Says he is emotionally attached to the party and Nawaz Sharif
Zaeem Qadri, the disgruntled PML-N leader who parted ways with the party just a few weeks before the 2018 general election, said that Nawaz Sharif is still his leader and the party is like a mother to him.
“I am myself Muslim League-N,” Mr Qadri told SAMAA TV in an interview on Tuesday. “You can't be called a political worker if you leave your ideology behind.”
Just over a month before the 2018 general elections, Qadri parted ways with the PML-N and contested the elections as an independent candidate from NA-133.
He was at loggerheads with Hamza Shahbaz over the distribution of election tickets. During a press conference in June 21, 2018 he lashed out at his former party leaders and said he will not “polish Hamza Shahbaz’s shoes”.
“Lahore is not your or your father’s property,” the disgruntled PML-N leader said, referring to Hamza.
However, Qadri now says that the party is in his blood. “PML-N is like a mother figure for me and its leader a father figure,” Qadri said.
