Nawaz’s commitment to Pakistan unquestionable: Shehbaz on Zardari’s jibe at PML-N supremo

PPP co-chairman had implied earlier that Nawaz had no stake in Pakistan

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif has said that Pakistan People’s Party co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s statement about PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif was ‘unfortunate’ and that the latter’s commitment to Pakistan was ‘unquestionable’.

In a tweet today, the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly expressed reservations about PPP co-Chairman Zardari’s statement about Nawaz Sharif and underscored Nawaz Sharif’s commitment to Pakistan.

He added, “Zardari sahib knows the conditions in which MNS went abroad.”

The PML-N leader further said that such remarks should be avoided and “we should work for greater good of country”.

The tweet came days after PPP co-Chairman Asif Zardari commented, in reference to Nawaz Sharif, that the person who was not ready to ‘breath his last in Pakistan’ did not have a stake in the country.

The PPP leader was speaking at a ceremony at Bilawal House in Lahore to honour party workers, and had stated that they all belonged to the land and would meet their ends here.

The remarks from both sides also follow the recent by-polls in Lahore’s NA-133, wherein PML-N’s Shaista Pervaiz Malik emerged victorious against PPP’s Chaudhry Aslam Gill with a margin of roughly 14,000 votes.

The PPP, however, managed to increase its vote bank, with its candidate receiving 40 percent of the total votes as compared to the meagre five percent in the 2018 general elections.
