Maryam asks Zardari to guarantee safety of Nawaz on return to Pakistan

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that Nawaz Sharif is unwell and his life could be in danger if he returns to Pakistan.

Responding to PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s demand of Nawaz Sharif returning to Pakistan in order to advance the anti-government movement, Maryam Nawaz asked the former President to guarantee that her father’s life would not be in any danger on his return home.

This exchange took place during today’s meeting of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) ahead of the planned Long March on March 26. The movement seems to have hit a roadblock after former President Asif Ali Zardari’s surprising demand.

According to sources, Asif Ali Zardari has demanded that be it long march or no-confidence motion against the PTI government, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif must return to Pakistan.

The PPP co-chairman said that resigning from assemblies would strengthen Prime Minister Imran Khan, adding that his party prefers to fight staying in the parliament.
