Maryam Nawaz responds over reports of secret deal with certain quarters
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Saturdayresponds over reports of deal with certain quarters.
She rejected the possibility of a deal with certain quarters for party chief’s clemency.
“We are not in contact with anyone and Nawaz would not have been in jail if we were open for a deal,” Maryam said in a brief discussion with journalists. “People like Imran Khan can fulfil the demands for a deal but Nawaz and the party can’t backstab democracy and break the trust of people.”
The PML-N leader said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has to take the military leadership with him to Washington because the entire international community is aware of the fact that he is ‘selected’.
Meanwhile, an Accountability Court dismissed the National Accountability Bureau plea against Maryam in the Avenfield reference. Earlier this month, the court’s judge Mohammad Bashir issued summons for Maryam Nawaz as the NAB claimed that the trust deeds produced by her in the case were bogus.
The court dismissed the plea, declaring it inadmissible for hearing.
