PTI government’s day of reckoning is near, claims Maryam
Maryam Nawaz addresses the public rally.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz said on Thursday that the day of reckoning of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government was near, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a public gathering at Palandri in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) as part of the campaign for the elections due to be held there on July 25, Maryam said fear of defeat in the next general elections had propelled the PTI government to introduce electoral reforms. “Let me tell you that electoral reforms are not a machine. These are the manifestation of people’s power,” she commented.
“Now when they have lost occupied Kashmir to India, they have set their eyes on Azad Jammu and Kashmir,” she said, and asked the forces ‘inimical’ to the PML-N not to become an obstacle in the way of party’s ascent to power. “If you tried to steal elections from the PML-N, you will have no place to hide,” she warned.
She claimed the entire AJK was reverberating with the slogan of ‘Vote ko Izzat Dau’.
PML-N vice president said she would gladly tell her father, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, that his slogan ‘Vote ko Izzat Dau’ had reached every nook and corner of Azad Kashmir.
She accused the government of mortgaging the projects completed by Nawaz Sharif. “Prices of life saving drugs were increased 10 times,” she regretted, and alleged that the government had even tried to kill her father while he was in jail.
Maryam said she had learnt that the government was going to increase prices of petroleum products today (Thursday), adding that increase in the prices did not affect Prime Minister Imran Khan since he did not travel on cars but on bicycles.
PML-N vice president also alleged that the conspiracy to ‘sell’ Kashmir to India was hatched in the USA.
Maryam said conspiracies were hatched against Nawaz on several occasions.
She taunted that PM Imran had Nawaz Sharif ‘phobia’.
