Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that there is no new opposition alliance and neither the position of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has changed.
Talking to media persons in federal capital, Maryam Nawaz claimed that PML-N does not need support of anyone as it already has more than enough members to bring change in Punjab and send provincial government packing.
Lashing out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, the PML-N leader said that government is manipulating growth statistics while people have been devastated and they are cursing the government. Every section of society has been affected by rising inflation, she added.
Maryam Nawaz also rebuffed reports of divisions in the opposition alliance and said that Shehbaz Sharif hosted dinner for opposition parliamentarians as Opposition Leader of National Assembly. A meeting of PDM will also take place in a day or two.
Responding to a question regarding statement of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Maryam Nawaz said that the former prime minister presented stance of PML-N and did the right thing.
