Nawaz sharif disqualification was revenge not accountability

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz said that the disqualification of my father was revenge not accountability.

While addressing a women convention in Karim Park on Friday, she reiterated her earlier claims that Nawaz Sharif was disqualified because he did not take income from his son.

“Do you accept this unjust verdict?” She asked the NA-120 voters, adding “If you are against the verdict then vote for lion on September 17.”

“Support Nawaz, support progress,” Maryam said to PML-N supporters.

Maryam also hailed the role of female workers of the party and remarked: “The leaders whose sisters and daughters stand with him become invincible.”

“Isn’t the load shedding situation better than it was in 2013,” the former premier’s daughter asked the supporters while referring to PML-N government’s policy of progress and development.

Maryam is handling the NA-120 campaign while her mother and PML-N candidate for the by-poll, Kulsoom Nawaz, undergoes treatment for lymphoma in London.

By-election on the seat left vacant after Sharif’s disqualification by the Supreme Court on July 28, will be held on September 17.

A total of 44 candidates will contest the NA-120 by-poll.
