Extremists will take the advantage of political chaos in Pakistan:Nawaz Shareef
LAHORE:Opposition leader Nawaz Shareef warned in an interview on Friday that political chaos could embolden extremist militants threatening nuclear armed Pakistan,an his supporters battled police following a court ruling barring him from election office.
In his first Interview since the crises broke,sharef said the situation could deteriorate to the point that it undermines Pakistan,s efforts against terrorism and major economic problems.
'There are a lot of forces-the militants,the extremists-they all are there to take advantage,'Sharif told Media at his villa near the eastern city of Lahore.'I think we are heading for some sort of unfortunate situation.'
The government has accused Sharif,a two-time prime minister widely considered the country,s most popular politicians,of fomenting'open rebellion'.
Sharif has called for police in Punjab to disobey orders from the governor,a Zardari loyalist who has taken emergency control of the province for two months.
Sharif accused Zardari of orchestrating the crises in cahoots with senior judges in order to prevent any reopening of recently shelved corruption cases that saw him jailed for years under former President Parvez Musharraf.
Sharif has urged his supporters to join mass rallies planned mid-March by Pakistan Lawyers,who protests in defence of Chaudhry undermine Musharraf,s long rule.
