Prime News, International (Rawalpindi), July 16:- Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is currently lodged in Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail, has made an emotional appeal to the citizens of his country to exercise their franchise in large numbers and respect the vote, ahead of the general elections on July 25.
In an audio message, reportedly recorded in London, which surfaced on social media today, Nawaz Sharif urged voters to make July 25 a memorable day.
Sharif said, “Give respect to your vote. Pick up the national flag and go out [to vote in large numbers]. Make July 25 a memorable day. Spread my message across the homes, streets and villages [of the country]. Those who dishonour the power of the vote, defeat those conspiring such plans so that they will hang their heads in shame.”
He urged the people to pray for the speedy recovery of his ailing wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, who is undergoing treatment for cancer and expressed sorrow that he had to leave her in such a critical condition. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
