Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz claimed on Monday that the time was not far away when everyone in the country will follow the narrative of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Continuing her charged election campaign n Leepa Valley for the July 25 elections in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), the PML-N leader said her father was a patriotic Pakistani.
“His criticism should not be considered against institutions but rather against certain people,” Maryam affirmed, clarifying what the narrative of PML-N supremo was.
Ambiguously hitting out at ‘certain’ people, she said: “A few individuals hatched a conspiracy against the former premier to portray him as anti-institutions.”
"If the country is to move on the path of prosperity then the narrative of Nawaz Sharif needs to be adopted... the time is not far away when everyone will be following it," she said while addressing the participants.
Talking about the July 25 elections, she asserted that the spirits displayed by the people in AJK indicated that Sher (lion) — PML-N's party symbol — was going to rule the region once again.
Taking a jibe at PM Imran, she said: "That vote thief has now set his eyes on Kashmir [elections] but Imran Khan cannot compete with Nawaz Sharif... despite being in the government for three years, he is still hoping to win via rigging”.
The PML-N leader said that after the alleged rigging in the 2018 elections, her party had grown to learn the task of getting back "stolen seats".
"Imran Khan's ministers have been found giving away money in AJK... he should not waste his time coming to Kashmir... the people here have already given their verdict."
Inflation and poverty have risen to historic height due to the policies of the prime minister. "I cannot let anyone steal Kashmirs' rights... want to ask Imran Khan why is he coming here? To snatch the bread of Kashmiris as well?" she asked.
