Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz left the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) raly in Peshawar after the news of her grandmother passing came from London.
In her short address at the PDM Peshawar Jalsa, Maryam stated, “I came to meet you but I just found out my grandmother passed away in London.”
The PML-N leader also requested the gathering to pray for Shamim Akhtar’s departed soul and health of Nawaz Sharif.
Begum Shamim Akhtar, 90, breathed her last on Sunday morning. Her condition had been fragile due to her old age.
(PML-N) leader Attaullah Tarar announced the sad news on Twitter and wrote, “Mian Nawaz Sharif and Mian Shehbaz Sharif’s mother has passed away.”
Tarar said Suleman Shehbaz informed about the demise of Shamim Akhtar from London via phone.
They also informed about the steps are being taken to shift her body to Pakistan.
Earlier in February, late Begum Shamim had departed for London to see her ailing son Nawaz Sharif.
On the other hand, addressing the PDM Peshawar Jalsa, (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the incompetent PTI government will have to “pack by January” as the rulers are not eligible to run a country.Bilawal lamented that the people who had been displaced due to terrorism and military operations against militants had still not been rehabilitated.
Residents whose family members had been killed by terrorists or whose houses and shops had suffered damages had not been compensated either, said the PPP chief.
‘PDM Deliberately Endangering Lives’
Furthermore, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday said that Pakistan will be compelled to go into a complete lockdown if the coronavirus cases continue to surge across the country.
However, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will be responsible for such consequences, the premier said.
Taking to his Twitter handle, PM Imran blamed the PDM for ‘deliberately endangering lives and livelihoods’ by holding jalsas despite ban on large gatherings amidst increasing COVID-19 cases.
