LAHORE  -  PML-N supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has termed the arrest of Shehbaz Sharif deplorable and ridiculous.

Reacting to the arrest of his brother and party president, Nawaz said Shehbaz Sharif set glorious example of public service, honestly and hard work that was acknowledged not only by the people of Pakistan but also by foreign governments and the international organisations.

Everyone knows that the PTI government is responsible for this worst kind of political victimisation, the former prime minister said, advising the PTI government not to forget this treatment as tomorrow it can also face the same as it is law of the nature. He also asked the PTI not to shift the burden of its failures and incompetence to Shehbaz Sharif.
