Deposed PM Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz has refuted a media report that there were disagreements within the Sharif family.

Responding to a report filed by a news outlet that Nawaz had dissociated his nephew Hamza Shehbaz from the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) campaign for the NA-120 by-election, Maryam tweeted:

Why official protocol for criminal Maryam Nawaz, asks Imran

It was claimed in the report that during a party meeting, it was suggested that Hamza should head the election campaign for Nawaz’s wife Kulsoom Nawaz for the seat left vacant after her husband’s disqualification. However, Nawaz turned down that suggestion and handed over the responsibility to Commerce Minister Pervaiz Malik.

A PML-N spokesperson, however, clarified that Malik had been chosen for the task because he was the party’s president in Lahore and there were no disagreements within the family.

    Funny that the PMLN candidate for NA120 is not in the meeting. Wonder if the candidate wins NA120 if she will also delegate her MNA duties to others while she vacations/looks after property empire in London?Recommend

    “bite the dust” means “be killed”. So basically she is admitting that they are a mafia who assassinates their opponents. Recommend
