Nehal Hashmi withdraws resignation from Senate

ISLAMABAD: Suspended PML-N leader Nehal Hasmi on Tuesday withdrew his resignation from the Senate after a meeting with chairman Raza Rabbani.

Hashmi had submitted his resignation from the Senate after a video surfaced last week in which he lashed out at “those investigating” Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family.

In the video, the senator had warned that those conducting the investigation will be “taken to task” for grilling the premier’s family. Subsequently, his party membership was suspended by the PML-N.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar also took suo motu notice of Hashmi’s remarks and ordered to open a contempt of court case against Hashmi.

Hashmi has submitted a written application seeking withdrawal of his resignation.
