Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) president and former Chief Minister of Punjab Shahbaz Sharif said he had convinced Nawaz Sharif to issue party ticket to Chaudhry Nisar for contesting general elections.

Shahbaz Sharif said Nawaz Sharif had accepted his request of issuing ticket to former federal minister before going London, but due to Nisar’s statements, senior party leaders reviewed the decision of issuing ticket to federal minister.

“Nisar was Nawaz’s good friend and I was eyewitness of their relations, rather I also had good relation with Chaudhry Nisar ,” Shahbaz Sharif said. “I am not happy over this development as I want to see them as good friend forever,” he added.

“I had good relation with Chaudhry Nisar , therefore I will never say anything about him,” PML-N president said. “Man should not lose courage in hardships,” he concluded.

Early in the day PML-N candidates returned tickets back to party leadership and announced to contest elections independently.
