BAHAWALNAGAR: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Monday said that her father, deposed premier Nawaz Sharif, will come back with more strength and a renewed resolve to serve Pakistan after the 2018 general elections, ARY News reported.
Addressing a party workers’ convention in Chishtian city of Bahawalnagar district of Punjab, Maryam Nawaz maintained that detractors are using all tactics to defame Nawaz Sharif but his come back is just two months away.
“Opponents of PML-N are left with no choice but to defame Nawaz as Nawaz Sharif fulfilled all the promises he made before 2013 polls aas he provided electricity, brought back economy on the path of recovery and eradicated terrorism,” said Maryam Nawaz.
She was of the view that PML-N’s opponents tried to decrease the popular support for the party and used all tactics including the use of “treason card” after Nawaz’s interview with an English daily but to no avail.
‘Vote to reject the disqualification verdict’
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, during his speech, thanked people Chishtian for attending the convention in large numbers making it a “rally” and said that this rally is a proof that his “Vote Ko Izzat Do” (Respect Vote) narrative is gaining popular among people.
He claimed that he did his best to resolve energy crisis and brought country on the path of progress but is now being termed a “traitor”.
“Why is is it that everyone who works for this country and serves its people is being called a traitor? do you accept this? do you accept the verdict (which led to his disqualification)” he asked the crowd which replied with a big “No”.
The PML-N’s “Quaid for Life” also urged people of Chishtian to vote for his party and reject the “conspirators” who threw out an elected prime minister.
“Vote for me, vote for me in such large numbers that this disqualification verdict disappears under the burden of your votes,” said Nawaz.
