Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has also reacted to the arrest of opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif. In a statement issued on social media, Nawaz said, “By arresting Shahbaz Sharif today, this puppet system has ratified the APC resolution.”
Nawaz Sharif added that “Shahbaz Sharif had already said that whether he would be inside or outside the jail, all the decisions made in the APC would be implemented.”
The former prime minister warned that “no one should be misled into believing that we can be deceived by such clever tactics.” It may be recalled that NAB has arrested opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif after the Lahore High Court suspended interim bail in a money laundering case.
After the arrest of opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif, PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz also said in an emergency press conference that Shahbaz Sharif was arrested not because of any crime but because of standing with his brother.
