OKARA-The defection of some turncoats would have no effect on the PML-N, rather it will strengthen the party further.

PML-N leader Ch Arshad Iqbal stated while talking to journalists here the other day.

He said millions of people of Pakistan stand behind the PML-N and its leader Nawaz Sharif. He said that the masses would reject those who have nothing to do with public welfare and change political loyalties for vested interests.

He said that the turncoats had no future in politics. “Those conspiring to split the party will never succeed in their evil designs,” he maintained.

DIES

Former Okara deputy commissioner Arshad Bhatti died in an accident on GT Road. He was on the way to Multan from Lahore in a car. At 4pm, the car driver lost control over steering. As a result, it skidded off the road and rammed into a tree. Arshad Bhatti sustained critical injuries. He was rushed to hospital but died on the way. The car driver was being treated at Okara Combined Military Hospital.
