Taking a jibe at the ruling party of the province, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), she asked where the ‘change’ is, referring to the party’s slogan.
“Nawaz will roar in the elections,” she said, and asked the participants of the rally to promise that they will take ‘revenge’ for the violation of their vote by voting for PML-N in the general election.Nawaz will now address the gathering.
Earlier, the former premier was at the residence of provincial party chief Amir Muqam, where he chaired an informal meeting with PML-N provincial assembly members.
Maryam’s address at the rally was the first of her ‘political career’.Preparations for the rally were completed earlier and fool-proof security ensured in and around the venue.
More than a thousand police personnel are deployed at the site of the rally, where scores of PML-N supporters from the province as well as Islamabad have arrived.
Talking to the media at the venue earlier, Nawaz’s aide Senator Asif Kirmani said they will turn the province into a den of the PML-N.
In his last address to a public gathering in Jaranwala, the former premier said his party will push its “political opponents hard” in 2018, so they are not seen again.
The PML-N president also touched upon the reasons for his ouster, a recurring theme in his recent rallies.
“Is it a crime to not draw a salary from your son?” Nawaz questioned the attendees of the rally. “I was ousted because of this crime.”
