Information Minister Shibli Faraz has said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader and former prime minister Nawaz Sahrif has become another Altaf Hussain, the founder of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) who delivered a fiery speech against state institutions on August 22, 2016.
“No difference remains between Nawaz Sharif and Altaf Hussain. Both have same modus operandi… Nawaz Sharif is exactly doing the same what Altaf Hussain did,” Shibli said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Thursday.
His comments come in response to Nawaz’s addressed to the PML-N’s Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting earlier in the day wherein he had lashed out at the Pakistan Tahereek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, blaming it for destroying the country’s economy and livelihood of the people.
Nawaz also reiterated his claim that his struggle is not against Prime Minister Imran Khan but those who installed the “puppet premier” in the power via rigged elections in 2018.
“Media should also go jails and air speeches of prisoners if they are broadcasting Nawaz Sharif’s speech,” he said.
