LONDON – Opposition leader in National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif held press conference in London.

Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the nexus between Prime Minister Imran Khan and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) froze his assets.

Addressing a press conference in London, the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) president mentioned that the alliance of NAB-Imran Niazi openly surfaced. “An alliance between Imran Niazi and NAB exists and they have frozen me and my families’ assets,” he added.

Commenting on the key progress of the Ashiyana-i-Iqbal Housing Scheme in the Supreme Court, Shehbaz Sharif also mentioned that the Niazi-NAB nexus had once more been dealt a defeat. “My innocence was also testified by the top court,” he said.

“Naeem Bukhari was representing the government in Ashiana case against me and had to back off as the claims against me were frivolous,” the PMl-N president maintained. He claimed that the government was responsible for the division among the political brass of the country.

Shahbaz Sharif said that all the assets which they ordered to be frozen yesterday, all the assets are declared. “They also could not prove a single corruption case against me. If they have any proof, should be present before the court. How they can freeze my all declared assets,” he said.

The PML-N president claimed that they lured bureaucrats to make approver against him. He further raised reservations over the political situation of the country. “The in-house change is necessary for the progress of country because Imran Khan Niazi has become burden on this country now,” he added.

“Under Nawaz Sharif’s leadership, from 2014-2018, despite tough challenges, the credit for all development projects completed goes to him and his team.”
