LAHORE: The Opposition party in the Punjab Assembly, PML-N on Friday announced that they will not participate in “friendly matches” scheduled to take place at the Governor's House in Punjab.
PML-N spokesperson in Punjab Uzma Bukhari said that the party will not become a “spectacle” in any cricket match.
She criticised PPP for accepting to participate in the friendly matches, saying that they shouldn’t play a “double game”.
PML-N leader Rana Mashhood said that the government calls them (PML-N leaders) “thieves” and at the same time they ask them to join in and play cricket matches.
Meanwhile, Minister for Prisons Fayyazul Hassan Chohan likened PML-N’s refusal to participate in the matches to the New Zealand and England’s pullout of the Pakistan tour.
“PML-N shouldn’t refuse to play by falling prey to conspiracy like New Zealand and England cricket boards,” said Chohan.
