ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party leader Syed Khursheed Shah has said that he does not see PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif returning to Pakistan in October.
Speaking with the media on Saturday regarding Nawaz’s homecoming, Shah said, “Nawaz Sharif has no plan to come [to Pakistan] right now. I don’t think so.”
The PPP leader added, “His health is not good, he might not come.”
When the host cited Shehbaz’s recent statement, the former water minister asserted, “Indeed, he (Shehbaz) might have said so but I say that he is not well and even at the last moment, he can get unwell.”
Former Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Saturday declared the anticipated date for the return of the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif to Pakistan.
“We engaged in discussions with the top echelons of our party, and in accordance with our deliberations, our leader, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, is set to make his return to Pakistan in October,” he told the press in London.
Nawaz Sharif stood alongside Shehbaz during the announcement.
Shehbaz refrained from providing a specific date for Nawaz’s return. Nonetheless, according to sources cited by Geo News, the elder Sharif is anticipated to arrive on October 15.
Speaking to the media in London, Shahbaz Sharif explained that the verdict in the Avenfield case against Nawaz Sharif was based on ill intention.
During the media interaction, Shahbaz Sharif highlighted the enduring presence of Nawaz Sharif’s name in the Panama Papers case, asserting that his name was implicated in a conspiracy.
