TAXILA - PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan urged people not to vote for PML-N candidates as that would lead to their votes going to waste.
Addressing an election campaign rally in Taxila Cantonment on Thursday, the former interior minister said: “I am saying this clearly. Nothing will come of [PML-N candidates], not before the elections and not after”.
He said the political careers of PML-N candidates were over and that they should vote for the jeep instead of the lion or bat.
“We can only get through this [critical juncture] by joining hands for the betterment of the country. But I do not see that happening before or after the general elections. Every political leader has their eye on the prize of becoming the country’s prime minister,” he said.
Mr Nisar drew parallels with 1971 when, he said, the leaders failed in taking the nation into confidence.
“The country was also divided before the elections then, leading to the loss of East Pakistan,” he said.
Chaudhry Nisar said 14 of the people who had formed PML-N had left Nawaz Sharif and that the former premier had gotten into trouble due to his mistakes.
