MANSEHRA: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) Vice President Mohtarma Maryam Nawaz Sharif has lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying that, “A person who is incapable of running a union council has been tasked to run the country”.
Maryam Nawaz made this hard hitting statement addressing a gigantic jalsa in Mansehra, an area where her husband, Captain (R) Safdar Awan also holds immense popularity.
Addressing the charged crowds, Maryam Nawaz said, “Nawaz Sharif has deep rooted ties with Hazara and Mansehra […] you will not be able to deny Nawaz Sharif fulfilled his promises to you and lived up to the relationship he has shared with you. And he is paying the price of all that love he has shown you. So do you stand witness to the promises he fulfilled?”
“He promised a motorway. Did he not built it?” she asked, referring to the Hazara Motorway.
Maryam Nawaz claimed that those “who did not even install a brick had very cleverly put their own name plaque on projects”.
“Did anyone get a room even out of five million houses promised?” she asked, of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s promise to provide affordable housing to the poor.
Maryam Nawaz said that as long as PTI was in power, the poor people of Pakistan would not be able to run their households due to rising inflation.
Previously, the PMLN suffered a defeat in the Gilgit Baltistan elections where the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf came out as the party with the most seats despite opposition leaders crying foul over the results.
