Lahore: Maryam Nawaz, the Vice-President of PML-N, paid a courtesy visit to the protest camp pf Baloch students set up outside Punjab Assembly, on Friday Morning.
Maryam Nawaz met with the protest Baloch students and condemned the treatment meted out to the by PTI government. “These students don’t belong to any political party, they are the future of Pakistan. Prime Minister may be incompetent but He can still try to do something for them and sort the students’ issues.”
Maryam Nawaz stated the students’ demands were legitimate and their right. She termed it “shameful” that the government was “neglecting the future of Pakistan”.

Around 40 Baloch students of Bahauddin Zakariya University (BZU) Multan had started their march from Multan on Oct 10 and reached Lahore on Oct 21. The students are demanding restoration of scholarships for the students enrolled at the BZU on the reserved seats for Balochistan and withdrawal of a fee collection notification issued in this regard.
Social Media users in Baloch appreciated this gesture of Maryam Nawaz.

Probably never witnessed something like this from PMLNs leadership. To understand Balochistan, you need to understand their grievances.Sit with them. Make them feel like your own. Things will eventually change when you come out on the streets for Balochistan as you do for Punjab. https://t.co/C2wpadL0Vo
