Spokesperson Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Marryium Aurangzeb has said that opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif was arrested on the orders of Imran Khan.
Addressing media in Lahore, she said the arrest of Shehbaz Sharif is an example of retaliation of government after the All Parties Conference APC.
She said that the opposition leader was arrested on the orders of the Prime Minister.
She said that even today NAB could not prove corruption of a single penny against Shehbaz Sharif but we accept the decision of the court. We are not afraid of arrest.
Marryium Aurangzeb said that we are not afraid, because our leader is Nawaz Sharif. After the arrest of Shahbaz Sharif, PML-N will look at its future plans.
“Since the last two years, the public has been witness to this spectacle of the NAB trying to subdue emerging voices by using corruption and various other cases.
“The 58-volume document doesn’t have Shehbaz Sharif’s name anywhere but just like the general elections of 2018, it has been decided to rig the upcoming Gilgit-Baltistan polls,” she added.
“Nobody is asking the people who have assets beyond means. I would like to convey this to the PML-N supporters that your leadership is valiant and is facing all odds in the face of adversity,” Aurangzeb added.
Earlier leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday after the Lahore High Court rejects his interim bail in a money laundering case.
A large number of PML-N workers, including women, who were at the court to support the former chief minister of Punjab, raised chants against the anti-graft watchdog and the incumbent PTI-led government.
Shortly after the arrest, a scuffle broke out between the security personnel and the PMLN’s supporters.
