An old video of Pakistan Muslim Nawaz (PML-N) leader bashing former prime minister and PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif has gone viral on social media.
In an old video, Uzma Bukhari called former prime minister Nawaz Sharif an Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent.
“Nawaz is a RAW agent”, she said in an old video and added that the PML-N leader had made a deal to escape accountability.
In her statement today, the PML-N leader clarified that she had given these remarks when she was in Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
“I have already apologized over the remarks against former prime minister before joining Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz in 2013,” she added.
