Imran Khan, who deprived the people of jobs, electricity, gas and bread, was now closing down the roads, she maintained. The minister lashed out at Imran Khan for doing politics over floods and called him a “stubborn” and “fascist”. She said Imran Khan should have spent the money, which he was using for arson, on the rehabilitation of flood victims.
Marriyum said the money that Imran Niazi was spending on setting the country on fire should have been spent on providing food and warm clothes to the flood victims.
