CSM case against Nawaz Sharif equivalent to political revenge: Ahsan Iqbal


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Secretary-General Ahsan Iqbal said on Friday that the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case has been lodged against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for political revenge.

In a media talk in Lahore, Iqbal affirmed that the hardships will not demoralize the party which is firmly standing in the face of revenge.

Iqbal said the rulers will face consequences of the ongoing injustice. Inflation and unemployment have increased, the economy is destroyed and the government has failed, he said.

PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said it is unfair to bring Nawaz Sharif to court “like this”.

She further added that the rumors of differences between Nawaz and Shehbaz are not true. Nawaz has said that he can leave the entire world but not his brother, she remarked.

Nawaz was produced before an accountability court in Lahore on Friday over money laundering accusations in Chaudhry Sugar Mills reference. Ahsan Iqbal and Marriyum Aurangzeb had gathered outside the court to express solidarity with him.
