LAHORE: As Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif was appointed PML-N’s acting president on Wednesday, Maryam Nawaz claimed that the Sharifs were united. However, the former prime minister’s glum expressions told a different tale altogether.
A PML-N CEC meeting was held on Tuesday in which Shehbaz Sharif was elected the party’s acting president after Nawaz’s disqualification by the decision of the apex court.
As Maryam Nawaz hugged her delighted uncle and tweeted about it, Nawaz Sharif’s expressions during the meeting were noted by all. The former prime minister remained glum and even frowned at times.
Hamza Shehbaz and Maryam Nawaz were both present during the important meeting of the PML-N’s CEC during which Shehbaz was elected as acting president.
Rumours have been doing the rounds ever since the former prime minister was disqualified by the apex court that Shehbaz and Nawaz were jostling for power and were not on the same page.
However, senior PML-N leadership and both Shehbaz, Nawaz have dismissed the claims as mere rhetoric and supported each other publicly.
