 ISLAMABAD: Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that he is not a man who takes or waits for signals from anyone.

Talking to media outside an accountability court here, Sharif said that he believes in the power of nation’s ‘thumbs’ than umpire’s finger.

He was of the view that former president Pervez Musharraf constituted National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to obtain certain results before the elections of 2002.

It is feared that the bureau is being used again in the same way against us, he added.

Sharif further demanded to abolish rules made in martial law eras. “I have commitments with the Constitution and law of this country”.

He said that he is also analyzing the talks being made regarding doctrine.— INP
