Nawaz Sharif Bans His Party Members From Meeting Military Leadership
Former Pakistan PM had earlier challenged army leadership’s interference in country’s politics.
Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has banned all individuals from his party from meeting with the military leadership of the country. He recently conveyed that he has barred every member of the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) (PML-N) from holding individual, private or delegation-level meetings with the army. This comes a day after the Pakistan Army made a big disclosure about senior PML-N leader and former Sindh Governor, Mohammad Zubair Umar.
The Pakistan Army had said that Umar had reached out to the Chief of the Army Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa twice in the past few weeks with the aim of discussing political and legal issues related to the former PM and his daughter Maryam Nawaz who have been convicted in two corruption cases. Sharif made his message to his party members public through a tweet that read, “I have directed all my party members and esp senior leaders not to meet any officers of armed forces, not even for private matters!”
