Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique admitted to his second marriage in nomination papers submitted for General Elections 2018.
According to the entry made in the papers, Rafique tied knot with news anchor of Pakistan Television Dr Shafaq Hira this year.She is associated with the state-run channel for the past seven years.
Prior to his disclosure, reports about Saad rafiq’s second marriage with Shafaq surfaced in 2016.
However, Saad Rafique had to pay a heavy price for making disclosure about his second marriage, as his first wife Ghazala Saad took back her nomination papers. However, it is not clear yet whether she withdrew her nomination papers to express her anger against her husband or for some other reasons.
Sadd Rafique will contest the elections against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan from NA-131. A stiff competition is expected between both of them.
