LAHORE: PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Tuesday took a jibe at her party’s arch rival Imran Khan and said that the PTI chairman, who used to claim that Nawaz Sharif’s politics and government had ended, is now accusing the PML-N supremo of ousting him from power while sitting in London.
“Until yesterday, he used to say Nawaz Sharif’s government and politics had ended. Today he’s saying that Nawaz Sharif ended his government by sitting in London,” Maryam said while addressing a workers’ convention of the NA-128 constituency in Lahore along with Punjab’s Chief Minister-elect Hamza Shahbaz.
Congratulating the PML-N workers for getting rid of the PTI-led government, Maryam lauded her party supporters for fighting against destruction.
Maryam told the former prime minister that the gifts he took from the Toshakhana and sold belonged to the state, adding that the PTI chairman did not sell gifts but “sold Pakistan’s ties with other countries” through the move.
“Imran Khan you will have to give answers,” said Maryam. She added that the PTI chairman will have to respond to the allegations linking him with Farah Khan, the friend of the former prime minister’s wife.
“Imran Khan, you will have to tell what relations did your wife had with Farah Khan,” said the PML-N leader.
The PML-N leader reminded the workers that the former prime minister used to claim that her father’s politics had ended but it was the PML-N supremo’s candidate Shehbaz Sharif who became the PM and Hamza who became the CM.
