Sher Afzal Marwat castigates Shehbaz Sharif over ‘mandate theft’


ISLAMABAD: PTI leader Sher Afzal Marwat on Saturday castigated PML-N nominee for prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif, over alleged mandate theft, vowing to continue the party s struggle until “recovery of mandate”, ARY News reported.

Addressing a PTI rally in Islamabad today, he said that the people of Pakistan gave the mandate to those – who were accused of orchestrating May 9 violence – wherein military installations came under attack following arrest of Imran Khan.

Lambasting his political rivals, Sher Afzal Marwat said that the public has exposed them all on February 8, regretting that PTI s mandate was stolen through Form 47. “The incumbent government s reality was stealing prisoner no: 804 s mandate,” he added.

He further said that Imran Khan was innocent but imprisoned for seven months, adding that the PTI founder s only sin was chanting absolutely not and striving for real freedom (Haqeeqi Azadi).

Marwat urged the Supreme Court to take notice of the violation of Pakistanis fundamental rights under the judiciary s watch.

“Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Parvez Elahi, Bushra Bibi, Yasmin Rashid, Sanam Javed, and other PTI leaders have been unjustly jailed for the past two years,” he told the protestors.

“We will continue our struggle and protest in the courts, parliament, and on the streets until Imran Khan is released and the recovery of our mandate,” the PTI leader concluded.
