Maryam Nawaz charged rally at Faisalabad heats up political climate!

PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said on Saturday that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s opponents had suffered exemplary defeat as she hit out at the PTI-led government for the hike in prices of utilities and petroleum products.

Addressing a rally of the Pakistan Demo­cratic Movement (PDM) – an anti-government alliance of opposition parties – at Faisalabad’s Dhobi Ghat ground, Maryam said in Nawaz’s tenure [as PM], sugar was Rs50 per kg, and now after three years, it had crossed Rs120 per kg while electricity prices had shot up from Rs10-11 per unit to Rs25 per unit.

“There was a man named Imran Khan, who used to say when flour becomes expensive, when sugar prices rise, when rates of electricity and petrol rise, know that your prime minister is a thief,” Maryam said.

“So who is the thief now?” she asked a charged crowd.
