Not afraid of going into elections: Maryam

Hamza says Imran Khan made common man’s life miserable

After successful rallies and public gatherings of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), its main rival Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has also decided to do the same.

The PML-N held its power show at one of the constituencies of Lahore, NA-128, on Tuesday night. The rally was addressed by both Maryam Nawaz and Hamza Shehbaz, the scions of Sharif family. Addressing the workers in NA-128 at night, Maryam Nawaz said that PML-N isn’t afraid of elections but those [are] who lost 15 out of 16 by-elections in their own government. “He (Imran Khan) is demanding the elections to hide his corruption that will now be exposed,” Maryam said while adding that the PML-N has deep roots in the public and it doesn’t have any fear going into elections.

She also challenged Imran Khan to tell his four-year performance in one minute but she said that he has nothing to tell. Addressing the charged workers, the PML-N Vice President said that Imran Khan tried his best to save his government till the last moment but failed. “He filed a mercy petition with the establishment to save his government and also sent his friend to Asif Ali Zardari but failed,” Maryam said, adding that “earlier, he had a cup (World Cup) with him for 22 years and now he will have a letter with him for the next 22 years.”

She further said that Imran is speaking about a “conspiracy” as he has nothing to show for his performance in the last four years. Speaking to the workers, Punjab CM-elect Hamza Shehbaz said: “Your enthusiasm today shows that you are returning to ‘old Pakistan’.” He was taking a jibe at former premier’s slogan of making New Pakistan. Hamza said that Imran Khan had made the life of common man miserable due to his failed policies and bad governance.
