Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shehbaz has termed the arrest of Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), ‘a joke with the nation’.

Talking to reporter on Sunday, he said that Shehbaz Sharif was arrested by the NAB on Friday in the Ashiana Iqbal housing scheme case.

The opposition leader’s son said that his father saved as many as Rs2300 billion of the national exchequer in different projects, adding that the Prime Minister Imran Khan is biased against the PML-N and that is apparent to the people of Pakistan.

Hamza said that Rs70bn Peshawar bus metro project has become ruins of the past. “Shehbaz was summoned before the NAB on a different case and was arrested on another, such joke with the nation will not last long,” he said.
