LAHORE: As the general election inches closer, campaigning is in full swing.
While former prime minister Nawaz’ Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz is currently in London to tend to her ailing mother, a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supporter has taken upon himself to campaign for her.
The PML-N supporter on Monday took to the streets of Maryam’s NA-127, Lahore constituency with a lion — the electoral symbol of the party.
“I will run Maryam’s campaign and walk this lion every day in every corner of NA-127 till the polling day,” Mian Zia said.
Maryam is contesting the General Election 2018 scheduled for July 25 from National Assembly constituency NA-127 in Lahore and Punjab Assembly constituency PP-173.
The former premier’s daughter will be facing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Jamshed Iqbal Cheema in the NA-127 poll contest.
Earlier today, Newsone reported citing sources that Nawaz and Maryam plan to return to Pakistan in a week.
The decision to return to Pakistan was made after a consultation with senior leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) as well as pressure from some party workers, sources disclosed.
