PMLN to face situation in political manner: Abid Sher Ali.

FAISALABAD -- Former state minister and central leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Chaudhry Abid Sher Ali said on Saturday that double standards in judicial system had surfaced, but the PML-N would face the situation in a political manner.
