PML-N not to step back from its ‘principled stand’ despite propaganda: Ahsan

LAHORE: Central Information Secretary of Pakistan Muslim Leagu-N Ahsan Iqbal on Friday said that his party will not step back from its principled stand regarding former president Pervez Musharraf’s trial and repeal of 17th amendment despite all the propaganda against the PML-N and Mian Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing a press conference, Ahsan Iqbal said PML-N would not hesitate to go for the extreme step of launching another long march to push for its demands.
“The propaganda was initiated against Muslim League on its demand for holding Musharraf accountable,” he maintained, adding “fifteen years old fictitious stories and dead characters in renewed shape are being presented again.”
To a question, Ahsan Iqbal eluded direct rejection of taking money from the ISI and avoided seeking apology from the nation, saying PML-N has already sought apology for its past mistakes through Charter of Democracy (CoD) in 2006.
Ahsan Iqbal said PML-N can come up with 100 times serious allegations which will be based on facts, but it is not doing so for stability of democracy in the country.
