“The solution for your problems is only one, and the name of it is Nawaz Sharif,” said Maryam, adding that it had been the PML-N government which made Yasinabad into a district, but it was not given its fair share by the incumbent government in Islamabad.

Maryam Nawaz said the government’s ship was sinking, it will now only see people getting off it and not on it.

Referring to the crowd present at the PML-N’s meeting, Maryam said that todays gathering was telling that the PML-N will win the election in Gilgit-Baltistan.

Accusing the incumbent government of withholding funds that were released for the valley, she said that it has been learnt that the people here were not even given their just share and compensation in the jobs that were created from the construction of the Diamer Bhasha dams.

Maryam added that no one had done what Nawaz Sharif did for the Diamer and Bhasha dams till date. She assured the gathering of PML-N members taking up the issue of jobs in parliament, adding that she will also raise her voice for the victims.

“PML-N is the only solution to the problems of the people,” maintained the party’s vice president as she urged them to vote the party’s candidates.

Maryam further said that, “Prime Minister Imran Khan and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are a disease that is afflicting Pakistan today and, unlike the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this disease will not go away by wearing masks, but will have to be thrown out!” The disease has hollowed the roots of the country’s institutions, economy, ethics and federal units, she added.

 

 

She expressed confidence that the people in the GB would not vote for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) as no one would board a sinking plane, but many will jump from it”.
