Read out and discuss ‘letter’ with parliament: PML-N

Maryam criticizes PM for claiming foreign elements behind no-trust motion

The former prime minister and PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi demanded on Tuesday that a session of parliament be called “immediately” tomorrow (Wednesday) and the letter which Prime Minister Imran Khan claimed during the PTI’s March 27 rally contained evidence of a “foreign-funded conspiracy” to topple his government be shared with parliamentarians. Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Abbasi equated PM Imran’s claim as a threat to Pakistan and demanded that diplomatic relations be broken with the country that had “threatened Pakistan” through the letter and its envoy be expelled. “This is how a sovereign country reacts when it is threatened,” he added. Abbasi also referred to federal ministers Asad Umar and Fawad Chaudhry announcing earlier in the day that PM Imran was willing to show the letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial and that its contents were linked to the country’s foreign policy.

“The opposition has grave concerns over some of the details shared by the premier and his ministers and there is a need to get to the bottom of these matters,” he said. “If the prime minister is speaking the truth, then this is how you should act … and if not, come to parliament and apologise.” “Threats are not made to a prime minister but a country,” he remarked. Therefore, he said, he was demanding that a session of parliament be convened on an immediate basis tomorrow and the letter be shared with parliamentarians.

Meanwhile, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz came down hard on Prime Minister Imran Khan for claiming that foreign elements were behind the opposition’s no-trust motion to topple his government. “Nawaz Sharif was thrice removed from the post of prime minister but he did not let national security be harmed. He did not make false accusations against anyone,” she said in a series of tweets on her official Twitter handle on Tuesday.
