PLM-N to overcome all hurdles to win upcoming by-elections: Nawaz Sharif
07 October, 2018
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif on Saturday expressed confidence that his party would be able to overcome all hurdles to win upcoming by-elections.
He was chairing a party meeting in the aftermath the arrest of his brother Shehbaz Sharif by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the Ashiana Housing Society scam.
During the meeting, Nawaz heaped praise on his younger brother, saying Shehbaz had worked tirelessly for the people of Punjab during his tenure as the Punjab chief minister. Nawaz reassured the party leadership not to worry as their hands were clean of any corruption.
According to reports, PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz informed the PML-N supremo about the legal aspects of the accountability case against his father – Shebaz Sharif.
Moreover, party leader Raja Zafarul Haq has written a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner over party’s reservations of “pre-poll rigging” in the wake of by-elections scheduled for October 14.
The letter details how Shehbaz’s arrest, allegedly an act of political victimisation, will affect the upcoming by-polls.
