LAHORE (92 News) – Capt (retd) Safdar said that Nawaz Sharif has directed the PML-N workers to participate in the Azadi March to be launched by JUI-F chief Maulana Fazalur Rahman.
Talking to the media after meeting Nawaz Sharif in Kot Lakhpat jail on Thursday, he said that Maulana Fazalur Rahman would lead the nation. “It is not the sit-in, but Azadi March,” he said.
Capt (retd) Safdar said that Shehbaz Sharif could not meet his elder brother due to backache. “Nawaz Sharif has written a letter to Maulana Fazalur Rahman from jail and assured of the participation of his party,” he said.
He said that the march is against the 70-year-old system that didn’t let the country make progress. “We have thrice stated that the PML-N will participate in the Azadi March,” he said.
Capt (retd) Safdar said that the march would be against Tahaffuz-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwat, supremacy of the constitution, poverty and price-hike.
