During a 3-hour meeting, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references, country’s political situation and challenges being faced by Pakistan were discussed while it was also decided that Nawaz Sharif will continue serving as PML-N chairman.
Referring to the corruption cases against Sharif family, former PM said that he didn’t get justice and whatever is happening in the accountability court, is a conspiracy against him. We only demand a fair trial, he added.
He warned that any step to harm democratic system in the country will be dealt sternly. He revealed that propaganda is being carried out through media houses against them. Sharif further directed to complete development project at earliest and to fully participate in 2018 general elections.
