F.P. Report

ZAFARWAL: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday while lashing out at Prime Minister Imran Khan said that you do not have the capacity to give National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) to anyone.

Maryam Nawaz said that PM Imran Khan would himself seek NRO after few days. She claimed that the world was recognizing Pakistan’s efforts during the PML-N supremo’s tenure but the rapidly developing country start downward trend soon after the 2018 general elections.

The PML-N vice president while accusing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) of stealing the elections said that the country ruined after PML-N government completed its tenure.

She said that new roads were being built and terrorist incidents in the country decreased during Nawaz Sharif’s tenure and the country was progressing but Pakistan’s downfall started soon after Sharif’s tenure.

The former prime minister was removed from office over iqama, she added.

Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Monday said that the PTI government has punished poor people of the country by presenting an anti-poor budget.

The PML-N leader heavily criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan by saying that he has no idea about how poor people of the country are hit by his government’s economic policies.

Maryam Nawaz said that her party Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz had won the last election convincingly before being burgled. “What was once a country climbing the ladder of progress is now on a downwards spiral,” said Maryam Nawaz.

Meanwhile, reacting to the speech made by the PML-N stalwart, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Firdous Ashiq Awan said: “Maryam’s speech is equivalent to stubbornness after corruption and looting, lying to the people in public gathering is a trait of PML-N leaders.”

“PML-N lies as a policy, they try to bury the truth with their lies,” added Awan.

Touching about the Supreme Court’s verdict on the ‘Panama Papers Corruption Case’ verdict, Awan said that the court have ruled them as compulsive liars.

Awan was then inquired about technical difficulties during the post budget national address by the Prime Minister of Pakistan to which she answered: “The technical glitch was due to inclement weather and thus the transmission was effected.”

Taking a parting jibe at PML-N, Awan said that the ‘N’ in PML-N signifies Na-Ehli (incompetence).
