Lahore : Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Saturday said Maryam Nawaz had made an absurd attempt to gain public sympathy through an audio/video tape.
Addressing the media here at a local hotel, she said during the PML-N press conference today, Shahbaz Sharif looked like a gambler who had lost every thing. It seemed that a coup had occurred in PML-N and the niece had cornered his uncle, she added.Dr Firdous said the head of the gang, responsible for leaking,If someone level allegation against others then it was necessary that he should be honest and credible, she said.
Firdous said a failed attempt was made to bolster PML-N with the help of the tape provided by Nasir Butt, who was an infamous murderer and gang leader who fled to the United Kingdom after killing five people and remained an absconder for 20 years while Nasir Butt's credibility was also a question mark.
She said Nasir Butt worked as a security guard for Nawaz Sharif in the UK and his cases were closed when the PML-N came into power again.
Dr Firdous said credibility of the tape would be determined after
forensic analysis. “We will not hide anything from the nation.
