    RAWALPINDI, March 16: In a bid to promote Maryam Nawaz – daughter of PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif – as a politician, the Punjab government issued directives to the district administration and universities to invite her as chief guest in all important functions.

    A senior City District Government Rawalpindi (CDGR) official told Dawn on Friday that the CDGR received directives from the provincial government to invite her at the functions.

    He said the provincial government has not yet allowed the CDGR to start the distribution of laptops among the students in the district while the students from other districts of the division have got the laptops.

    The CDGR planned to distribute 2,500 laptops among Fatima Jinnah Women University (FJWU) on March 3 by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif during his visit to the city but later changed the programme as the government was willing to distribute it through Maryam Nawaz.

    However, the function was still pending as Maryam was busy in some functions in Lahore and other parts of the province. The 2,500 laptops are lying in the office of commissioner and the local administration has to deploy policemen for the protection of the laptops.“It is the discretion of the provincial government to decide who will be the chief guest in the functions regarding launching of its schemes and there is no role of CDGR or education department,” said former Executive District Officer (EDO) Education and Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Rawalpindi Chairman Dr Mohammad Ashraf.

    He said the principals and educational institutions` heads were allowed to use their powers for the selection of chief guest in the low level functions.

    District Coordination Officer (DCO) Saqib Zafar said the selection of chief guest was not the duty of the local government and provincial government informed it about the personality.

    He said the laptops among the students would be distributed in the city after the availability of the chief guest – Maryam Nawaz.

    Former MNA and PML-N city General Secretary Haji Pervaiz Khan said the party was not organising a political function in the city in near future and if it did, it would invite Maryam Nawaz. However, he said he was not aware of any such directives issued to government institutions.

  • Noon league politic is always munafqana. They always use government to advance their politic and propaganda.

    Nawaz Sharif is made by Zia-ul-Haq and establishment. Now Noon league is using Punjab government to get attention for Maryam Nawaz.

    Perhap Noon league need a new face from Sharif family, after Hamza Sharif scandal with Aisha Malik. He already established himself as a awara and lofar.

    Noon league is trying to promote Maryam Nawaz. But she has one problem, she has bright attractive face for young boys but there is very little brain in her head.

  • ^^^ Just like those duffers Bilawal and Asifa accompayning their equally idiot father on foreign jaunts and calling upon heads of states at tax payers expense or that abnormal obese Bakhtawar clasping Nishan-e- Pakistan around Aun Su Ki.

  • sub chalta hai....mera sohna Pakistan

  • @siddiqi

    So zardari does it so it is good for nawaz to do as well?

  • Siddiqi Bhai,

    That was the weakest rebuttal from yet on this forum. Asifa does so does Maryam?

    BTW, Recent shenanigans of Shehbaz Sharif even put Altaf Bhai to shame!

  • though Shahbaz Sharif is doing well in central Punjab but they r advertising millions dollars schemes as trillions dollars i.e Laptops and 3,4 fly-over.. PMLn showing 100k laptops of 4000 millions as savior for youth.. It seems this scheme will totally change the future plight of Pakistani youth.. There r pamphlets every where in whole Punjab...All Sharif Family members r distributing Laptops worth only of 4000millions since 3 months and expected to 2 months more...

  • I wonder what goes through the minds of people like Ahsan Iqbal, Saad Rafique, Aitizaz Ahsan etc when they see things like this....

  • @Anas,

    Bro, rest assured that whatever they things for sure, dumping their parties and jumping on the inquilabi bandwagon is the most unappealing thought to them right now.

  • @Sidd..

    Its fine buddy, if they dont have the courage to stand up for themselves and for the principles they belive in, they deserve it..

    No one is asking them to join PTI or another party but stand up to whoever is doing these decisions is the minuimum you should expect from them..

  • FAMILY owned party hai what else u expect

    Why Pvt colleges dont invite her? :D

  • Pesa Punjab gov(tax payers) ka
