He claimed that Pakistan Muslim League-N had good working relationships with coalition partners including Pakistan Peoples Party.

To another question about division among leaders of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI), he said that PTI had been using the blame game agenda for four years. He added that the party was engaged in propaganda games during the period of the last four years. He said that PTI leaders had been running the party affairs for personal gains.

Appreciating the PML-N strategy, he said PTI regime after coming into power made false cases against the leaders of PML-N but all the party members of PML-N are still united under the umbrella of Nawaz Sharif. About parliament and judiciary role in Pakistan, he said that Parliament is a supreme institution while the supreme court’s main job was to provide justice to people. He said it is the duty of parliamentarians to work on reforming the judicial system for achieving better results in the future.
