LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz Sharif, the daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, addressed a convention for Pakistan Muslim League –Nawaz (PML-N) social media workers here on Tuesday.
“Our opponents are scared of PML-N’s social media force,” Maryam said, adding that the social media team of the party was effectively spreading the ideology of Nawaz Sharif across Pakistan.
“PML-N’s social media has not only fought your (Nawaz Sharif’s) case on social media but also played a role in the NA-120 campaign,” she said.
Maryam said her father faced hardships because he chose the right path instead of taking the easy way out.
“Nawaz Sharif was attacked because he chose the right path over the easy one. He was attacked because he stands with his ideology, and his ideology is about respecting elected representatives,” she said to loud chants from her supporters.
There is no doctrine of necessity in democracy, she said and warned of “strict action” if any of her team members were “threatened”.
