PM Imran still suffering from Sharifs’ phobia, claims Marriyum


Referring to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s interview to a news channel yesterday (Saturday) in which he had blamed the Bhutto and Sharif families for the ills afflicting the country, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb claimed on Sunday that this man (PM Imran) had not come out of Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif’s phobia as yet.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, she said it was a pity that the man (Imran Khan) who did not have the capability to become even a police inspector was now the country’s prime minister.
Mariyyum said the soaring electricity prices, delayed completion of bus rapid transit (BRT) project in Peshawar and ‘drugs corruption scandal’ had laid bare the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government’s tall claims of good governance and transparency.
She alleged that expensive electricity was being produced from the furnace oil to ‘benefit’ the mafia associated with the business. The PML-N spokesperson said that a petition had been filed in the Supreme Court against the BRT project.
“But the government is blocking investigation into the scam,” she alleged. Hurling another accusation at the prime minister, she said whatever ‘corruption’ was done under Imran Khan’s nose was done with his consent.
She wondered how a man could point fingers at others when he himself had not explained his position with respect to the gifts given to him by foreign dignitaries. She condemned the tactics allegedly being used by the ruling PTI to rig the local government elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
