Maryam slams Imran for ‘politics’ on women, children


Pakistan Muslim League-N senior vice president Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday lambasted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan, saying he was doing politics on women and children.

Addressing the Lahore Division’s workers’ organizational convention here, Maryam said that his party will contest the elections and win. “We will not accept selection like in the past. We did not get complete relief from the elements of conspiracies,” she added.

Lavishing praise on PML-N supremo, she said, “Nawaz Sharif is the leader with courage who protected his workers. Nawaz came from London and went to jail with his daughter in the bogus cases. That is what bravery is all about.”

She took a jibe at Imran, saying he was afraid to appear before the court from his residence in Zaman Park.

Maryam Nawaz said that “the PML-N is the only political party of the country which has the capacity and capability to protect the in terests of the country and the federating units”.

She said that the PML-N always gave respect to the nation, made economic progress and provided facilities to people. She said that Nawaz Sharif was the leader who had always protected his party workers and the people of Pakistan at large, while PTI Chairman Imran Khan was using women and children as a shield for his protection.

She said the PML-N youth were torch-bearers of the prestige of Pakistan. “I feel pride to see the spirit of youth and women who are looking determined for progress of the country,” she added.

Maryam said that people wanted to play role as a team for development of Pakistan under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif.
