Lahore (Staff Report): Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif addressed a convention for Pakistan Muslim League –Nawaz (PML-N) social media workers here on Tuesday.

Maryam said, “Our political rivals are scared of PML-N’s social media force,” she added that the social media team of the party was effectively spreading the ideology of Nawaz Sharif across Pakistan.

Maryam said, “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 her father faced hardships because he chose the right path instead of taking the easy way out.

She lauded chants from her supporters and said, “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.”

There is no doctrine of necessity in democracy, she said and warned of “strict action” if any of her team members were “threatened”.
