Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday said that “jeep was turning into the electoral symbol of aliens”.
“The nation should set a target on the jeep and remember that those casting their ballot in its favour are voting for aliens,” she said while speaking to a private media outlet.
She also said that PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif had said that it should be investigated how those who had been supporting tiger joined the “jeep-brigade”.
“None of the party workers had switched their loyalties on their own, but all of them had been forced to do so,” claimed Maryam.
It is worth mentioning that the electoral symbol of jeep has been allotted to former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar, who will be contesting the General Election 2018 as an independent candidate. However, several other independent candidates have also been allotted the electoral symbol of jeep.
When asked about her plans to return to Pakistan, Maryam remarked that she will go back as soon as her mother, Kulsoom Nawaz’s, health improved. “Mian Sahab [Nawaz Sharif] and I are ready to go back to Pakistan.”
She further said that Nawaz had time and again reiterated that all institutions should operate as per the Constitution. “What’s wrong with saying that? The country should be run as per law and Constitution,” she added.
