Shehbaz took to Twitter and wrote that "Our viewpoint on NAB is principled — which is legal in nature and we will keep voicing our concerns on all forums".

The opposition in the NA added that "PML-N has nothing to do with anybody’s private life and will stick to its political and legal narrative!"
