Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday (June 12) while addressing the PML-N workers, in Narowal, predicted that Prime Minister Imran Khan will himself seek NRO adding that time is not far when he will flee to London. She travelled to the district in Narowal to meet the 18-year old Zaki-ur-Rehman, a party worker suffering from thalassaemia.
“Nawaz Sharif’s victory in the 2018 elections was stolen from him,” Maryam Nawaz said, explaining how, under her party’s leadership, Pakistan was prospering, power projects were being set up, and terrorism wiped out. She went on to say the ex-premier was removed from power “over a joke of an Iqama issue”.
While talking about tax loaded budget, she said “Pakistani people are being given hell through the 2019 budget,” she said, noting how no class of people were living a peaceful life at present. “Onion, diesel, tomatoes, and sugar, all have become more expensive now.” She heavily criticized Imran Khan and said “A man who never worked hard in life cannot understand how roti (bread) is cooked in the home of a hard-working labourer!”
She claimed that at a time of need, the premier would abandon his countrymen. “This shameless person is congratulating his power minister over electricity load shedding, which was eradicated by Nawaz Sharif. This government hasn’t added a single megawatt to the national grid … he [PM Imran] is shamelessly inaugurating Nawaz Sharif’s projects.”
She also took a Jibe at NAB and said, The anti-corruption watchdog, she went on to say, “doesn’t see the incumbent government’s ministers either”. “Imran Khan lives in a 300-kanal house yet he pays Rs100,000 in tax.” Pointing out how “no one dares bring this wanted man to the court stand”, she talked about how the Bani Gala residence of Khan “was made without an NOC [No-Objective Certificate]”.
“Can anyone dare demolish Bani Gala? “Not only should Niazi be told to go but he should be dropped home as well,” Maryam said, using PM Khan’s last name.
She also poked fun at the ‘technical issues’ during PM Imran Khan’s Tuesday night state address and said “Naya Pakistan was in the process of being made when someone turned off the sound,” she said. Maryam was referring to the portions of the speech where the prime minister’s voice couldn’t be heard.
