"Shahbaz and Nawaz Sharif claim that their politics is based on principles," commented Raja Riaz while talking. Former Mehran Bank president Younis Habib's statement in the Supreme Court, he said, had exposed the 'principles' they stood for. Riaz quoted Habib as saying that Shahbaz had been given Rs2.5 million while Nawaz had received Rs3.5 million from the army to topple the PPP-led government in 1990. The opposition leader said that the PPP had tried to tell the public that PML-N was a "party of dictators" that had always gained power with the support of generals.
