ISLAMABAD: Nawaz Sharif will fly back to Pakistan next week and attend the next hearing of the Islamabad Accountability Court, a prominent Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) said.
“Till that time, he will stay in Saudi Arabia,” the PML-N stalwart, who is privy to the former premier’s programme, told The News on condition of anonymity.
He said that Nawaz Sharif was staying in Saudi Arabia to spend time with his mother. He said that she was shifted to Jeddah due to the absence of all of the members of his family from Pakistan as they have to be with ailing Begum Kulsoom in London.
The PML-N leader said the elderly lady went to Jeddah so that Hussain’s wife might look her after there. He said Nawaz Sharif’s departure to London depended on the health of Begum Kulsoom, who has again been hospitalised.
To a question, he said that all the speculations about the PML-N would instantly evaporate after the ex-premier’s return to Pakistan. He said that in his absence from the homeland, such rumours had been generated in the prevailing political scenario. “Nobody can control the flight of imagination of some.”
The PML-N leader said although there was a lot of gossiping going on about his party’s unity, at no stage has any significant number of its federal or provincial legislators had come out in the open to express their disagreement over Nawaz Sharif’s leadership. Even those speaking such language accept him as their leader.
