ISLAMABAD: A secret meeting of three senior PML-N leaders with Shahbaz Sharif on the “request” of a senior representative of the ‘establishment’ has “upset” former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The publication, citing informed sources, said Nawaz was unhappy when he was told that top party leaders Khawaja Asif, Ahsan Iqbal and Rana Tanvir Hussain had met Shahbaz while he was in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on the “request of a senior representative of the establishment”.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Advisor on Accountability and Interior Barrister Shahzad Akbar had also revealed in a recent press briefing that the PML-N president is holding ‘secret’ meetings in jail, but refused to divulge any details.
PML-N sources, however, said that their party delegation had met Shahbaz Sharif with a message for him.
“Before this contact, an effort was made to contact Nawaz Sharif but he refused to entertain those knocking at his door while carrying a message from the establishment,” the report said.
