Nawaz Sharif claims 'army generals' had also conspired against PML-N govt. in the past

Lahore, Nov. 10 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif has blamed 'army generals' for conspiring against his elected government in the past, claiming that "gunny bags full of money were brought in Punjab to topple his government".

Sharif also dismissed allegations of receiving money from former Mehran Bank head Younis Habib, a charge leveled against him in the Mehrangate case.

"Had I received money and had he been kind enough to us, my government would have not have fired him from his post," The Express Tribune quoted Sharif, as saying.

Commenting on the Supreme Court's verdict in the case and the possible investigation by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) against him, Nawaz said he would accept the probe despite the fact that the agency reports to Interior Minister Rehman Malik. (ANI)
