LAHORE (92 News) – After detentions of PML-N workers outside accountability court in Islamabad, Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif strongly condemned the arrest of PML-N workers including women.

“Detention of party workers among women is a proof of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s dictatorial mindset,” he mentioned.

The opposition leader in National Assembly (NA) said that the arrests of peaceful workers show Imran Khan’s fear. He expressed his resolve to fight against these domineering and fascist tactics, and continue to struggle for people’s rights.
