LAHORE - Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif affirmed on Friday that he 'fully supports' Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl's (JUI-F) 'Azadi March' against the government.

The former premier appeared before an accountability court in Lahore Chaudhry Sugar Mills case and in an interaction with newsmen said: Our viewpoint is the same as Maulana's viewpoint.

Sharif went a mile more and recalled that Maulana Fazlur Rehman had called for resignations and protest after the 2018 general elections, adding that they [PML-N] convinced him not to take that course.

"I feel [now] that his argument was solid," he said while referring to the resignation calls of JUI-F chief.

Not paying heed to Maulana's call for the march would be a mistake, he warned and said he has already written a letter to his brother Shahbaz Sharif in this regard.
