He reiterated that the passport of Nawaz Sharif will not be renewed on February 16. The government will make maximum efforts to bring back absconding Nawaz Sharif to Pakistan.

To a question, he replied that the leadership of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is doing nothing but making tall claims on media.
