LAHORE - Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif breaks silence over his arrest and the NAB case.
He said the Ashiana case was politically motivated.
Shehbaz Sharif appeared in the Acountability Court on Saturday, a day after being arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in connection with the Ashiana Housing Scheme case.
In his statement, Sharif said he had not committed corruption of even a single penny. “I worked day and night to serve the people,” Sharif said.
Sharif further said that he had saved billions by personally intervening, adding he had saved the province Rs 75 billion in the Orange Line Train project.
Sharif has been accused by NAB of misusing his powers while being the Chief Minister of Punjab in an inquiry pertaining to Punjab Land Development Company (PLDC).
