While acknowledging his move to Pakistan, Junaid Safdar, the grandson of former premier Nawaz Sharif, emphasized on Friday that he won’t be engaging in any political activity.
He said in a recent Instagram post that the only reason he moved to Pakistan was to be of service to his community, family, and parents.
His response follows many reports that claimed Junaid would support Maryam Nawaz, the senior vice president of the PML-N, in the 2019 general elections.
For the most part, Junaid has avoided the spotlight. He made headlines last year for his extravagant Pakistani wedding celebration.
Maryam and her father have left for a week-long trip to Geneva. The visit coincides with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s attendance at the UN-led donor’s conference, where the premier will appeal to the international community for assistance with post-flood rehabilitation.
Earlier, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said Maryam would be returning to Pakistan in the third week of January.
