Whoever arranged controversial interview is Nawaz’s biggest enemy: Shehbaz


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif said on Thursday that whoever arranged Nawaz’s recent interview is Nawaz’s biggest enemy.

He said this in response to a question asked by the PML-N MNA, as to who arranged Nawaz Sharif’s recent interview which sparked a national controversy.

According to details, he further said that despite being proud of Nawaz, he will advise him to give comments on sensitive issues after consultation.

Shehbaz also said that democracy is the only route to progress, adding that, the Indian PM Narendra Modi has set a record of atrocities in occupied Kashmir.

According to details, up to four PML-N MNAs from South Punjab were of the opinion that Nawaz’s recent statement on the Mumbai attacks and the government’s role in the Khatam-e-Nabuwwat amendment earlier damaged the reputation of the party.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi also attended the conference, along with some 120 other lawmakers belonging to the party. Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, however, did not attend the meeting, despite being present in the Parliament.

Lawmakers said that these recent statements will create problems for the party during the elections.

Shehbaz, while addressing the participants, said the PML-N completed all its promises and ushered an era of development in its tenure. He added that the party will take their achievements to the electorate during the upcoming general elections.

PM Abbasi had chaired a similar meeting of the party lawmakers on Wednesday, in which, the PM had taken PML-N lawmakers into confidence over the developments after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s statement on the Mumbai attacks.
