“The politics of Pakistan has changed now,” she said while speaking to the PML-N supporters in Skardu. “I will become the voice of people.”
She remarked that votes should be cast in favour of people who have supported the party through difficult times. We will not vote for those who keep changing their loyalties.
The fake rulers will be sent home now. Those who can’t stand up for themselves, they will certainly not do the same for you, she said.
“We respect the Pakistan Army will all our heart. Only the people have the right to choose their rulers and no one else.”
The people of GB will vote during the region’s third election on November 15.
In the first election in 2009 the PPP won, followed by the PML-N in 2015.
