LONDON: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz has responded to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) criticism on the appointment of Mohsin Naqvi as caretaker Punjab Chief Minister (CM).
Talking to journalists in London, the PML-N senior vice president said that if Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has objections to appointment of Mohsin Naqvi, then it should nominate Farah Khan aka Farah Gogi for caretaker Punjab CM slot.
Maryam Nawaz sarcastically said that Farah Gogi has more experience in running Punjab.
Meanwhile, former premier and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif criticised Imran Khan and said that the PTI Chairman left no stone unturned to destroy Pakistan. “Each Pakistani has responsibility to get rid of Imran Khan”, he added.
A day earlier, Mohsin Naqvi took oath as the caretaker Punjab chief minister (CM) after nomination from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
The chief election commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja held the key meeting of the ECP senior officials today to decide on the name for the caretaker Punjab chief minister.
The PTI-PML-Q alliance had suggested Naveed Akram Cheema and Ahmed Nawaz Sukhera’s names for the caretaker CM’s slot, whereas, the opposition tabled the names of Mohsin Naqvi and Ahad Cheema.
The parliamentary committee comprises of the government and the opposition members, failed to reach a consensus on the name for the caretaker Punjab chief minister slot on Friday.
