PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Thursday urged party workers to pay no mind to “propaganda by the enemy”, saying that PML-N Supremo Nawaz Sharif and and PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif “are one”.
“This is a democratic party. Differences in opinion may exist. This does not mean that one raises questions pertaining to party leadership,” she said, addressing a gathering of workers belonging to the party’s Bahawalpur division.
“When it comes to the party leadership, everyone agrees with Nawaz Sharif as well as Shahbaz Sharif,” she said.
The gathering was attended by party secretary-general Ahsan Iqbal and senior members Rana Sanaullah and Khurram Dastgir.
Iqbal called upon the party to complete its current organisational objectives within 30 days. “Preparations for the election will help us prevent rigging in the future,” he said.
Sanaullah said that the government is “trying to drown out the voices of its political opponents”.
“We will not back down now and do not fear this fake accountability drive,” he said.
The PML-N stalwart said that cases that were made on “political grounds”, set back the country.
