Maryam claims conspiracy was hatched to assassinate Nawaz in prison

BALOCH/PALLANDRI: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz claimed on Thursday that a conspiracy was hatched to assassinate former prime minister Nawaz Sharif when he was incarcerated in prison.

Addressing an election rally in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, the PML-N leader greeted the crowd on the behest of her father – who is in London since 2019 for ‘medical treatment’.

“The Baloch gave me the best welcome,” Maryam said, adding that she had the “Kashmiri blood” running through her veins.

Taking on the incumbent government, the PML-N leader accused it of being “afraid of Nawaz Sharif”.

She further added that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s morning started with remembering her father while his day also ended with him [Nawaz] on his mind. She claimed that various conspiracies were hatched against Nawaz and one of them was to assassinate him whilst he was in prison.

“They [the government] are conspiring to sabotage the projects made by Nawaz Sharif. After losing the case of Occupied Kashmir, their eyes are now on Azad Kashmir. Conspiracy to give Kashmir to India was also made in the United States,” she further claimed.

Maryam further maintainend that slogans of ‘respect the vote’ were echoing in AJK too. She accused the government for seeking election reforms now that it sees defeat in the coming elections.

“There is no RTS or any other machine for election reforms,” he said, adding that the day of reckoning was near.

“[PM] Imran Khan, these people will hold you accountable, if you try to steal the election, you will not be able to show your face anywhere.”

The PML-N’s vice president further stated that a conspiracy was being hatched to increase petroleum prices for the people.

“When the price of oil goes up, the price of everything goes up. This doesn’t matter to [PM] Imran Khan because he rides a bicycle to the office,” she said.
