Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has on Sunday said that Bahawalpur at today’s PDM rally has decided that the days of the incumbent government are almost over and they should pack bags to go home.
Addressing the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) powershow in Bahawalpur, Maryam Nawaz once again lashed out at PTI government and asked do we call expensive electricity and essential commodities a change?
She further added that the PML-N party workers are continuously raising voice for the youth who was martyred in Islamabad by the police.
Maryam further targeted Prime Minister Imran Khan and condemned the terrible act in Balochistan, where eleven coal miners were shot dead.
She pointed out at the premier saying that he has doubled the country’s debt without laying a single brick for the betterment of the country.
Counting all the woes of the people due to the inflation, she said the International Monetary Fund, to make matters worse, has now “directed for the electricity prices to go up by 25%”.
“I feel your pain. Will the people of Bahawalpur make ends meet to feed their families, to pay their children’s fees, to pay utilities or pay for the treatment of the elderly at home?”
“This is why I want us to send this fake, incompetent prime minister packing who, after two-and-a-half years has thrown his hands in the air to declare he does not know how to run the country’s affairs,” Maryam said.
Maryam said that “what to speak of chicken, no one will soon be able to afford vegetables even”.
“Your daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif feels your pain and this is what brought us to you all today,” she added.
The PML-N vice president said that Punjab would be “taunted” for “not standing up for others” and other provinces would say that “unless Punjab stands up, things will not change”.
“Well listen here! Not only has Punjab risen, it is ready to take back the rights it has been robbed off. And when Punjab stands up, whose legs start shaking?” she asked the crowd.
“The selectors and the selected can see that the people of Punjab have now stood up.”
Maryam asked whether the “storm of inflation” must be considered the “change” that was promised.
Earlier, a venue was set up at the lawn of MPA Malik Zaheer’s residence, where the PML-N gathered first.
Addressing party supporters there atop a container, Maryam asked them to follow her to Seraiki Chowk in the form of a procession.
“Come with your daughter, your sister Maryam, to Seraiki Chowk, so Bahawalpur may also announce the end of this fake government,” she said.
