ISLAMABAD- Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has offered a Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) ticket to Javed Hashmi to contest from Multan.

The offer came a few days after the politician announced to quit his National Assembly seat. Taking advantage of the situation, the PM has offered Hashmi to contest from NA-149 constituency on PML-N’s ticket. Hashmi has sought some time to consult the matter with his friends.

PTI chairman Imran Khan parted ways with Javed Hashmi following his criticism and accusations against the party leadership. Hashmi had criticized Imran Khan for going back on his promises, claiming that the ongoing political crisis in the country was ‘scripted’.
