In yet another faux pas, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has accidentally retweeted, and then deleted, a picture of welcome of the late Tehreek-e-Labbaik (TLP) leader Khadim Rizvi, mistaking it for her own in.

As per the details, Maryam retweeted the picture of Rizvi’s welcome at the anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore, falling for the claim that the rose petals-covered roads were from Daska where she arrived on Saturday ahead of a by-election in the NA-75 constituency.

The election on February 19 comes after the seat fell vacant following the demise of the PML-N’s Syed Iftikharul Hassan Shah.


“Alhamdulillah,” Maryam had written while retweeting the picture that can no longer be found on her Twitter.

It wasn’t later when people, especially members of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), pointed out what was wrong with the tweet.

Earlier, Maryam said that the by-election in Daska was not just an election but a “battle”.

The PML-N has given ticket to late MNA Shah’s daughter Nosheen Iftikhar.

In her speech, Maryam blamed the government for rising inflation in the country.

“When their ministers are told that inflation has increased and people are dying of hunger, they say decrease your expenses,” the PML-N leader said, referring to Information Minister Shibli Faraz’s recent statement.

She added that the government had promised to create 10 million jobs in Pakistan but not a single man in Daska got any job.
