Maryam Nawaz rains down on PM Imran in fresh tirade | The Express Tribune


ISLAMABAD:

In a fresh tirade against the government, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz referred to the prime minister as a ‘terrorist’ on Wednesday, accusing him of using institutions to threaten opposition leaders and put them behind bars.

“Not even gangs and mafias commit the acts that are being committed from the Prime Minister House,” Maryam said, in what appeared to be a reference to an interview of a former director general of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to a private media channel.

The PML-N leader’s remarks came as she spoke to the media outside the Islamabad High Court (IHC) this afternoon.

“Never in the [country’s] history have such heinous crimes been committed from inside the PM House,” she said, adding that, “Chiefs of institutions are summoned and asked to frame cases [against opposition leaders].”

Maryam went on to add that institutions were being used for political engineering. “Now”, she said, “people understand what mafias or gangs really are”.

She further stated that it was unbecoming of a state’s head to issue orders for someone’s arrest as if he were a gang leader.

Maryam lauded Supreme Court judge Justice Faez Isa for “fighting back conspiracies”, observing that the rulers “achieved nothing but defeat”.

She demanded the formation of a judicial commission to “investigate the conspiracy of a fake reference against the SC judge.”

“Imran Khan came to power after stealing votes, [and now] Pakistan is dealing with the miseries of lawlessness and unemployment.”

Pakistani passport and flights, Maryam added, are being banned. “There are piles of garbage in cities; there’s no such thing as governance in the country,” she raged on.

The PML-N leader further said that Imran Khan has failed, adding that, “The sooner the country gets rid of this government, the better.”

Concluding, she said , “This is the fight of the people for their rights and to rid themselves of an ineligible and enforced government.”
