ZAFARWAL: The Vice-President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday travelled to the district in order to meet the 18-year old party worker Zaki-ur-Rehman, suffering from thalassaemia in Narowal.
Maryam Nawaz Sharif said that the Former prime minister “Nawaz Sharif advised me to go meet Zaki-ur-Rehman in person.” She added that she was instructed by her father, Nawaz Sharif who is currently in Kot Lakhpat Jail, to give the teen “love and respect”.
The former first daughter also expressed her gratitude for her admirers and party workers for coming to see her in Zafarwal. The Vice-President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Maryam Nawaz said: “You all are standing here in rain; I respect your passion!”
She also addressed a gathering during her visit where she criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan by commenting on the general elections of 2018, and also slammed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Maryam Nawaz said that “Nawaz Sharif’s victory in the 2018 elections was stolen from him.” She further explained that Pakistan was prospering under the leadership of her party, and also, power projects were being set up, and terrorism wiped out. She went on to say the ex-premier was removed from power “over a joke of an Iqama issue”.
The Federal Budget 2019-2020 was also bashed by Maryam Nawaz, which was presented by the State Minister for Revenue Hammad Azhar on Tuesday.
She added that “Pakistani people are being given hell through the 2019 budget.” She further noted that no class of people was living a peaceful life at present. “Onion, diesel, tomatoes, and sugar, all have become more expensive now.”
She underscored in her jibes on PM Khan, also the chief of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) by saying that “A man who has relied on others throughout his life cannot understand the problems of a common man”.
She added “A man who never worked hard in life cannot understand how roti (bread) is cooked in the home of a hard-working labourer!”
The NAB was hit by the leader of PML-N as well, saying the anti-graft body “doesn’t see past [former chief minister of Punjab] Shehbaz Sharif, Hamza Shehbaz, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi or Saad Rafique”.
She continued that the anti-corruption watchdog “doesn’t see the incumbent government’s ministers either”.
She added that “Imran Khan was brought into power. The Election Commission [of Pakistan] possesses proof against Imran Khan and the PTI”. She continued “Imran Khan lives in a 300-kanal house yet he pays Rs100,000 in tax.”
She also pointed out on how “no one dares bring this wanted man to the court stand”, and also talked about how the Bani Gala residence of Khan “was made without an NOC [No-Objective Certificate]”.
“Can anyone dare demolish Bani Gala?
Maryam said that “Not only should Niazi be told to go but he should be dropped home as well,” using the last name of PM Khan.
