Maryam Nawaz said people’s JIT will give its verdict on September 17 during NA-120 by-poll, a National Assembly seat which fell vacant after disqualification of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
“History will be made on September 17 as the people’s JIT will give their verdict that day which ‘they’ will have to submit to,” Maryam said in her speech mainly directed against the Panamagate landmark verdict during the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) workers’ convention on Monday.
Maryam, the daughter of the deposed premier Nawaz, urged the crowd present in the convention to become part of the history by supporting her mother, Kulsoom Nawaz, who is contesting on the NA-120 seat.
The seat fell vacant after the apex court’s landmark July 28 verdict, disqualifying Nawaz Sharif as the prime minister. According to the judgment, the PML-N leader failed to declare a salary, which he had not withdrawn as an executive of a Dubai-based company, as an asset when filing his nomination papers in 2013.
Of her mother, Maryam said she was standing up against the tyrants by contesting the by-elections.
“My mother stood up against the dictator of her times even though our family tradition did not allow women to go out of their home,” she said implying the Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s era when Nawaz was deseated.
She said people have already given their verdict that they are against the discrimination Nawaz was subjected to during the G T road rally by joining their leader in huge numbers.
“PML-N is spreading all across the country which is an encouraging thing for the party workers, for me and our leader, Nawaz Sharif,” she said.
