Lahore : Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday addressed a charged crowd in Zafarwal amid party song “Vote ko Izat Do” ,She lashed prime minister Imran Khan and his led PTI government saying that said “a person who never earned through his hard work” could never know how a common man survives while making Rs15,000 a month.
PML-N leader says ‘talk of an NRO did not suit coming from a person who is dependent on others for everything.she also visited a teenaged boy suffering from cancer, Maryam said if Nawaz Sharif had asked for an NRO, “a 100 NROs would have fallen into his lap”.
She claimed that the premier would be asking for an NRO-like deal for himself in a few days.
Criticising the budget , Maryam while referring to Prime Minister Imran “A man who has relied on others throughout his life cannot understand the problems of a common man. A man who never worked hard in life cannot understand how roti (bread) is cooked in the home of a hard-working labourer. Imran Khan lives in a 300-kanal house yet he pays only Rs100, 000 in tax,” she added.
Maryam said NAB was instituting another case against Nawaz for using bulletproof vehicles for his travel as the prime minister, but the bureau did not notice “Imran Khan using the KP government helicopter like a rickshaw while he did not hold any government office”.
Apparently referring to the reference filed against Supreme Court’s Justice Qazi Faez Isa, Maryam alleged that the premier had sent a reference against a “transparent” judge to the Supreme Judicial Council “because he is habitual of attacking from behind while hiding”. “If you have the courage come forward and say, ‘I have sent the reference’, say ‘I have set up the cases against Nawaz Sharif’,” she said while addressing the premier.
Maryam said the prime minister in his address had announced the formation of a commission to investigate the loans taken by the previous governments in the last decade but questioned why he did not want to go further into the past. “Do you not go back further than 10 years because it was the government of your master Musharraf then?” she asked the premier.
She said the loans taken by the PML-N government were spent on development projects and they were paid back with the profits earned.
“The crying and whining will no longer work. You will have to answer to the nation now,” Maryam said.
