Cannot even think of replacing Nawaz: Shahbaz Sharif
Islamabad, Mar 13: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was elected the PML-N president unopposed on Tuesday.
Addressing a meeting of the PML-N General Council in Islamabad after his election, Shahbaz said he was honoured to have been chosen as the party president but that no one, including himself, could even think about taking the place of Nawaz Sharif, who was removed as the party president by the Supreme Court but was later rechristened as the party’s ‘leader for life’.
“Nawaz Sharif can be considered the political heir of Quaid-i-Azam,” he said. “We are lucky to have been blessed with a Quaid [leader] like Nawaz Sharif.”
Shahbaz said today is “not a day to celebrate” because the world knows that his party’s leader has been “targeted”.
