Former chief minister Punjab Mian Shehbaz Sharif here on Friday congratulated PML-N leader and former foreign minister Khawaja Asif after the Supreme Court’s verdict to overturn the Islamabad High Court’s decision to disqualify him for lifetime.

The former CM Punjab took to his official Twitter handle to pass on warm wishes on the occasion.

Urging him to forget the rest and start preparing for the Elections he said “we had witnessed many times, the Sialkot peoples’ love for Khawaja Asif, now Khawaja Asif (should) abandon everything and start preparing for the elections”.

Earlier on Friday, the SC overturned an April 26 decision of the IHC to disqualify the PML-N leader for life.
