LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that the prime minister, during his address, has presented all facts before the nation. He said that Premier Nawaz Sharif has open-mindedly announced the setting up of a judicial commission and rejection of this offer would reflect an undemocratic attitude. The chief minister stated that Imran Khan’s undemocratic reaction to the PM’s offer has left many questions unanswered. He added PTI’s demand for the premier’s resignation is unconstitutional and unlawful. Shahbaz said that the masses have given mandate to the PML-N and his party would honour it at any cost. “No one will be allowed to hijack the public mandate”, he added.
