Lahore [Pakistan], December 26 (ANI): Pakistani Muslim League (Nawaz) (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Saturday said that Shehbaz Sharif, Leader of the Opposition, would have become the Prime Minister if he had been disloyal to his brother Nawaz Sharif but "he rejected all offers".

She was speaking to the media at the Sharifs' Jati Umra residence in Lahore before leaving for Sindh where she has been invited by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to attend a rally on December 26 on the death anniversary of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Dawn reported.

While refuting rumours that Shehbaz was considering going against brother Nawaz, she said, it has been "proven in the past and today that Shehbaz Sharif is very loyal to his brother and his party".

"If he was not loyal, then there would be no need to bring this inefficient prime minister to power, [Shehbaz] would have been made prime minister. He has rejected all such offers and the proof of that is him and his son being in jail," she added.

Shebaz Sharif and his son Hamza Shehbaz are currently serving imprisonment after being charged for money laundering. (ANI)
