Nawaz Sharif lauds Shahbaz Sharif for standing with his brother in hard times
Former premier and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif has said that Shehbaz Sharif has shown exemplary bravery and boldness and stood by party's manifesto despite odds.
Speaking during the PML-N's Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting via video link on Wednesday, Nawaz said: "Shehbaz Sharif served the country with honesty and I salute him."
He added that the former Punjab chief minister worked day and night and established power houses to generate electricity in the province.
He highlighted, "I am proud of the PML-N president who stood by his brother in hard times and did not succumb to government's pressure." He said that the treatment being meted out to our children and PML-N leaders by government institutions is shameful and condemnable.
"I cannot live like a slave anymore in my country and have decided to live an honourable life," he remarked. He said, "If people stood against this government, change will become inevitable."
"The credit for Punjab's development goes to Khwaja Asif Shehbaz Sharif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi."
