LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Monday assured disenchanted local leaders and party workers in the NA-120 constituency that their reservations will be addressed.
“The reservations of upset workers must be addressed and resolved,” she said, adding that a weekly contact with the constituency’s party workers and citizens is imperative.
Maryam also visited old Anarkali, and assured residents that the area’s issues will be resolved on a priority basis.
The former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter stood victorious in the NA-120 by-polls that she campaigned for on behalf of the PML-N candidate and her mother Kulsoom Nawaz, who was under treatment for lymphoma in London during the elections.
The 44-year old, who happens to be one of her father’s closest advisers, is a recent entrant in the political arena. Her successful campaign in the NA-120 by-polls is one of the most significant feats in her political career.
She has repeatedly quashed news of internal strife within the family and the party.
Despite the news of differences that recently emerged between Maryam and her uncle, Chief Minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif and his children, she has publicly praised her family.
