‘PM sacrificed Buzdar to save sinking ship’

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz said Monday the time had come for giving Prime Minister Imran Khan the “final push” towards his defeat.

Addressing the joint opposition’s public gathering titled “Inflation March” against the PTI-led government in Islamabad on Monday night, Maryam, in a scathing attack on the prime minister, criticised his economic, governance, and foreign policies.

“Hearts and minds filled with arrogance are bound to meet the same fate as today [prime minister] Imran Khan is facing,” she added. Maryam said the opposition’s rally in Islamabad has been held to say “goodbye” to the premier as he had not only lost the confidence of the National Assembly but that of his party as well.

The PML-N VP asked whether a person who had “lost the confidence” of his party and the parliament was eligible to hold the prime minister’s office. “No,” she said.

Maryam said the party which loses by-elections, despite being in power, ultimately “faces a humiliating end”. Commenting on the March 27 rally held at the Parade Ground, she said the PTI was not even able to gather 10,000 people, let alone 100,000.

Taking a jibe at the premier’s decision to nominate PML-Q leader Pervaiz Elahi for the post of Punjab chief minister, Maryam said, “After seeing his government’s ship sinking he pushed Usman Buzdar into the water”.

The PML-N leader also mocked the prime minister for claiming that foreign elements were conspiring to topple his government. “International conspirators must have informed Imran Khan about their plot through black magic or delivered a letter through a pigeon,” she added.

She said that if there is a foreign conspiracy going on against Pakistan, “Imran Khan is the biggest facilitator of that conspiracy”. Maryam also claimed that a “shocking scandal” involving PM Imran will be revealed soon.

PML-N leader Hamza Shehbaz, addressing the rally, sounded an alarm on the spillover effect of any potential economic crisis in the country. “Defence expenditures are being met through loans… beggars cannot be choosers… so how can we make independent decisions,” he remarked while blaming the PTI-led govt for making the lives of the masses miserable through “flawed” economic policies.
