As being reported the wedding reception of Junaid Safdar will be held on December 14 in Islamabad while Valima event will be held in Lahore on December 17.
Her comments came following Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry’s remarks during a press conference regarding the wedding festivities.
PTI leader had appreciated the singing skills of Maryam Nawaz. However, he mentioned that their only objection is that the PML-N should not spend “nation’s money on wedding events.”
“It was nice. This is how it normally happens in Pakistan. What is there to object to it. I think it’s perfectly okay.”
Addressing a press conference after a cabinet meeting in Islamabad, Chaudhry said: “We only have political differences with them, [and] our only objection is that they should not spend our money on wedding events. [They should] return our money.”
