Govt wants to arrest Shehbaz as GB polls near, claims Marriyum

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Friday said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is imposed on Pakistan and the incumbent government wants to arrest Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif as Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) elections are nearing.

The PML-N leader talked to media and said the inefficient and corrupt regime wants to rig the polls and the Results Transmission System (RTS) of 2018 is still being used. Why has the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman failed to hold accountable the ringleader of Malam Jabba, Billion Tree Tsunami and flour scandals? she asked.

“Why does PM Imran want to get Shehbaz arrested by the anti-corruption watchdog? The law was misused for personal benefits. The applications filed against the PML-N president are based on chicanery,” the PML-N spokesperson remarked.

“A 58-volume reference was filed against the opposition leader and statements of 110 witnesses were recorded but there was not a single word against Shehbaz. The PML-N president was imprisoned by the NAB for 60 days and a reference has been lodged against him. Why is it necessary now to arrest him?” she asked.

Marriyum also affirmed that Shehbaz will follow every decision of the All Parties Conference (APC).
