Islamabad, April 24, 2013 (PPI-OT): Spokesperson to President, Senator Farhatullah Babar has deplored the unsubstantiated accusations hurled by PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif in a public meeting against the President of Pakistan and seeking to drag the President in partisan political controversies.
In a statement today, the Spokesperson said that the President as head of the state and in deference to recent court’s observations has scrupulously refrained from indulging in partisan political activities or making political statements.
