Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nehal Hashmi on Tuesday claimed that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) has made an ‘under the table’ deal with the government to get their candidate elected.

Hashmi made the remarks while speaking to Tribune-24/7 on the show Beyond The News on Tuesday.

He said fielding Aitzaz Ahsan as its candidate for the presidential elections is a ploy by the PPP to divide the opposition’s vote.

The PML-N leader further said that the PPP had shown their true colours in the Senate elections also, where he claimed they worked in connivance with the PTI to defeat the PML-N candidate.

“This is all being done to help the PTI win the presidential election,” he said, adding that all the opposition parties had developed a consensus to field a joint candidate.

Drawing Ahsan into his line of fire he said that, “He has a long history of using inflammatory language towards PML-N leadership”.

“I don’t think he can be considered a reliable candidate for the post of president,” he said.

    The PML-N leaders continuously busy in accusing PPP for fielding their candidate Aitzaz Ahsan for the President office of Pakistan, ignoring the fact they have nominated JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman without any consensus and consultation with the PPP, Maulana recently faced humiliating defeat from both the constituencies he was contesting. Later Fazlur Rehman also announced that he will not celebrate independence day of the country and now he emerged as the most desperate man for President slot because he is afraid of his true face will be exposed for what he served as chairman Kashmir committee and how he become a millionaire. One should accept the reality which is against the wills and wishes of JUI chief as the people of Pakistan are now fed up with these ‘Munafiq Mulla Alliance’. In fact if PML-N is serious in joint opposition then they should withdraw their candidate in favor of PPP’s Aitzaz Ahsan or shut their mouth big mouths.Recommend
