Vastavam web: Hitting out at Pakistan’s judiciary and the military establishment, ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif today said “a few people” cannot be allowed to rule over 200 million people of the country.Delivering a fiery speech at Muridkay, 67-year-old Sharif asked the people to support him in “revolution” he is going to bring about to change the destiny of Pakistan.”Time has come that it has to be decided who will rule this country. A bunch of few cannot or the 200 million people.

Pakistan is not the property of a few people,” Sharif said, referring to the military establishment and the judiciary.”The decision (to depose me) is not yours. If Nawaz Sharif would have been involved in corruption, you would have dragged me out of office yourself,” he told his supporters.Sharif has been targeting the five judges of apex court for forcing him to quit and those in the military establishment who played a role in his ouster.”Pakistan is being embarrassed in the world because of this decision. People across the world and Pakistanis are rejecting the decision.”
