Joint opposition front against Nawaz proof of his political stature


ISLAMABAD: Joint opposition front against former premier Nawaz Sharif is a testimony to the fact that his political capital and stature was far superior to that of the opposition, said State Minister for Information, Broadcasting, National History and Literary Heritage Marriyum Aurangzeb on Monday.

Talking to a private TV channel, the minister strongly denounced the speculations and rumours regarding Sharif’s visit to Saudi Arabia and categorically stated that no deal or NRO was in the offing.

Marriyum observed that the opposition had done nothing positive during the last four years and they feared that when they would go to the people they would have nothing to tell them except for saying that they had tried to defame and spoil the reputation of the Sharif family.

The minister said that the PML-N was united under the stewardship Nawaz Sharif and all attempts and machinations to split the party had failed to materialise.

Commenting on the imminent general elections, the minister said that the people would hold the proponents of politics of chaos and sit-ins accountable during 2018 elections. She said that the opposition could not do anything accept sit-ins and hurling fabricated allegations.
