Islamabad: Maryam Nawaz, vice president of PML-N, mocked the government on Thursday, saying that those who tried to sabotage PML-N are themselves disintegrating.
Addressing a general council meeting of the PML-N, Maryam Nawaz thanked the party’s lawmakers for voting for PPP’s Yousaf Raza Gilani — the PDM’s joint candidate — during the Senate elections.
Gilani had pulled off an upset victory, beating Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh from the Islamabad seat by securing 169 votes. Shaikh received 164 votes.
“I pay tribute to all 83 parliamentarians who accepted Nawaz Sharif’s narrative,” she said. “Our parliamentarians observed discipline and voted for Yousaf Raza Gilani.
Maryam praised her father’s former prime minister Nawaz Sharif as a “trendsetter”, praised him, and said that whenever he decides to do something, PML-N is supreme.
“They say Nawaz Sharif’s narrative is too heavy for anyone to carry. The weight of Nawaz’s narrative was carried by the PML-N workers,” she said, adding that the slogan of “Vote Ko Izzat Do” was being accepted by people across the country.
