06 October, 2018
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif Friday condemned the arrest of party president Shehbaz Sharif, terming it ‘regretful and ridiculous’.
According to a statement released by the PML-N, Nawaz said that Shehbaz Sharif served the people of Punjab with dedication and honesty. “This (arrest) is the worst form of political victimization and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government is responsible for it,” he said, and maintained that PTI should not forget that such tactics of victimising the political opponents are of no use. “Whatever they do with their opponents today will haunt them in the future … they should stay prepared for similar treatment,” he said. The PML-N leader was of the view that Shehbaz Sharif’s honesty, dedication and enthusiasm for serving the masses was lauded by even foreign governments, international institutions and the people of Punjab.
