LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz Sunday said people have dismissed conspiracies against ousted premier Nawaz Sharif, as her party took a significant lead in the much-hyped by-election in NA-120, Lahore-III.
She congratulated workers and supporters for voting in favour of her party in the by-polls.
“I congratulate you PML-N tigers,” she said, while speaking to supporters in Model Town. “Nawaz Sharif called me, your mother called me before arriving here and asked me to thank people of the constituency.”
The PML-N leader said the people in the constituency have proven that they love Nawaz Sharif, adding that now it was the time for opponents to cry.
“Your 60 thousand votes equal six million votes. I know what’s happening to PML-N people for the last two days. Our supporters with their faces covered with black clothes were picked up,” Maryam told the crowd.
She said the PML-N was all alone in this fight, but defeated all conspirators.
“You took the brunt of the attack against Nawaz Sharif,” the former first daughter said, while hailing people of the constituency. “The people have rejected the verdict of the Supreme Court.”
She said the people have proven that Nawaz Sharif is still their prime minister, regardless of the SC verdict.
