Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Tuesday castigating Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and said that he was unable to see the country and people submerged in floods, as he only wanted to see himself back in power.
In a statement, the minister said that Imran’s actual problem was his personal ego, arrogance, self-righteousness, lust for power and corruption.
She said the former premier should first decide what he was fighting for: foreign conspiracy, real freedom, chief election commissioner (CEC) or NRO for corruption.
The minister alleged that the PTI leadership did not want real freedom but an NRO for their “real corruption”.
There was no foreign conspiracy, she said, adding that the PTI wanted an NRO for their “real conspiracy of foreign funding”.
Marriyum said Imran’s aim was not the general election but closure of corruption cases against him.
He was asking for an NRO by threatening and using abusive language, she said, adding that the PTI chairman was also seeking an NRO for Farhat Shahzadi aka Farha Gogi and Bushra Bibi.
She said Imran was a sick, mentality defeated and a corrupt person who was a liar, egoist and a selfish bigot who was asking for an NRO in the foreign funding of the PTI.
She said that the CEC had committed no crime, as he only announced the verdict in the foreign funding case, which had been pending for eight years.
Lashing out at Imran’s duplicity, she said that on one hand he had adopted the anti-US rhetoric and on the other hand he got services of a firm for lobbying in his favour in the US. She said the PTI chief had also held secret meetings with US dignitaries.
