Maryam Nawaz has dismissed media reports claiming rift in the ruling Sharif family, saying there was no disagreement with MNA Hamza Shahbaz and he “is my younger brother”.
“Even after his disqualification from the premiership, the entire party is united and stands behind Nawaz Sharif’s leadership,” Maryam said while talking to reporters in Lahore on Monday.
Maryam went on to say that she had been hearing the “news of differences in the family for the last 30 years”.
When opposition parties have nothing to say, they start claiming differences in the Sharif family, she added. “People who talk about rift in the family will not be able to see it happen… and Hamza Shahbaz is my younger brother,” Maryam said. Earlier in the day, she visited NA-120 constituency and expressed her concerns over the PML-N declining vote graph in the recent by-polls.
