Won’t bow down before tyrant, vows Maryam Nawaz
Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and the PML-N were standing by firmly on their stance, she said, adding that they won’t bow down before the oppressor just like Hazrat Hussain who didn’t capitulate before Yazid.
Maryam was addressing a corner meeting at Nagar Khas in Hunza Valley as part of the election campaign she launched in the region last week. She will address three more gatherings – one at Aliabad and two in Gilgit – during the day.
The PML-N was the party which not only never surrendered before the persecutor but also served the masses, said Maryam who listed different services introduced in the region, including Rescue 1122 and solid waste management, by Nawaz Sharif.
She said tyrants had no room in Gilgit-Baltistan and hoped that the people would vote for her party in the elections scheduled for November 15.
Describing Prime Minister Imran Khan as a tormenter and cheap person, Maryam said he could not even stand for his respect. He was protecting his office at every cost with the government being run by someone else, the PML-N leader remarked.
She blasted Imran for his recent statement in which he had claimed that there was no price hike and the alarming inflation was just opposition propaganda.
How he could know the miserable period the people were going through when meeting the daily food needs had become difficult for many, said Maryam. The ordinary people did not have their kitchens managed by others, she mocked the prime minister.
Later in the day, Maryam culminated her election campaign with a rally at Yadgar Chowk in Gilgit where she said the large historic gathering was an announcement of the victory of Nawaz Sharif and Hafiz Hafeez-ur-Rehman.
She warned the chief election commissioner not to rig the elections and said the people would not accept the results if their votes were stolen.
Maryam again asked the people not to vote for turncoats who, she said, were best suited for bathrooms. End the tradition of choosing electables and vote for those representing trust and faithfulness, she remarked.
The PML-N leader also asked the men to promise that they would provide every possible opportunity to women for enabling them to progress in practical life.
Maryam said the vote thieves had realised that the people of Gilgit-Baltistan could identify their faces.
She also advised the party leaders and candidates to ensure that the polling agents didn’t allow rigging in elections.
Maryam cited lying, deceit and dishonesty as the traits of Prime Minister Imran Khan and said the people would reject him in the elections.
When Hafeez made the crowd chant the slogan that the last refuge of Imran was mental asylum, the PML-N leader said it wasn’t the case as he should be handed over to the people who could hold him accountable for his deeds.
