GILGIT: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz vice-president Maryam Nawaz insisted on Wednesday the incumbent Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government will go home before this year end.

Addressing a corner meeting in Nagar Khas on Wednesday, she said the Nov 15 elections were very important for the people of GB as they would decide their fate through their votes.

She insisted the Imran Khan-led government had done great injustice to her father and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

She termed Imran Khan a tyrant who had the ghost of revenge and jealousy in his mind, but she and her father faced the tyranny with bravery.

Addressing the participants of the gathering, she said: “You are brave people as you respect your mothers, sisters and daughters.”

Maryam Nawaz declared that Imran Khan did not know what was happening in the country as country was being run by others. She also came down hard on the government for failing to check the unbridled inflation.

“People from every corner of this country are cursing Imran Khan and his fake government for the current mess the country is in,” she said, adding people were unable to pay gas, electricity bills, fees of children and run their kitchens.

The PML-N leader insisted that Imran Khan was surrounded by thieves, and asked the GB people that they should not vote for a person ‘whose government was going to end’.

Ms Nawaz claimed that Nawaz Sharif was the person who could heal the people’s wounds, and asked the people to vote for him as he had brought huge development to the region.

“You should realise that you are not voting for PML-N but for your development, success, welfare, empowerment,” she said.
