ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – The ruling Pakistan Muslime League Nawaz (PML-N) has expelled Senator Nehal Hashmi from the party over his controversial speech. The decision was taken on a report submitted by the disciplinary committee headed by Raja Zaffarul Haq.
On May 28, Hashmi triggered a political storm by threatening the members of the joint investigation team (JIT) and Supreme Court judges of “dire consequences” after their retirement for probing Sharif family in connection with Panama Papers case.
However, the PML-N distanced itself from his outburst and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif sought his resignation from Senate seat and suspended his party membership.
All private TV channels kept running the video throughout the day which drew strong criticism from the social media users and opposition parties in particular.
