LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice-President Maryam Nawaz has directed party officials to expand the social media team to spread the party's narrative among the masses, The News reported Tuesday. 

Maryam, who was appointed as the party's chief organiser earlier this month, has started meetings with the PML-N leaders after reaching Pakistan on Saturday. She is expected to actively participate in the election campaign for the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assemblies.

The PML-N leader chaired meetings of different party wings on Monday during which she directed her social media team to play an active role in stabilising the country.

Maryam met the social media team, members of the party's women's wing and youth affairs at the party’s central secretariat in Model Town. She also met party leaders Ali Zahid, Talal Chaudhry, Sadia Taimur and former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPA Uzma Kardar.

The party's chief organiser told the leaders that it was their responsibility to work whole-heartedly to make Pakistan a modern, developed, and welfare state. 

“Our seniors, under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif, set new standards of development in Pakistan,” she said adding that — in order to fulfil the responsibility — the youth and women should gear up to play their role now. 

Maryam said the PML-N was the only party which had the passion of serving the nation, and advised the social media activists of the party to expand their team and use all platforms on modern lines to convey the party's message to masses.

She also gave suggestions to improve the women's wing and said: “Women have always played a significant role in the victory of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and they will continue to play their role."

Appreciating the performance of the youth wing, Maryam suggested making it more dynamic and said that the youth wing is the backbone of the party.

“And today, many representatives in the assembly are playing a role in the centre and in provinces, and in future also, the youth will get more representation,” she added.
