Marriyum believes people are head over heels in love with Nawaz
ISLAMABAD: The people were joining the caravan in big numbers out of their infinite love for Nawaz Sharif, who had been serving them and the country for the last 30-35 years, said State Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb.
Talking to a TV channel, she quashed the impression being given by the opposition that the people were being brought forcibly to attend the rally.
Marriyum said that Nawaz had strengthened the state institutions and had played a crucial role in the restoration of judiciary and that was the reason why people were yearning to have a glimpse of their beloved leader, who ruled their hearts.
The minister said that the number of people gathered by Nawaz within half a day, was far bigger than the people that the opposition was able to attract in all their mini sit-ins and sparsely attended rallies during the last four years.
She said that she could understand the mental condition of the opposition and pitied it, adding that they should accept the reality ungrudgingly and focus on serving the people of the province where they had their governments.
She said that only those people were taking umbrage at Nawaz's rally who had been involved in strikes, sit-ins and attacks on the state institutions, including parliament.
Marriyum said that after seeing the spirit and enthusiasm of the people there was hardly anything left to comment upon in the media. She reiterated that Nawaz had accepted and implemented the court verdict immediately, however, like every citizen it was their legal and constitutional right to differ with it.
