Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday thanked the party supporters on victory of NA-120 by-polls.

While addressing his party's Youth Convention at Alhamra in Lahore Nawaz said, “I congratulate that you’re bringing Nawaz Sharif back with full force.”

After getting re-elected as PML-N president unopposed, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif said, “There have been attempts again and again to exit me, but you will always keep giving me an entry again and again.”

Expressing his gratitude to party workers for supporting his daughter, Maryam Nawaz , who campaigned on behalf of her mother, Kulsoom Nawaz , for the NA-120 by-poll Nawaz said, "Nawaz Sharif wants to kiss all your foreheads."

The former premier then recounted his government's accomplishments since the beginning of his tenure in 2013.

"Nawaz Sharif promised you that he will end load-shedding, and we have done it. Load-shedding today is on the verge of ending."

"Has any government before kept its promises?" Nawaz asked the gathering of supporters.

Nawaz once again reiterated his stance against his disqualification on Iqama and sarcastically said if they could not find any corruption and misappropriation of public money on his part, they should have told the people that they were going to oust him at all cost.

Earlier Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif said the entire country was focused on NA-120 by-polls on September 17 and Muslim League-Nawaz was victorious once again. He said that he could not visit NA-120 during by-polls electioneering as he was busy finding solutions to issues faced by the people including that of power outages.

As many as 18 hour-long power outages were exercised before PML-N assumed the federal power in 2013, he said. People are relieved of long hours of power outages today, only because of the efforts put up by the federal as well as the provincial government.

He criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan by saying that he took up ‘stay in the mountains’ when Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was hit by dengue crisis. He rhetorically asked Khan how many Mega Watts of electricity does Khyber Pakhtunkhwa produce.

While talking about Khatm-i-Naboowat clause in Electoral Reforms Bill 2017, the chief minister said that he recommended Nawaz Sharif to expel the official from the cabinet who is found responsible for alteration of the word in Khatm-i-Naboowat clause in Electoral Reforms Bill 2017.
