KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Ismail has claimed that ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz, congratulated Imran Khan after Supreme Court disqualified the former premier in Panama Papers case.
“We were having meal in a restaurant when Sartaj Aziz came out. He shook hand with all of us and said ‘Imran Khan congratulation to you for your great achievement’,” Imran Ismail asserted.
“This shows rifts among the ranks of PML-N,” Imran Ismail said. He was speaking at SAMAA’s talk-show ‘Agenda 360’.
Meanwhile, Sartaj Aziz, while talking to Samaa, denied Imran Ismail’s assertion.
“Nothing like that took place… I don’t think I used the word ‘congratulation’,” he said, adding that Imran Khan can also confirm it. – Samaa
