Nawaz will return in few weeks: Maryam

Bahawalpur: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz said on Thursday that former prime minister and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif had started preparations for returning to the country and that he would be back in the country in a few weeks’ time.
Talking to the media in Bahawalpur, she, however, said that she could not give the date of Nawaz’s return unless his ticket was confirmed.
She said, unlike Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, the PML-N did not need anybody’s support.
Reacting to the allegations of political victimization by the PTI, Maryam said the party leaders were reaping what they had sowed. “If they have done anything wrong, they deserve punishment,” she said.
Responding to Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s resignation from the party post, she said she would speak her mind to him and try to address his concerns.
Expressing her grief over the Peshawar mosque blast, PML-N stalwart said it was unfortunate that so many lives were lost in the incident. –Agencies
