Maryam says not afraid of FIRs as police book PML-N leaders

PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday said they were not afraid of cases as so many FIRs had been registered against them, adding that the entire world witnessed how Lahore came out and welcomed her during Monday’s rally, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The remarks came as multiple cases were registered against the PML-N leaders and workers in several police stations in the provincial capital after Monday’s rally.

Talking to media persons at Jati Umra before leaving for Islamabad to attend the much-awaited PDM leadership meeting, Maryam said the FIRs did not have any value as the government would soon have to go.

She noted that the people tired of inflation and joblessness were looking towards the PDM and Nawaz Sharif as a messiah.

Replying to a question, Maryam said that she did not want to comment on any of the government spokespersons. The government was frightened by the PDM rally in Lahore scheduled for December 13, the PML-N leader remarked.

“Talking about law and Constitution does not suit the government,” remarked the PML-N leader.

About the PDM meeting, she described the huddle as important and said that considerable discussion had been held on many issues.

“The people are leading this movement. It is a people’s movement,” said Maryam who added that the struggle was aimed at rescuing them from the challenges they had been facing.

She vowed that the movement wouldn’t stop whether it was Maryam Nawaz or any other person to lead till the removal of the incumbent government.

Earlier, one of these cases was registered in Shahdara on the complaint of a patwari in which a total of four five MNAs and four MPAs were nominated.

Malik Riaz, Marriyum Aurangzeb, Talal Chaudhry and Waseem Khokhar are among those accused of violating the coronavirus SOPs and The Punjab Sound Systems (Regulations) Act as well as delivering speeches to incite people.

Meanwhile, the officials at Misri Shah Police Station four more FIRs against Mian Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman and over 500 other party leaders and workers under similar charges.

The move came after over 150 local PML-N leaders and workers were booked for holding the rally by the Misri Shah Police Station officials. 

On the other hand, the PDM meeting chaired by JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman will deliberate upon different options including resignations from assemblies and the proposed long march towards Islamabad
