JATI UMRA: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif called on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday and discussed the current political situation of the country.
In the meeting here, both Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders discussed the contemporary situation of ongoing politics among other matters.
In a statement, CM Punjab Shehbaz said that the faces of those levelling baseless allegations have been exposed.
“Niazi is the captain of liars,” remarked Shehbaz Sharif.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has displayed worst kind of performance in the province, said the CM Punjab.
He further said that any sane person will not give a vote to those doing negative politics in the next elections.
On February 22, sources said senior party leaders at a high-level PML-N meeting held at Punjab House recommended to make Shehbaz the president as he is a non-controversial and influential person.
Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz is likely to be elected the president of PML-N after Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court.
The apex court of Pakistan had announced its verdict on petitions challenging the Elections Act 2017, ruling that a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63 cannot serve as the head of a political party.
The decision by the three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar is considered another blow to the ruling PML-N as Nawaz Sharif will no longer remain the party’s president. As a result of the verdict, all decisions taken by Nawaz Sharif as PML-N’s president stand null and void.
