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.”
