LAHORE: Mohtarma Maryam Nawaz Sharif lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, inventing a new nickname of ‘Tabedar Khan”, mocking the alleged compliance of Imran Khan towards the military establishment.
The Senior Vice President of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of stealing people’s money by allowing his friends to hoard basic commodities like sugar and wheat, whose prices have shot up in Pakistan.
“Wheat was stolen, sugar was stolen and the money went to this fake man’s pocket but no FIA or NAB took any action because the man is Tabyadar (compliant).
“I think we should now change Imran Khan’s name to Tabedar (compliant) Khan,” Maryam roared to the crowds gathered on the occasion of PML-N Social Media convention.
“If someone is very honest and competent, who served Pakistan a lot but if he is not compliant, then they are removed, and on the other hand, if the person is the world’s most incompetent man and Pakistan is destroyed but no one will say anything because the man in compliant,” Maryam said taking a dig at the alleged compliance of Imran Khan.
Maryam Nawaz accused Imran Khan of corruption in the LNG case which was imported at a delay, resulting in a loss of billions to Pakistan’s national exchequer.
While government officials apologised for this mistake, Mohtarma Maryam Nawaz Sharif held that this was done to help Imran Khan’s friends who bore the expenses of his kitchen and home when he was not in power.
Maryam also spoke about Qazi Faez Isa’s petition which mentioned the undeclared properties owned by Asim Saleem Bajwa.
“Can any court dare to ask Asim Saleem Bajwa, how you, a salaried employee became the owner of billions?” Maryam lashed out.
The young female leader said that even if no institution could dare to ask for the receipts from Asim Bajwa, the people of Pakistan would do so to ensure accountability across the board.
The opposition has strengthened its efforts the government in the backdrop of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) jalsa in Lahore on 13 December.
Senior PML-N sources have confided to this correspondent that the option of resignations from the assemblies is on the cards but it is still unclear whether the allied parties will agree to this strategy.
An MNA from Sargodha already submitted his resignation to the party leadership, fanning rumours of the implementation of strategy.
Mohtarma Maryam Nawaz Sharif remained busy on Monday, rallying supporters across Lahore.
Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that FIRs would be registered against the people who would facilitate the opposition’s jalsas.
