Nawaz says people’s thumb more powerful than umpire’s finger
LODHRAN: After euphoria of victory in NA-154 by-poll, Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s (PML-N) president Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif says he is sensing a ‘good atmosphere’ in days to come as the election is drawing near.
“When it comes to decision making, people’s thumb is more powerful than umpire’s finger,” he said while speaking to the workers convention in Lodhran.
Nawaz Sharif expressed his resentment with his ouster following court’s verdict and asked the rally participants: “Will you keep witnessing your elected PM facing this embarrassment over and again?”
In an indirect reference to Imran Khan, Sharif said the ‘blue-eyed’ [Laadla] said he would be learn lesson from Lodhran by-election defeat. “Have a fear of God; you lost the polls by 27,000 votes. Don’t ever feel yourself superior.”
“Every constituency of Pakistan will be turned into Lodhran in 2018 polls. Ladla (dear one in English) claimed that PTI would learn lesson from Lodhran defeat, but rather nation would teach him lesson now”, claimed Sharif.
He urged people to make ‘big decisions’ in the next general elections. He sounded confident that his party PML-N would emerge victorious in the polls, once again. The ex-PM also asked the participants: “Will you protect the sanctity of your vote [or not]?”
Would you allow your vote to be trampled upon like happened in the past, the former PM inquired.
Sharif said Hamza Shahbaz and Maryam Nawaz would again make it to Lodhran and interact with the locals there.
While extending verbal onslaught against landmark July-28 judgment, Sharif claimed that even corruption allegation of single penny does not exist against him. “When nothing was found, the apex court ousted me over receiving salary from son”, asserted Sharif.
While apprising goals achieved by PMLN-led federal government, Sharif claimed that they eliminated power cuts in just four years and restored peace in Karachi.
