Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has alleged that the threatening letter brandished by Prime Minister Imran Khan during a March 27 rally in Islamabad was prepared at the Foreign Ministry and that the premier waved nothing at the rally but a blank sheet of paper.
Speaking at a press conference, Maryam said that the “main character” behind the so-called ‘threat letter’, former ambassador to the US Asad Majid, was transferred to Belgium a day before PM Khan came up with the ‘conspiracy drama’ to gain public sympathy.
She questioned why the letter was not presented before the Supreme Court and the nation. “In fact, there is no such [threat] letter,” she added.
“The letter was a drama that was why the ambassador [Majid] was transferred to Brussels overnight. This drama has completely been exposed,” she further said.
The PML-N vice president accused PM Khan of using the National Security Committee forum for his political narrative. She said that he claimed that the NSC was with him on the matter, but in actuality, it wasn’t.
Maryam further called on the military to come forth and clear the position on the matter.
