Now decisions will only be made by people's thumbs: Marriyum Aurangzeb

The information minister said the election Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified for holding mere an "Iqama" but no corruption was proved against him.

"You have proven that decisions are made by voters thumbs not the umpire's finger", he said.

Talking about the claims made by PTI nominee Ali Tareen and his father Jahangir Tareen before the election, he said, "These people made arrogant claims that we have already won the election and the only thing to determine is the lead of either 50,000 or 60,000 but their arrogance was rejected by Allah".

The former prime minister, who was disqualified by the Supreme Court past year, said the result of Lodhran by-election proved the sanctity of vote.

"They are saying that we will learn from defeat of Lodhran, but I tell them that now the people will teach you a lesson", he said.

The PML-N leader said Nawaz Sharif would address the people of Sheikhupura on Sunday (tomorrow).

Nawaz said that his political opponents did nothing other than telling lies and hurling false allegations, whereas his party served the masses.

"Despite owning lavish residences, vehicles and factories, they have sought exemption from returning the loan on political basis", he said and added that they faced justice in the by-election.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) renegade Member of the National Assembly Ayesha Gulalai has alleged that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had offered her a Senate ticket on condition of issuing statements against the Pakistan Army.

He also said that the result of Lodhran by-election will be seen throughout the country in the general elections.

Speaking at the workers' convention Nawaz stated he has been serving the masses since 1985, and after him Shehbaz Sharif has been serving the people.

He said Shahbaz Sharif had a major role in ending electricity loadshedding, as he got completed the projects within 20 months.

"The people of Sheikhupura will show their support to Nawaz Sharif tomorrow", he said. He also announced that Pattanwala underpass, Dunyapur bypass and Shahab Abu Tahir bridge would be constructed.
