PML-N serves show-cause notice to Rana Mashhood over controversial statement
LAHORE - Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has issued a show-cause notice to its leader Rana Mashhood over a controversial statement about settlement between his party and the country's establishment.

In an interview to a private television channel, the PML-N leader, earlier, expressed that the establishment was saddened as Shehbaz Sharif was not able to become the prime minister.

Mashhood, believed to be a close confidant of the ex-Punjab CM, credited the former Punjab chief minister for ‘settling matters with establishment’ while claiming that his party was in a position to form a government in Punjab within a span of two months.

Hamza Shehbaz would be PML-N’s candidate for the post of Punjab chief minister, he added.

On a query regarding the conduct of Maryam Nawaz and former premier Nawaz Sharif, the former minister expressed that the tone of the duo would remain a bit harsh until ‘things are fully settled’.
