Nawaz has shared dharna strategy with son Hassan, claims Safdar


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Captain (r) Safdar on Friday claimed that party supremo Nawaz Sharif has shared the strategy for Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur’s upcoming dharna with his son Hassan Nawaz.

Speaking to the media, the son-in-law of the former premier said that the latter had written a letter to his son in London, informing him about the strategy for the upcoming anti-government protests.

However, the party has officially stated that Nawaz had informed his younger brother, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, about the future strategy of the party.

Captain (r) Safdar’s statements further fuel speculations regarding a rift between the Sharif brothers. On Thursday, reports surfaced that Shehbaz had criticised his elder brother for not paying heed to his advice on multiple occasions during the meeting of party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) on Wednesday.
