rawalpindi - Former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that Sharifs are in hot waters because of rejecting his advice not to confront the institutions of country.

“I advised Mian Nawaz Sharif not to meddle with the army and the judiciary but he ignored my advice and put his ears to the advices of flatterers,” he said while addressing a public gathering at Dhoke Major here on Saturday. He lamented that the new delimitation had divided Rawat and Kalar Syedan, the two major areas of his constituency and vowed to reunite both after winning the elections.

Ch Nisar expressed gratitude to the people of Rawat for the respect and love they had given him. He said he had never told a lie like other politicians but believed in the politics of service and performance. He said he denied Imran Khan’s offer of tickets and decided to contest general elections as an independent candidate.

Meanwhile, the candidates of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Paksitan Tehreek-e-Insaaf and Jamat-e-Islami organized public rallies and held corner meetings in different parts of the city to muster public support for general elections 2018.

The candidates have pledged the voters and supporters to solve their problems after being elected on July 25, the polling day.

He said former Quaid of PML-N Mian Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif were put behind bars for raising their voice for the rights of the public and respect of vote. He said the whole N league is united under the wise leadership of Mian Nawaz Sharif urging public to support and vote for tiger (election symbol of PML-N) on July 25.

Senator Chaudhry Tanvir Ali Khan said PML-N has facilitated the masses at their door steps during its tenure. He said unseen forces are trying to push PML-N to the wall but the entire nation stands with Nawaz Sharif and his daughter.  “Tiger will win on July 25 with support and votes of people of Pakistan,” he said.
