ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif has apologised for his remarks given during his NA speech on Lahore motorway gang-rape case.

“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.

His remarks were slammed on social media, the users criticised the former Punjab chief minister for claiming credit for building the motorway instead of focusing on the crime and how to prevent it from happening again.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Shehbaz said he was sincerely sorry for his remarks that came across as insensitive.

“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.
