Islamabad, Sep.3 (ANI): The Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) has withdrawn its 48-hour deadline to the ruling Pakistan People's Party (PPP) which had asked the latter to stop the character assassination campaign being run against the PML-N leadership.

The Daily Times quoted PML-N Senator Pervaiz Rashid, saying that his party has withdrawn its ultimatum after 'achieving the objectives'.

Earlier, PML-N Information Secretary Ahsan Iqbal gave a 48-hour 'ultimatum' to PPP asking it to halt the character assassination drive against the top PML-N leadership, which was being run through a 'cell' in the presidency, in association with the MQM.

However, sources said Iqbal's statement has annoyed senior party leaders including former foreign minister Sartaj Aziz.

They disapproved the use of word 'ultimatum' by Iqbal, though they had no objection to the allegations leveled by him against the Presidency.

Meanwhile, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif has said that Saudi government should not be involved in Pakistan's political affairs.

Addressing a press conference at Chief Minister's Secretariat here, Sharif asked the Saudi authorities to not to meddle in Pakistan's internal matters. (ANI)
