GUJRANWALA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Sunday defended party supremo Nawaz Sharif and said whoever her father meets in London “is in the interest of Pakistan “.
She made the remarks in reaction to comments Prime Minister Imran Khan made at the Parade Ground in Islamabad earlier in the day. The prime minister, without naming Sharif, said: “The nation wants to know who is meeting the man sitting in London?
Addressing her own gathering in Gujranwala, Maryam said Nawaz “is the son of Pakistan” and that her meetings in London “are for the benefit of Pakistan and its 220 million people”.
Referring to the dissident PTI leaders who gave a strong indication of their defection, Maryam said Nawaz was “the only bowler in the world to win 24 wickets from Imran on a single ball from London”.
Maryam said Nawaz was the first to say “absolutely not” to foreign forces when Pakistan carried out nuclear blasts under his government.
She slammed Prime Minister Imran for claiming he had ‘proof’ of the plot against his government, saying he [Imran Khan] should have revealed the “secrets” he decided not to divulge during his speech.
“He knows that the corruption cases against his government will come to light as soon as he opens his tongue,” Maryam said claiming that a Lahore-based woman, Farah, was allegedly involved in bribes on behalf of the government for transfers and assignments.
She added, “Imran continues to tell institutions that Nawaz will not spare them. You [Imran Khan] must bear in mind that these institutions, this country and the people belong to Nawaz Sharif.
Slamming the Prime Minister for insulting his opponents, Maryam said Imran Khan should be the first person to be called ‘diesel’ in the country, ‘because diesel prices have never been higher than during Mr. his government”. ”.
The leader of the PML-N alleged that Prime Minister Imran could not even gather an audience of 10,000 people during his public meeting in Islamabad against his claims to gather one million people. She told supporters of her party that Sharif and his brother Shehbaz would soon return “to change the fate of the Pakistani people”.
