Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb Tuesday alleged that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was a “bluff master who is trying to return to power through blackmailing and intimidation”.
“It is not possible for you (Imran Khan) to get power (back) through blackmailing, bluff and lies,” the minister said in a statement while reacting to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman’s remarks.
“Those who were advising (us) on (striking) a balance in the civil-military relationship should better care about Imran’s mental health,” she said while referring to Chaudhry Fawad Hussain’s statement.
Imran Khan first hurled allegations and then resorted to giving clarifications, showing that his mental condition was in disarray, she added. “The PTI chief is a coward… he should name the persons who are threatening him and his party leaders”.
The minister said Imran Khan had assumed that he could frighten Maryam Nawaz by sending her to jail, but, in fact, he was afraid of her growing popularity among the masses. It was astonishing that Imran Khan, who was obsessed with the Sharif family, was talking about ‘Haqeeqi Azadi’ (real freedom), she added.
He (Imran) should be put under medical observation as Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s successful foreign visits might have an adverse impact on his health, she added.
Regarding Imran Khan’s plan for another march on Islamabad, she said he (Imran) had abandoned his workers in the midway after giving a call for the long march on May 25. “He is begging for support while his spokespersons are giving clarifications,” she concluded.
