Ousted premier Nawaz Sharif today told Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to take notice of “suspicious” on-going activities in Balochistan.

PML-N supremo said that the recent changes in Balochistan’s politics, as well as the election of the Senate chairman, are “surprising”.

While talking to media persons inside the accountability court conducting corruption proceedings against him, the former premier said he does not know the inside story but what Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Zardari is doing is shameful.

He also asked Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to declare if his party members did not vote for the PPP candidate in the recent Senate chairman elections.

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had accused the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) led alliance of indulging in horse-trading during the Senate elections, with Maryam Nawaz, the former first daughter, termed the opposition senators ‘pawn in the chess game’.

On March 14, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had taken suo moto notice of the alleged horse-trading in the Senate elections, held on March 3.

Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (r) Sardar Raza Khan had said, “It is unfortunate that those who sell their vote, and those who buy it are both parliamentarians.”
