In an interview, Sharif had criticised his country for letting militant groups cross the border and commit attacks like the one in Mumbai in November 2008.

His remarks triggered a major political controversy, ahead of general election in Pakistan.

It is pertinent to mention here that former deposed PM and PML-N's lifelong leader Nawaz Sharif first used the term "aliens" for "undemocratic forces" he feels were behind his ouster during a rally in Sadiqabad area of Rahim Yar Khan on May 4. Another topic of the discussion for the meeting is said to be Nawaz Sharif's Controversial Statements.

On Thursday, the petitioner, Pakistan Zindabad Party chief Aftab Virk, who is also a lawyer, contended that Sharif's statements amounted to "committing treason" against the country. Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was among more than a hundred party lawmakers in attendance at the meeting.

At this, Shahbaz, who has taken over from Nawaz as the PML-N president following the latter's disqualification, said that "whoever arranged that interview is the biggest enemy of Nawaz Sharif".

Meanwhile, Mr. Sharif's brother Shahbaz assured party lawmakers that the former will be asked to consult the party leadership before talking on sensitive issues.

The lawmakers said that they will face problems when they approach voters during election time.

The ouster of the beleaguered Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif due to differences with the establishment has once again put into spotlight the Pakistani "deep state" targeting elected representatives of people.

Around 120 lawmakers of the party attended the meeting.

The lawmakers also urged Shehbaz Sharif to take charge of party affairs, sources further said. "However, India created that impression by misreporting the interview".
