Polls dates to be decided by Nawaz, Maryam tells Imran

PML-N leader says she wants PTI chief to live to see Nawaz’s progress

Mockingly comparing former prime minister Imran Khan to a “spoiled child”, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Sunday said the ‘Kaptaan’ had lost the game for every.

“He (Imran) has been raising a hue and cry nowadays for being ousted from power,” she said while addressing party supporters gathered in Gujrat’s Kotla area. The PML-N leader told the deposed premier that his “game is over” and the PML-N was now in charge of the affairs.

“As his lettergate theory failed, he resorted to a new narrative, saying his life is in danger,” she added.

The PML-N leader accused the former premier of resorting to such tactics to avoid presenting a report card to the people over his performance. It is simply because, she added, he has no performance to put before the masses.

On the alleged life threats to Imran’s life, she said, “We don’t want you to die… we want you to live to see Nawaz Sharif’s progress.”

At the same time, Maryam asked Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah to find the video Imran was talking about to confirm the claims and provide ample security to the former premier.

She also took Imran to task for his criticism of the government over rising inflation and other issues. “If he wants to put the blame for his lack of performance over the last four years on us, we won’t let that happen,” she said, adding that Imran was in fact presenting a charge sheet against himself by doing so.

Maryam also mocked the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief for saying he had blocked the cellphone numbers of those representing the establishment, saying the way he was “crying” showed that the “establishment has blocked [his] number”. She said the number he was trying to dial had now changed. “Whenever you try to call on that number, you get the message that you do not have access to this facility,” she said.

Talking about the PTI’s foremost demand of holding early elections, she said, “Now elections will be held when our leader (Nawaz Sharif) will let us know from London.”

Maryam also censured Imran for using the ‘atom bomb’ reference for Pakistan and said, “I have never seen anyone saying that Pakistan should be bombed. As long as Nawaz Sharif is alive, no one can harm the country.”

Criticising the coalition government, the PTI chairman had said “it would have been better to drop an atom bomb on Pakistan than to have these people in power”.

Addressing the massive rally, Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz said, “If Imran is let loose with his rant, he will undermine Pakistan’s peace.”

He opined that the deposed premier deprived people of their jobs and was now bringing a bad name to the country with his unfounded claims of a ‘foreign conspiracy’.

On the occasion, Hamza vowed to bring down prices of commodities in the province, especially those of edible items.

He vowed to bring immense progress to Kotla, build roads as well as upgrade the educational status of the area. Referring to Imran’s claim that his life was in danger, Hamza said the former premier was a “coward” who “sometimes cries of a conspiracy and sometimes says that his life is in danger”.

“Imran Niazi, you are deceiving the people of Pakistan. These young people are witnesses to the fact that you gave them false hope,” he said. Earlier, according to the party’s Twitter handle, Hamza also visited the Aziz Bhatti Teaching Hospital.
