Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz leader and Leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, Shehbaz Sharif has apologized for his remarks in the National Assembly where he praised the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Earlier, he had credited Nawaz Sharif for having the Sialkot motorway constructed during his tenure as prime minister.
“Since this incident took place at the Sialkot motorway, I think it won’t be inappropriate to say that this motorway was also built under Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s supervision by the PML-N,” Shehbaz had said during his speech at the National Assembly session.
He apologized via Twitter. In his tweet, Shehbaz has written, “Couldn’t properly contextualize my comment during NA speech & it came across as insensitive. I didn’t mean it that way & am sincerely sorry for it. I’m devastated like all of u on this unfortunate incident. Hope Govt now provides security on Sialkot motorway 4 safety of citizens!” he tweeted.
Earlier Shehbaz was targeted on social media and was hardly criticized because of his insensitive comment, crediting the former prime minister instead of focusing on the crime and how to prevent it from happening again.
