ISLAMABAD: On Wednesday, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan levelled sarcasm at former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, as he “appreciated” the PML-N quaid for “campaigning” for the PTI through his “now-obvious love fest” with Indian prime minister Modi.
Khan added that he was “startled” that with Nawaz speaking Modi’s language, his party “may not be able to take in the massive exodus from PML-N”.
Much as I appreciate Nawaz campaigning for PTI through his now-obvious love fest with Modi, to save his corruption & business interests; I am alarmed that at the rate he is speaking Modi's language PTI may not be able to take in the massive exodus from PMLN.

Former premier Nawaz Sharif is under fire from his rivals following his controversial statement on the 2008 Mumbai attacks. His statement however, was totally rejected by the National Security Committee, which termed it “incorrect and misleading”.
Following the NSC statement, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi made attempts to clarify at a press conference that Nawaz’s remarks were quoted out of context in the media.
