Nawaz Sharif coming back soon, claims Maryam


Will speak to Khaqan to address his concerns

Amraiz Khan

Pakistan Muslim League-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz said on Thursday that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif will return home soon but she could not give an exact date in this regard unless his ticket was confirmed.

She said, unlike Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, the PML-N did not need anybody’s support. Reacting to the allegations of political victimization by the PTI, Maryam said the party leaders were reaping what they had sowed. “If they have done anything wrong, they deserve punishment,” she said.

Regarding Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s resignation from the party post, she said she would speak her mind to him and try to address his concerns. Expressing her grief over the Peshawar mosque blast, PML-N stalwart said it was unfortunate that so many lives were lost in the incident. Maryam also hit out at the last PTI government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, saying it failed to build a single forensic lab during its 10-year rule in the province. “The result is even today the law-enforcement agencies have to rely on the forensic lab of Lahore,” she said.

She said it was Imran who had called Taliban ‘friends’.
