Maryam starts political activities today
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to field its Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif to mobilise party workers across the country, who will start his political activities today from NA-128 Lahore.
She took his twitter handle on Monday to announce that she is going into masses to activate and organise his party’s support on constituency level. “On the directions of Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif, I will start visiting different constituencies of Lahore from tomorrow, where I will meet party workers”, she wrote, adding; “I will remain available for workers tomorrow at the office of Shaikh Roahil Asghar after ‘Aftaar’ in NA-128.”
Meanwhile, responding to a party worker on twitter, she also announced that she will go across the country after Eidul Fitr and a schedule in this regard has already been prepared. Maryam Nawaz — the daughter of former prime minister and PML-N’s supremo Nawaz Sharif is considered a ‘mob puller’ among the party ranks and her bold style and clear stance is largely appreciated by the party workers.
Sources inside the party said that after the elevation of Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz Sharif as the prime minister and Punjab chief minister respectively, the PML-N left with no other option but to request Maryam Nawaz Sharif to play an active role to counter increasing public activities of ousted premier Imran Khan.
They claimed that the party wants to set its alignment for an ‘early elections’ which cannot be ruled out while on the other side PML-N also wants to keep its worker alive and intact. Sources informed that Maryam Nawaz will visit each National Assembly constituency in the remaining days of Ramadan and after Eid, she will go across the country for worker mobilization. Maryam is the second woman in Sharif Family after Kalsoom Nawaz, who is actively participating in politics. She stood by her mother during Kulsoom Nawaz’s brave fight to secure the release of both Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif and the family’s subsequent exile to Saudi Arabia in General Musharraf’s era but she was not on forefront at that time.
Says she will go across country after Eidul Fitr, schedule ready
Though her name was being whispered for involvement in family politics, when she was in Prime Minister House with his father after the general elections of 2013 however his first political journey in public was in 2017, when she came out to run the election campaign of her mother in the NA-120 by-election—a seat which became vacant due to the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif by the apex court.
After that, the lady appeared to be working hard to increase her worth as the new face that the party can rely upon. Now, she is a ‘brand’ herself and workers want to listen to her when speaks and respond when she gives a call. A senior party leader maintained that she is the only choice available in PML-N to counter Imran Khan if the party backs her in a full and final way wisely.
