LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief organizer Maryam Nawaz slammed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan on Monday and announced that elections would be held in October.
“Imran Khan’s plan to dissolve assemblies has failed, and elections will be held in October,” stated PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz during a ceremony commemorating International Labour Day in Lahore.
The PML-N chairman slammed PTI leadership, claiming that the current scenario is the fault of Khan and his entire team, adding that ‘Imran Khan’s gang’ was made up of the most corrupt people.
While referring to the recent ‘audio leak’ of former CJP Saqib Nisar’s son, she stated that the one responsible for disqualifying PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif is his son, who was caught collecting a Rs 12 million bribe for the party ticket.
“You demanded Rs12 million for the provision of an election ticket; how much did you charge to disqualify Nawaz Sharif?” she queried.
She stated that the minimum wage should be set at Rs 40,000 because Pakistan is progressing as a result of laborers’ hard work, and that a party with such a strong labor wing cannot be defeated.
Maryam Nawaz praised the prime minister’s decision to set the minimum pay, saying that while the PM has set the minimum wage at Rs 35,000 in these difficult economic times, the minimum wage for labor should be Rs 40,000.
She stated that Pakistani nationals work hard in foreign countries, but Pakistan has adequate capacity that labor does not need to move overseas.
