This isn’t the first time Nawaz has been disqualified, says Maryam

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz, while referring to Supreme Court’s verdict on disqualification under Article 62, has said that this was not the first time that Nawaz Sharif had been disqualified.
Addressing a convention of her party’s social media workers, Maryam said that she got to know about the Supreme Court’s verdict while she was heading to today’s gathering.
She said that this was not the first time that Nawaz Sharif had been disqualified or punished, but the former premier “continues to be added, instead of being subtracted.”
The former first daughter said that whenever efforts were made to weaken Nawaz, he was strengthened more than ever.
“Nawaz was disqualified for life; he was barred from heading his party,” the former first daughter said. “But he resides in the hearts of the people.”
Maryam said that opponents tried to stop Nawaz for the past 30 years, but they could not succeed.
She said that a dictator had said that Nawaz has become a part of teh history now.
“Musharraf used to say Nawaz would not return, where is Musharraf himself today?” the former first daughter asked.
“Nawaz was sent into exile along with his family, made hijacker in the past. But he was not punished over corruption.
