LAHORE: State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali along with his father and senior PML-N leader from Faisalabad Chaudhry Sher Ali called on Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif here on Monday and discussed their complaints against the rival group led by Rana Sanaullah in the local polls in Faisalabad district.
