While talking to 92 News channel, Punjab Chief Minister spokesperson Dr Shehbaz Gill said the drop scene of Maryam Nawaz’ press conference happened within 24 hour. He said it is regrettable that PML-N leaders are still using old tactics and they should be ashamed after denial from accountability judge. Special Assistant of Prime Minister on Accountability Shahzad Akbar said that Maryam Nawaz is trying to blackmail and the current situation seems to be like hijacking. He further said that the statements given by the PML-N leader were not like the politician’s narratives. Prime Minister Imran Khan spokesman Nadeem Afzal Chan, during exclusive talk with 92 News, said that everyone knew how Nawaz Sharif restored his assembly. “PML-N has right to fight its war but accusations is unfair. I don’t think so that judge sahib talked such type of conversations with Nasir Butt. He will see if the PML-N leadership provide any proof for this matter.”
