LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) leader Chaudhry Shujaat has on Saturday said that he remained with Nawaz Sharif for 12 years and was sure that the former prime minister wouldn’t return to Pakistan, whether his Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) wins the election in NA-120 or not.
Talking to journalists upon his arrival in Lahore from Islamabad, Chaudhry Shujaat was asked if PML-N would win the election in Lahore. He said that it didn’t matter as Nawaz Sharif would not return to Pakistan no matter who won.
“We remained together for 12 years and whenever Nawaz Sharif came to Islamabad, he stayed at our home. As far as I know him, he and his sons won’t return to Pakistan. Instead, he’d prefer having a decision against him in absentia”, he said.
When asked on what grounds was he claiming this, Shujaat said that he’d respond to this some other time.
