he always worked to serve the nation with complete sincerity and honesty without any 'greed and selfish motives,' vowing to continue with the same zeal in future. – Samaa/APP
