LAHORE: Special Assistant to the Punjab Chief Minister for Information and Punjab government’s spokesperson Hasaan Khawar says PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan will “purely be on technical ground of expired visa and should not be confused with his fake love for the country”.
Speaking to media persons after the 6th National Writers Conference at Al-Hamra on Sunday, Mr Khawar said the PML-N’s “Respect to Vote” slogan had turned out to be a hollow promise as the party is now eyeing yet another deal. He said former premier Nawaz Sharif would be treated as per law and his fate would be decided by courts.
He said the Sharif family did not even bother to comment on transfer of billions of rupees into bank accounts of their employees. “Today, for the first time, all state institutions are on the same page.”
In reply to a question, the SACM said changes in the PTI’s administrative structure were part of preparations for the second phase of local government elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.
Claiming that the PTI was currently the most democratic party in the country, Mr Khawar said the party neither followed dynastic politics nor had a kitchen cabinet where a family decided the fate of 220 million people at the breakfast table.
