Will rebel against policies of disrespecting vote, says Nawaz in Bahawalpur


BAHAWALPUR: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nawaz Sharif on Friday slammed the trend of “disrespecting the vote” and said he rebels against such policies.

"No stone was left unturned to destroy Pakistan in the last 70 years…I rebel against whatever has been happening during the past 70 years," he said in an address to a rally here on Friday.

The deposed premier reiterated his objection to his disqualification by the Supreme Court and said he was sent packing because he did not draw salary from his son’s company.

Criticising political opponents, the PML-N Quaid said his party rid the country of major issues that no other party did.

"Has any other party built a motorway or power plants in the country," he asked.

Prior to Nawaz's speech, his daughter Maryam Nawaz slammed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan for entering into an alliance with the Pakistan Peoples Party for election on top Senate seats.

"Imran was crying hoarse his senators were sold to the PPP now he has donated all his supporters to Zardari," said Maryam while addressing the rally.

Slamming the PTI chief, she asked if true leaders sell their votes "in open market" when in their interest.

A day earlier, Nawaz’s daughter Maryam Nawaz addressed PML-N’s social media workers convention in Faisalabad where she spoke about contempt of court notices issued to leaders of her father’s party, saying contempt of court law cannot be used to defend weak and unjust decisions.

Maryam also spoke about National Accountability Bureau’s references against the former prime minister and said that the deadline for the probe body had expired.

She said that nothing has been found against Nawaz Sharif in the ongoing corruption cases in the past six months.
