PPP’s Sherry Rehman assails Imran economic mess

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: After the statement of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan that he had no authority in his nearly four years as prime minister tenure, Federal Minister for Climate Change Senator Sherry Rehman castigated the PTI chief, saying, “after destroying the country for three and a half years, Imran Khan has presented the charge sheet against himself”.

In a couple of tweets uploaded on Monday, the minister questioned why the man had remained in office for three and a half years if his government’s decisions were being made by someone else.

“If the prime minister was powerless, why didn’t he leave power and if the former army chief was a super king, why did you offer him lifetime extension?” Sherry asked.

“By putting opponents in jails, you kept taking credit for accountability,” she stated, adding “Now you say accountability institutions were also under the control of the former army chief.”

She remarked, “Have you forgotten that you used to announce the arrest of opponents in rallies,” adding “You are now actually crying over your incompetence and not of being powerlessness.”

Terming Imran Khan puppet Prime Minister, she alleged that no one else is responsible for the current economic catastrophe but only him. “Your fascist and evil government was removed through constitutional process and not through any conspiracy,” she claimed.
