Govt to use ‘legal options’ if fugitive Nawaz’s MPC address is aired: Gill


ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill on Saturday said the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) and other legal options will be utilised if “absconding” former premier Nawaz Sharif addresses the multiparty conference and his speech is aired.

“How is this possible that a fugitive carries out political activities and give speeches,” he questioned in a tweet. The Sharif family couldn’t say anything other than lies, he said, adding they are such big liars that they even tell lies about the PML-N supremo’s health.
