Former PM Nawaz Sharif said his opponents are afraid of him because they know that the PML-N is going to win upcoming elections.
Mr. Sharif took a dig at his rivals and said governments in Sindh and KP have failed to perform. “Shehbaz Sharif was inaugurating development projects on daily basis and has completed many of them,” Nawaz said, addressing a rally in Faisalabad.
The former PM criticized the top court for disqualifying him. “I was disqualified for not taking salary from my son,” he said. “Do you approve of this?”
He said people’s vote could change court’s decision.
Criticizing the defectors, he said the PML-N would distribute election tickets among candidates only after endorsement from the voters. “The sanctity of vote will be restored.”
Nawaz Sharif didn’t let democracy derail: Maryam Nawaz
Maryam Nawaz said the government completed its five year term despite all the conspiracies against it. “Nawaz Sharif sacrificed himself but didn’t let the democracy derail,” she said.
The PML-N leader said her father stood by the previous PPP government when it needed the support. “Nawaz Sharif didn’t let anyone topple Zardari government.”
“Those who were issuing fatwas of treason against Nawaz Sharif are silent over Asad Durrani’s book,” she said. “Why don’t they convene a meeting of National Security Council now?”
