‘Lion’ will roar in Punjab by-elections, says PML-N leader

 LAHORE   -  Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz Friday said that the journey of real progress and prosper­ity would continue un­der the leadership of PML-N as the day of July 17 would bring victory for the party in by-elec­tions in the province.

She said that the li­on-electoral symbol of PML-N would roar in the by-elections as the people of the province would vote to the par­ty knowing that it could bring about real change.

Addressing the party workers in PP-168, she said the present coalition government had to take tough decisions includ­ing increase in petro­leum prices with heavy heart because of wrong­doings of the Imran Khan led past government. However, she said that difficult time had passed and the government had announced decrease in petroleum prices which would be followed by more reduction in the prices. She said that relief would be passed on to the masses im­mediately after petroleum prices would decline in the international market. The PML-N leadership had the ability to bring the country out of challenges created by previous incompetent and corrupt government of Paki­stan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), she added. The incompetence of the previous PTI govern­ment pushed the country into darkness and the people were facing power crisis. The pres­ent government was working hard to resolve the problems faced by the people includ­ing the loadshedding, price hike and others, she add­ed. Maryam Nawaz accused the PTI chairman of looting the mandate of the people of Punjab by handing over the charge to his “puppet” Usman Buzdar in 2018. She said that loot and plunder was com­mitted in the Punjab province at the behest of Usman Buz­dar while the looted money was sent to Bani Gala.
