FAISALABAD: In an apparent jibe at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif on Friday asserted that the country s real youth stand by his party, not mummy-daddy type, ARY News reported.
Addressing a public gathering in Faisalabad in connection with general elections 2024, the three-time prime minister said that some people believe the country s youth support another party, but “that s not the case”.
“The real Pakistani youth stand by PML-N, not the mummy-daddy ones,” Nawaz Sharif, said, adding that he has no words to “thank the people of Faisalabad for this love”.
The PML-N supremo pledged Orange Line and employment for people of Faisalabad, asking how much jobs were provided by the person who pledged 10 million – referring to PTI founder Imran Khan.
He directed PML-N president that no one should be unemployed in Faisalabad after five-year term. “We will bring back the era when bread was available at Rs4 and petrol at Rs65 a litre,” he vowed.
The former premier said if he was not ousted in 2017, then fewer people would not be unemployed. “I don t make false promises, I m not the person who promised 5 million homes and didn t deliver,” he added.
Nawaz Sharif is the PML-N s candidate for prime minister as he has secured relief from court in multiple cases and following a Supreme Court judgment, he is also no longer disqualified from holding office.
On Wednesday, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif castigated PTI founder Imran Khan for attacking Pakistan s integrity to save his rule, saying that he never compromised national security despite being “subjugated”.
Addressing a public gathering in Haroonabad, the PML-N supremo noted that he had neither compromised the national security nor revealed any state secret to save his rulership – referring to PTI founder s cipher controversy.
“He [Imran Khan] hatched conspiracy and compromised the national security by revealing state s secret,” Nawaz Sharif said, adding that he “attacked” the country s integrity to save his rule.
