RAWALPINDI: In a sharp reaction to the hurling of a shoe at former prime minister and PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif today in Lahore, his daughter Maryam Nawaz said on Sunday the masses will respond to such tactics by voting for the party in the coming general elections.
Addressing PML-N social media workers’ convention here, she said her father always did the politics of ethos, not of power.
“Whatever happened to your leader this morning has hurt you,” she said, adding that she too was saddened by the shoe hurling incident.
But, she said, their leader won’t be deterred by such tactics, protests, and machinations. “The caravans of lions don’t stop in fear of jackals,” she thundered.
Maryam said those fearing the popular tide being on Nawaz Sharif’s side in the wake of his ouster stooped to such tactics.
She asked the crowd to respond to what treatment the PML-N supreme leader was being meted out by voting for his party.
Maryam said those who didn’t accept the July 28 disqualification verdict should join their caravan.
She opined that Sharif was treading on the right path, which was why he was made the target of insults and conspiracies.
