Maryam Nawaz - Shahbaz Sharif meeting inside tale

LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday held an important meeting with Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif after six months, sources said, where MNA Hamza Shehbaz was also in presence.

The meeting came after Shehbaz's meeting with PML-N leaders, Chaudhry Nisar, Khawaja Asif and Saad Rafique, sources said.

Maryam was called after the Punjab CM's meeting with senior party leaders, where she was apprised of all the circumstances.

Sources said members of the Sharif family held discussion on running political affairs in the absence of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

The Punjab CM advised the former first daughter that politics of confrontation would do no good and hence no statements should be issued against the institutions, they said.

Sources also described Hamza's inclusion in the meeting as an effort to end the "cold war" between the two cousins.

It is pertinent to mention here that MNA Hamza Shehbaz was to campaign for his party in the much-hyped NA-120 by-election. He, however, went abroad all of a sudden.
