LAHORE: Disgruntled PML-N leader Senator Sirdar Zulfiqar Khosa has said he and other Muslim Leaguers had been defending the Sharif brothers’ “falsehood” about their agreement with Musharraf.

Talking to a private TV channel, Khosa said the Sharifs had gone to Jeddah after making an agreement with retired Gen Pervez Musharraf without taking him into confidence.

“I have no personal issue with Nawaz Sharif. Nawaz has become owner of the country while his younger brother Shahbaz the owner of a province,” he said, adding he could not defend the corruption of the Sharifs.

The former governor further said the Sharif brothers gave a false hope to the people of south Punjab about creating new province for them.

“Shahbaz wants to be the chief minister of united Punjab as the Sharifs had never been in favour of division of the province,” he said.

He said PML-N’s members of parliament and workers were being ignored.

“Now the Sharifs have started listening to their grievances after we raised a voice,” Khosa said.

Another ‘angry’ PML-N stalwart from Sindh, Ghaus Ali Shah, said Nawaz had become “accidental leader” and he liked “flatterers” in the party.
