The video has gone viral on social media and shows a party member apparently Uzma Kardar hugging her while congratulating her on becoming the first female Chief Minister of Punjab, putting her hand on Nawaz’s shoulder. Maryam Nawaz quickly pushed her hands away from her shoulder. And asked her not to touch her shoulders and clothes.

Maryam Nawaz quickly walked past her. Uzma Kardar was previously in PTI and joined PMLN later on. Netizens believe the behavior shown by Maryam Nawaz is against the humility she expressed in her speech at the Punjab assembly. Others believe the PMLN leader should have shown grace.

In a historic session of the Punjab Assembly convened on Monday, Maryam Nawaz of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) was elected as the province’s chief minister, marking a significant milestone as the first woman to hold this esteemed position in Pakistan’s political annals. Notably, her ascension to power was juxtaposed with the Sunni Ittehad Council’s (SIC) boycott of the proceedings.

Maryam’s victory, securing 220 votes in the wake of the recent general elections on February 8, underscored a pivotal moment in the country’s political landscape. Her adversary, Rana Aftab Ahmad of the SIC, failed to garner any votes due to the party’s abstention from the electoral process.

Addressing the assembly following her triumph, Maryam commenced her speech with a gracious recitation, extending congratulations to the newly-appointed speaker and deputy speaker. Expressing her desire for inclusive democratic participation, she lamented the absence of the opposition during the poll boycott but expressed gratitude to her party members, as well as to other political entities, for their support.
