Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday told deposed prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan that he was not the subject of any foreign conspiracy but that his “own MNAs and MPAs sent him packing”.
“Imran Khan needed to rely on a fake letter and resort to a conspiracy drama to cover his government’s lack of performance during the past four years,” the PML-N leader told a public gathering in Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
“You were neither ousted by Nawaz nor by a foreign conspiracy, but by your own MNAs and MPAs,” she added.
Maryam, daughter of PML-N supremo and three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif, also said the nation of 220 million people would not let Imran hide behind his conspiracy claims.
She added that the people of KP will have to think carefully about who they wanted as the next rulers as it is linked with their progress and prosperity.
Maryam asked the people of the province to vote for PML-N’s Ameer Muqam and rid the province of Imran Khan in the next elections.
Continuing her tirade against the former prime minister, she claimed that he was a complete failure when it came to detailing his party’s performance during his rule.
On the deposed PM’s alleged criticism of state institutions, she said: “Why should Pakistan Army carry the burden of your filth,” adding, “You will have to carry this burden yourself.”
She went on to say that Imran lost his senses after he lost power.
According to the PML-N stalwart, Imran remained oblivious to the masses’ issues. “It will take two to three years for the incumbent government to undo what Imran did during his rule.”
She added: “Imran destroyed the economy and we found the country on a ventilator” after taking over the reins.
Maryam accused the deposed premier of misusing the state’s helicopter, looting the exchequer through Farah Khan – former first lady Bushra Bibi’s close acquaintance, who is under NAB scrutiny for her alleged assets beyond means – as well as Imran’s role in the Tosha Khana case pertaining to the gifts received from foreign states, and running his residence of Bani Gala on state’s expenses.
