LAHORE: PML-N senior-vice president Maryam Nawaz said on Monday that she wanted her party to award maximum tickets to young men and women in upcoming elections.

Talking to a delegation of the party’s women youth wing here, she said: “It is my desire that my party awards maximum tickets to young men and women in forthcoming elections. The youth is the future of Pakistan.”

Since the youth is more attracted to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan, the PML-N is paying special attention to woo it. Maryam Nawaz has been active in this regard and held a good number of meetings with the youth of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Maryam Nawaz blamed the current wave of price hike and inflation on the previous PTI government. She said her father Nawaz Sharif would once again save the people of Pakistan from inflation and inflated electricity bills.

“Today’s problems stemmed from Project Imran. The people would not have faced that many problems if Nawaz Sharif had not been ousted (from power),” she said and added the way the PML-N had saved the country from default, now it would save it from inflation after coming to power.
