ISLAMABAD – Deposed Pakistani premier and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif has directed Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif not to start dialogue with PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

PML-N chief, who is living in self-imposed exile, shared his views on Twitter as the former ruling party continued its march to the capital and the political crisis deepened.

Last Friday, the PTI chief embarked on a week-long march to Islamabad, in another bid to whip up a large enough show of support to pressurize the ruling alliance for early elections.

In the series of tweets, the former PM said he told Shehbaz Sharif not to give any ‘face saving’ to the defiant politician. PM Shehbaz has been directed not to accept any demand of Imran Khan whether he brings 2,000 or 20,000 people to the capital, Nawaz said, adding that PM should keep his focus in serving the nation.

Taking a jibe at the ousted premier, Nawaz said those who make tall claims of bringing million of people are now coming to Islamabad with hardly 2,000 workers.

PML-N chief also rapped PTI chief said he spoke lies so blatantly that the ISI chief had to come forward to reveal the truth and further slammed him for using abusive language.

Nawaz issued directives for the premier as the government earlier formed a federal-level committee to hold talks with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in light of the party's ongoing march.
