PML-N Leaders Shehbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif Rally Support Ahead of Feb 8 Elections
On Tuesday, former premier and PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif pledged to prioritize public service if elected in the upcoming Feb 8 general elections. Addressing a public gathering in Ahmedpur East, Shehbaz vowed to elevate Ahmedpur East to the status of a district, establish a network of schools and roads, and fulfill all commitments made to the people.
As Shehbaz arrived on stage, he acknowledged the crowd’s cheers, engaging with his party’s candidates. Demonstrating solidarity, the PML-N leader commenced his speech in the Saraiki language. He expressed the intent to upgrade Ahmedpur East to a district and Uch Sharif to a tehsil if given the opportunity in the elections.
Recalling the PML-N’s past regimes, Shehbaz highlighted their record projects, including the establishment of a cardiology institute and Daanish schools in Bahawalpur. He emphasized the party’s significant contributions to information technology.
Shehbaz assured that no efforts would be spared for Ahmedpur East’s progress, citing the development of a road network during his brother Nawaz Sharif’s tenure as a three-time former premier.
Promising “exemplary projects” upon winning the polls, Shehbaz outlined plans for a state-of-the-art hospital, a university, and a college in Ahmedpur East. He also pledged to expand the network of Daanish schools.
Nawaz Sharif’s Return to NA-130: Rally Dynamics, Maryam’s Presence, and Election Outlook
In parallel, Nawaz Sharif, accompanied by his daughter Maryam Nawaz, returned to his home constituency, NA-130, Lahore. Conducting a rally from Bilal Gunj with police security, Nawaz’s public gathering initially witnessed a modest turnout in the narrow streets of Old Lahore. Contrary to common practice, there was no formal address to constituents, despite Nawaz’s return to contest elections in his constituency after 11 years.
Both leaders engaged with the crowd and waved in response to slogans. Maryam’s presence was seen as a message regarding the “real successor” of Nawaz. In NA-130, Nawaz faced limited competition as the PTI candidate Yasmin Rashid had been in prison since last year, and the party’s campaign seemed subdued.
The rally gained momentum as it concluded at Kacheri Chowk. Nawaz is scheduled to address another rally in Nankana Sahib on Wednesday.
