A former provincial lawmaker of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) Dr Ashraf Chohan has rebelled against his own party by having a business partnership with ARY anchor Mubashir Lucman in London.
Mubasher Luxcman used to invite Dr Chohan at his show several times as an expert on many issues, including his programmes against Jang and Geo group.
Dr Chohan had been accommodated as his brother Nawaz Chohan is now PML-N’s Punjab Assembly seat (PP-92) member but things are going against the MPA because the Sharifs are angry that Dr Chohan has been sponsoring and doing business with an anchor who has not even spared their family members.
No PML-N guy appears on Lucman’s show as per its media policy.
Sources said a tape has been passed on to Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in which Dr Chohan is heard berating the Sharifs at a club in London which Lucman has reportedly 50 per cent share.
Dr Chohan is based in London and he was disqualified for holding dual nationality.
Dr Chohan runs a club called “The Bell House” in central London where he hosts visiting Pakistani politicians. Dr Chohan has another property in this area which he had bought directly from the former British prime minister.
A source in Punjab government said the PML-N leadership has asked Nawaz Chohan to explain his position. Nawaz Chohan had told his brother not to sponsor Mubasher Lucman as it was politically damaging him. – Pak Destiny
