ISLAMABAD: Central leader of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Babar Awan Thursday alleged that PML-N President Nawaz Sharif by calling President (Zardari) a traitor had tried to play the same game that led to (the creation of) Bangladesh.

Babar Awan said this at a press conference held hours after Nawaz Sharif appeared before Supreme Court where proceedings of the memogate scandal were initiated as a result of Constitutional petitions submitted by Nawaz Sharif and others.

Commenting on the formation of a body to look into memogate scandal, Awan said Executive was the only institution in the country, which could set up such a commission under the constitution.

Information Minister Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan, Khursheed Shah and Qamar Zaman Kaira were also present at the press conference.

"We will not allow the supremacy of the Parliament to be wiped out," Babar Awan vowed. He, however, added that he believed there was no political personality in the country who could be called a traitor.

He asked Nawaz Sharif if he had filed any petition for indicting Musharraf under Article 6. "What is stopping Sharifs from filing a case of treason against coup detat of October 12, 1999?"

He said it had become clear today as to who wanted disintegration of the country.

'Today a decision was announced without hearing the point of view of the federation," Babar Awa regretted.

Khurshid Shah on the occasion said 'those who don't run away and stay in the country and fight in the democracy can't be intimidated by use of article 6'.

Information Minister Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan alleged that the protocol department of Supreme Court received PML-N leaders.

Babar Awan said the present government raised the national flag in Swat, resolved NFC issue, vacated two cantonments in Balochistan through consensus.
