Maryam Nawaz was addressing media in London/ Geo News screen grab

LONDON: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz leader Maryam Safdar said on Saturday that her father former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and her return to the country depends on Begum Kulsoom Nawaz’s condition, who has been on ventilator since weeks.

Maryam Nawaz was addressing media in London, where she said that the father-daughter duo are likely to return to Pakistan soon.

She said that the PML-N is being targeted, adding that it is not possible to keep the party out of the public’s reach.

Nawaz’s narrative has reached every house and the public knows whom to vote for, said the former first daughter.

The Pakistani nation will make a better decision for democracy, she said.

“It is Nawaz’s fear that those who didn’t work before have started delivering and those who have Nawaz’s hand over them will win. Our voters will vote only for ‘Lion’,” said Maryam.

Maryam also said she would return back to Pakistan on the first available flight as soon her ailing mother’s condition improves.

When asked about the National Accountability Burea’s (NAB) sudden proceedings, Maryam refused to comment on the matter.

Maryam will be contesting the forthcoming elections from NA-127 and PP-173 constituencies of Lahore.

On June 7, Nawaz and Maryam had sought a five-day exemption from appearance before accountability in the corruption references against the Sharif family.

On June 14, Nawaz and Maryam left for London to meet ailing Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, who has been under treatment for cancer since last year.

The former prime minister and his family members are facing three corruption references in the accountability court — Avenfield Properties, Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investments — in which they are accused of money laundering, tax evasion and hiding offshore assets.

Imran Ismail barred from entering from Mazar-e-Quaid

KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) governor-designate Sindh Imran Ismail was denied entry to Quaid’s mausoleum this morning, for carrying an excessive number of people in his ‘entourage’.

Apparently displeased with the mausoleum’s administration, Ismail tweeted: “We were denied access to Mazar e Quaid today for Fatiha, while PPP delegation led by CM to be was allowed & accompanied by Commissioner khi. With full CM Protocol.”

His tweet ended with a message in Urdu: “Abhi to deewar giranay ki baat ki hai” (we just talked about demolishing the wall(s)”. He made this statement in reference to recently-debated remarks of Imran Khan in which he had said to ‘bulldoze walls of governor houses in Pakistan to make them public spaces.’

Dignitaries and important figures pay visits to Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi on occasions like Independence Day and Pakistan Day (March 23) to pay homage to the founding father of the country.
