During the meeting, Maryam was quoted as saying, “with your (Abbasi’s) guidance, I want to work for the betterment of the country and the party”.
She added that PML-N was “not her property” and that everyone should work for the party under Nawaz Sharif’s guidance.
“Leaders like you (Abbasi) are a pride for the PML-N. Your sacrifices [for the party] cannot be forgotten.”
Abbasi was quoted to have saying that he was a part of the PML-N and would not leave the party.
He said Nawaz was his leader, adding that Premier Shehbaz Sharif’s guidance was “always there” for him.
Abbasi had resigned from his party post as senior vice president after Maryam was elevated to the position and also made the chief organiser.
