In an interview on Pakistani news channel Geo News with Saleem Safi, Sharif denied allegations of lending any form of support to Reham Khan for her upcoming book which has stirred controversy.
“I am neither behind Reham’s book nor gave her a single penny for it directly or indirectly,” he said.
He further said “Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has alleged that I am behind Reham’s book but I give no value to his allegation.”
