PM Imran hits back at Nawaz for maligning military leadership – DN
According to the source of PUNA, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday lashed out at former premier Nawaz Sharif for allegedly maligning the top army leadership, saying the PML-N supremo himself was launched into politics through the help of the military establishment.
His remarks came during an animated address to a Tiger Force convention in Islamabad, in which he dismissed the opposition’s power show of yesterday in Gujranwala as a “circus”.
Commenting on the speech given by Nawaz during the opposition rally, Prime Minister Imran said the PML-N leader was using inappropriate “language” against the army and ISI chiefs at a time when Pakistani soldiers were constantly sacrificing their lives for the nation.
The premier while describing the prevailing geopolitical scenario said the government of Indian Prime Minister During today’s media briefing, the information minister called the opposition’s power show a “flop show”.
“Their show of unity lacked unity, belief and discipline. The way that Maulana Fazlur Rehman — who is the head of their alliance — was made to address empty chairs I think it was made obvious that they don’t have a program or a way forward for the people.
“Those who didn’t accomplish anything during 40 years of governance, what will they be able to accomplish now?
They are here to empathize with the poor but when was the last time Maryam Nawaz interacted with a poor person? “What do they know about the poor and the problems they face?
They didn’t even have such people at their rally.” Faraz added that the result of a month’s worth of hype and speeches was a half-full stadium. “People left without listening to the speeches.”
The information minister also lambasted PML-N leader Khawaja Asif and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for using “inappropriate” language for women that were “not involved in politics”.
“[Bilawal] your own mother was in politics. Did you not realise that the language you were using may not be appropriate?”
Meanwhile, Chaudhry mocked the opposition for only being able to gather 15,000 to 18,000 people after spending millions.
“The population of Gujranwala is in the millions [and] the opposition was only able to gather 15,000 to 18,000,” he said, adding that the PDM president addressed empty chairs at two in the morning.-PUNA
