Changes in PML-N is indicative of Shehbaz not returning to Pakistan: Firdous Awan
ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that changes in Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) were indicative of Shehbaz Sharif not returning to Pakistan.
“If he wanted to return from London he would not even appoint someone as a chowkidar (guard) outside his home. Sharif’s divide these positions within the family. If they have started appointing people outside the family to these positions it indicates this is the first step towards an NRO,” Awan added. Awan said that Sharif’s need to answer questions about their alleged corruption in court.
Firdous Awan further said that Shehbaz Sharif had left for London for medical treatment, however, he had failed to provide any information to the public related to his illness. “We knew from the beginning Shehbaz was doing this to fool people. He knew he would not come back.”
The PML-N has nominated Rana Tanveer to be Shehbaz Sharif’s replacement as the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairman and Khawaja Asif as the parliamentary party leader.
Shehbaz Sharif left for London last month and is said to be receiving medical treatment there. PML-N leader Khawaja Asif speaking to reporters said that Sharif would return to Pakistan and attend the National Assembly session on the budget.
