ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb accused the past regime of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) of selling gifts worth Rs 180 million from Toshakhana.
Talking to media in Islamabad on Friday, she said the PTI leaders were “looters’ and thieves” and the complete record of Toshakhana would be put before the nation.
Toshakhana is a department which keeps precious gifts received by the rulers, parliamentarians, and others from heads of other government / state, and foreign dignitaries as a goodwill gesture.
A gold-plated “Kalashnikov” was missing from Toshakhana and the precious gift would be recovered from residence of former prime minister Imran Khan in Bani Gala, she claimed.
Marriyum said PTI leader Chaudhry Fawad Hussain had already confirmed the selling of gifts from Toshakhana. They would be held accountable for not only for selling a watch from Toshakhana but also other precious gifts, she added.
She aid the PTI leaders, who ruled the country in the last four years, misled the nation on different matters by persistently feeding them lies. They had exposed themselves in the public who got acquainted with their “reality”.
Taking the PTI leaders to the task for creating illusion of the truth, she said, “They speak nothing but lies. It is spoken with such a consistency that it starts to seem truth,” she added.
The PML-N spokesperson said it was the first time in the history that “an imposed group” was ousted from the government through a no-confidence motion and with the “power of vote”.
She said Imran Khan had set the “worst example” of violating the Constitution, adding the Parliament and media were not only fully empowered, but also functioning freely after ouster of the PTI from the government.
