Maryam Nawaz feels pity for ‘obedient’ prime minister

PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz says one feels pity for this prime minister who has to tell the people that the military is subordinate to him.

“The man is obedient,” Maryam repeated her recently-coined slogan which she first used at the PDM rally in Multan on November 30 and asked the people, “You can understand the rest.”

She was commenting on Imran’s latest statement that the military was subordinate, not above, to him.  

The new slogan “Banda Tabedar Hai” (the man is obedient) was an instant success and resulted in a hashtag and top trend on Twitter as soon as she addressed the crowd in Multan.

Later, the PML-N prepared a song which was played at the opposition’s mammoth gathering in Lahore repeatedly and even during Maryam’s speech.  

Earlier, Maryam praised PML-N leader Mudassar Qayyum Nahra for his steadfastness and promise to stand by Nawaz Sharif no matter how many cases are registered against him.

Nahra – a former National Assembly member from Gujranwala – was earlier arrested by Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment, alleging that he had occupied state land worth billions in the area.

Threats to food factories

Separately, Maryam Nawaz said food factories were being forced to buy substandard and costly sugar through threats using government department.

In a tweet, she, citing complaints being received from everywhere, said that the owners were being harassed and warned that their factories would be closed if they did not buy sugar at a price Rs8 higher than the market rate.
