PTI summons parliamentary party meeting today

Former PM Nawaz Sharif on May 10

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was among more than a hundred party lawmakers in attendance at the meeting.

The controversial statement was immediately taken up by Indian media, which termed the Nawaz Sharif's remarks as a confession of Pakistan's role in the Mumbai attacks that left 166 people dead. Those aspiring for a PML-N ticket have been advised to submit their applications till May 25.

Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that the National Security Committee's (NSC) stance on his remarks related to the 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai was regrettable and painful.

"The statement by the former premier benefited India and appeared prejudiced towards the state's safety and the interests, and that apparently Sharif is guilty of high treason as well as offences punishable in terms of the Official Secret Act, 1923 for which he deserves to be proceeded in accordance with law", the petitioners said.

During the meeting, lawmakers informed Shehbaz of the issues faced by them.

In reference to an increasing number of PML-N members joining his party recently, the PTI chairman said his party might not be able to take in the "massive exodus from PML-N".

The PML-N's Parliamentary Party felicitated Shahbaz Sharif for holding the presidentship of PML-N.

While addressing the meeting, Shehbaz touted that its party PML-N fulfilled "all" its promises and propagated an era of development in its tenure. They assured the PTI candidate of their full support for his success in the upcoming general election.

"Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains". He also apprised them over plan to table a constitutional amendment to merge the Federally Administered Tribal Areas with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

It may be mentioned here that PM Abbasi had chaired a similar meeting on Wednesday to take party lawmakers into confidence after the recent statement by the party's supreme leader.
