The former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif on Friday said that the dollar wasn’t even raised by 10 paisas without permission during their government.

While talking to media at the Accountability Court, Nawaz said, “During our government, there was a balance between the dollar and rupee and our economy was strong and balanced from 2013 to 2017.”

On the sky touching the value of dollar, the ex-premier said, “If they say we used artificial means to stabilise the dollar, then they can do it too.”

“What is the artificial way to maintain the price of the dollar?” he further questioned. “Were there ever such long queues at CNG stations?”

On his brother Shahbaz's imprisonment, Nawaz said, “For what crime has Shehbaz been imprisoned? Someone should ask how accountability is being done.

"NAB should remain the way it is right now if we are suffering then others should too.”Nawaz continued, “NAB should probe into Imran Khan’s helicopter and his family’s assets. Record of our family’s source of income from 1937 is available.”

“We are asked time and again why we went out of the country after 1999. Pervez Musharraf exiled us, we did not go on our own,” he added.

“Shahbaz fought election for the first time from Karachi and only lost by 500 votes to Faisal Vawda and we all know how he won,” he said.
