LAHORE: The leader of PML-N and daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif Maryam Nawaz said that people proved that Lahore has rejected the conspiracy hatched against Nawaz Sharif by distancing away from Imran Khan’sFriday rally.
Addressing the Trader’s convention in Abid Market of NA-120 constituency, she challenged the opponents “Come in field and compete with Nawaz Sharif”.
Maryam Nawaz claimed that the verdict on Panama case was announced before the trial began.
“Corruption, Panama, and Iqama are all excuses to target Nawaz Sharif,”
She said she had brought her father’s review petition to the traders’ community’s court.
“Was it not Nawaz who brought the country out of the power crisis,” she said, adding each time her father was handed over a ‘broken Pakistan,’ her father strengthened it and built it back again.
She questioned the apex court’s July 28 judgment and said when they could not find truth in allegations hurled against Nawaz Sharif they used Iqama for his removal.
“Corruption, Panama and Iqama were not the issue but they fear PML-N will sweep the next election and they see its victory,” she said.
He told the workers and supporters must convey the other people that NA-120 by poll will not an election but contest that will ensure the sanctity of vote and supremacy of people. She went on saying that Nawaz Sharif has pulled the country from darkness and light up the streets of the Pakistan but conspirators made hinders in the way and tried to stop the country’s uplift.
“People should reply conspirators with casting their vote in favour of PML-N onSeptember 17 as it will decide the future of Pakistan,” she said.
She mentioned that Nawaz Sharif removal shocked the stock market and 100-index dropped sharply as during his tenure stock market broke all records and became one of the most emerging markets.
“I bring the Nawaz Sharif review petition in traders’ court and hope they will do justice with him,” she appealed the business community.
The seat of NA-120 fell vacant after Nawaz was disqualified by the Supreme Court in the Panama Leaks case on July 28 on charges of concealing his salary from a Dubai-based company that he claims he never received.
