October 2, 2018

LAHORE: Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan on Tuesday opened a new Pandora’s box as he claimed that Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has sorted out matters with establishment.

In an interview with a private news channel, Rana Mashhood said that the establishment regrets that Shehbaz Sharif did not become prime minister.

He remarked that relations with the establishment have improved. “Shehbaz played an integral role in improving the relations.”

Mashhood added that Hamza Shehbaz would be PML-N’s candidate for Punjab Chief Minister. He said, “I’m not talking about any deal. Establishment has always accepted Shehbaz Sharif”.

“Matters aren’t going as planned. If things continue to run in the same fashion, then PML-N will form govt in Punjab in the next two months”, stated Mashhood.

Mashhood was all praise for former Punjab Chief Minister and incumbent PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif. He said, “Shehbaz Sharif has played key role in resolving the matters”. NNI
