Exile deal debate: PML-N leaders shy of face-off on television, says Memon

PML-N leaders tell TV anchors over phone they will not attend any programme where Sharjeel Memon is present.

Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon said on Friday that Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leaders are reluctant to appear on TV talk shows when there is a chance that the debate will cover the exile deal struck by the Sharifs with Pervez Musharraf.

Talking to reporters in his office, Memon said that the leaders of PML-N have told TV anchors over the phone that they would not attend any programme where Sharjeel Memon is present, because he always shows up with copies of the deal signed by Nawaz Sharif.

The PML-N was at first not even willing to accept that there ever was a plea bargain. But, now when the copies of the deal are being shown to the PML-N leaders, they are reluctant to face the fact that “their captain chose to desert the ship instead of facing trials and persecutions” like other party workers.

Its because your too politically immature to be with on television.

Instead of justifying the achievements of the present government such as price hike, energy crises, extortion in Karachi, increase of Bhatta Mafias, land grabbers etc, he makes the public fool by debating the old issues.
