OKARA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz initiated her party’s election campaign on Monday with a public gathering in Okara.
In her address, Maryam Nawaz mentioned that PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif had entrusted her with leading the Okara rally. She criticized Imran Khan during the speech, accusing him of orchestrating and executing violent attacks on May 9. She also ridiculed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder for losing his electoral symbol, suggesting that it should be a “baton” instead of a bat.
Maryam Nawaz, the chief organizer of PML-N, went on to label the PTI as a group of terrorists, asserting that a terrorist group should not be granted a political party’s electoral symbol. She suggested that the PTI’s symbol should be related to the watch allegedly stolen or the petrol bomb thrown at police officials.
Referring to the PTI’s challenges, Maryam emphasized that they were facing the consequences of their own actions. She noted that neither PML-N nor Nawaz were seeking revenge from the PTI. Maryam accused Imran Khan of hypocrisy, stating that he, who accused others of theft, had himself stolen watches from the Toshakhana.
Maryam claimed that the influence to manipulate verdicts by contacting judges’ family members was no longer available, advising the PTI to ensure their lawyers were well-prepared for court appearances. She highlighted the changes since the 2018 election, stating that the facility to manipulate the RTS button was no longer accessible, and both the umpires and forgery were exposed.
Encouraging participants at the rally to vote for PML-N, Maryam asserted that the faster and more votes the party received, the sooner prosperity would come, inflation would decrease, and utility bills would reduce.
