Sharifs holding secret meetings with Indians, claims Gill | The Express Tribune

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication Dr Shahbaz Gill on Sunday alleged that a son of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Quaid and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has held a meeting with “men sent by the Indian establishment” in a London hotel.

“The names [of the men] are also known to the government. Last Tuesday, even Nawaz Sharif himself held a secret meeting at an embassy in London,” Gill said in a statement according to a private TV channel.

He said the “anti-Pakistan propaganda” can longer be sold to PML-N voter or anyone else. “Everyone in the country loves Pakistan Army,” he added.

Referring to yesterday’s PML-N rally in Punjab’s capital, the PM’s aide said that Lahore had rejected the anti-army narrative of Maryam Nawaz and her father.

Taking to Twiiter later in the day, Gill also alleged that Maryam herself met an Indian national in Lahore’s Khokhar Palace.

Shahbaz’s statement echoed the narrative of Prime Minister Imran Khan, who in a recent interview with a private TV channel, had said that Nawaz Sharif was playing a “dangerous game” by targeting Pakistan’s institutions, particularly the army, at the behest of India.

Imran accused the three-time prime minister of creating huge mischief by attacking the armed forces of the country. He also alleged that Sharif could resort to any extent to save his ill-gotten money and escape the accountability process.

“Nawaz Sharif is playing a dangerous game against Pakistan and I am 100% sure that India is supporting him,” PM Imran said. “Why Nawaz Sharif always had a dispute with army chiefs, because he was involved in the corrupt practices and wanted to control them.”

In response to Gill’s statement, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb expressed regret over the narrative being built against her party leaders, saying it would take the country back to the politics of 1985 and would not benefit Pakistan or its democratic setup.

“Those who did not represent the people of Pakistan, those who did not come to power with the votes of the people were now giving certificates of treason to others,” she maintained.

The PML-N leader said that her party would not end the struggle until the people are relieved of people who give reprieve to the mafias in the country.
