Imran is mind game master: PM Shehbaz

Directs NDMA, PDMA to pace up relief activities in flood-hit Sindh

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Thursday said that Imran Niazi was confusing people by distorting facts, playing mind games and was insulting the intelligence of people through deceitful speeches.

In a tweet on social media platform Twitter, he said, “This is what self-righteousness does to you: you consider yourself holy & above reproach despite flawed conduct in office. You confuse people by distorting facts. You play mind games & insult their intelligence through deceitful ways. Niazi’s speech today was nothing but this.”
