TAXILA: Disgruntled PML-N leader and former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said that he is confident none can stop the “jeep on its path to victory”.
Addressing an election rally in Taxila, the former interior minister urged people to persuade more and more people to vote for jeep (his electoral symbol) to assure his victory as an independent candidate.
“We will beat all our opponents, not on one seat, but all four seats,” said Nisar.
Nisar criticised all his opponents by saying that even top political parties have not announced any plan to steer the country out of financial crisis.
“Pakistan is at the critical juncture of its history but none of these party heads have any plan to resolve the myriad of problems this country is facing,” said Nisar.
The rally was Nisar’s last as the two-month-long campaign by candidates and political parties for general election will come to an end at midnight tonight.
He repeated his grievances with PML-N by saying that he was asked to apply for party ticket but he refused for he hasn’t done it in past 34 years of his association with the party.
It is pertinent to note here that the former PML-N stalwart Chaudhry Nisar is contesting as an independent candidate on four seats – two National Assembly and two Punjab Assembly seats.
NA-59 (Rawalpindi), NA 63 (Taxila) and Punjab Assembly’s PP-10 and PP-12 will see Nisar contesting polls on ‘jeep’ symbol.
The new constituency of NA-59 comprises areas such as Chakri, Chontra, Saddar Baironi, Adiyala, Rawat and other adjoining areas.
