Sharif family angry with workers over muted protests against punishment. Mian Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Capt Retd Safar were sentenced by NAB court on Friday. However, there was no sign of protest in the country especially in Punjab where not even a single road was blocked which made Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz very angry. Maryam Nawaz snubbed leaders and has sought report from his close aides that whether anyone in the party is betraying them. Even in Lahore which had been a hub of support for the PML N, not even 200 hundred workers could be gathered. As per the sources, Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz had told office bearers and ticket holders of PML N to be ready for protests in Punjab in case they are sentenced by NAB court.
Nawaz Sharif, Ishaq Dar and Maryam Nawaz listened the court verdict in London and were hoping for wide scale protests and despite clear instructions of Maryam Nawaz, no protest in Punjab in general and Lahore in particular was reported. Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz have angrily responded to this and has passed message to leadership that it seems we have erred in distributing tickets. They said since no protest could be arranged, therefore, it is likely that you will not win elections.
Media cell employed by Maryam Nawaz sent videos of protests to Maryam Nawaz and in no instance there a crowd of more than 200 people. It has been reported that even in areas of closest aides such as Khawaja Asif, Khawaja Saad Rafiq, Danyal Aziz, Talal Chaudhry, Danyal Aziz, Rana Sanaullah, Mushaid Ullah, Abid Sher Ali, Miftah Ismail, Maryam Nawaz Aurangzeb and Ahsan Iqbal, no large scale protest has been reported. It has been told to Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz that you both have been sentenced, however, Shahbaz Sharif and Hamza Sharif are gearing up for election campaign where they are being showered with petals and greeted with music.
