Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that the recent party members who have defected were never part of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
Talking to journalists outside the accountability court about Monday’s defection of eight party lawmakers from South Punjab on the pretext of making the region into a separate province, Nawaz said that something probably ‘descended’ on those who left the party. He said, “They were never part of the party,” adding that, “their background is also not from the PML-N”.
The former prime minister said: “These were not the people who voted for me in the political parties act in the assembly. They were a part of the 10-15 people who did not vote for me,” he said further.
