LAHORE: Shehbaz Sharif, president of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) on Wednesday said that he has issued show-cause notice to Rana Mashhood for giving controversial statements in a TV interview.
Shehbaz was speaking to media persons outside the accountability court where he had come to visit his brother Nawaz Sharif during Al-Azizia corruption case hearing.
Denouncing the statement of Mashhood, Shehbaz dubbed the remarks as “irresponsible,” and told the media about issuing a show-cause notice to the party member.
Earlier, ousted premier Nawaz Sharif had said that Shehbaz Sharif has taken notice of Rana Mashhood’s recent statement.
Afterwards, the former prime minister quoted a famous verse by Ghalib, “‘?h?lib’ hameñ na chhed ki phir josh-e-ashk se baithe haiñ ham tahayya-e-t?f?ñ kiye hue.”
Nawaz was quick to clarify that he had not referred this verse in the context of Rana Mashhood’s statement, “I was talking about my own state in a general way.”
