People rejected lies of Imran Khan: Marriyum

Violation of Constitution is treason, Speaker be prepared for punishment: PML-N

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday said the people had rejected the “lies of Imran Khan” by giving warm welcome to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior Vice President and Chief Organizer Maryam Nawaz at the Lahore Airport on her return from London.

The minister, in a tweet, said Imran Khan who was a plunderer of Toshakhana had received an answer from the people who accorded a warm welcome to Maryam Nawaz.   By giving a warm welcome to Maryam Nawaz without a call from party, the nation has proved with whom they stand with, she added.   The minister extended gratitude to the nation for turning out in a large numbers at the airport for welcoming Maryam Nawaz back to the country.

Earlier, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan remained in power for four years but could not prove a single allegation of corruption or wrongdoing against his political opponents.

Giving her reaction to Imran Khans statement, the minister said that in the Imran era, the political opponents were put behind the bars by blackmailing the National Accountability Bureau Chairman, but the allegations proved false in the courts, as they could not present a single evidence.  The minister while referring to the ouster of Imran from power corridors, said that now the country had been purged from the mafia and robbers.  Now just terming the opponents as thieves will not work, despite four years of all power Imran Khan had not been able to prove a single charge, she said adding all the courts of Pakistan threw his allegations in the dustbin.  The minister said that Englands National Crime Agency (NCA) and the British court also rejected Imrans allegations.

The PML-N leadership submitted 40 years of record and not even one charge was proved in the court, she maintained.

Taking a jibe at Imran, she said even if he established a court in Bani Gala and himself became a judge and a lawyer too, still, false accusations would not be proved.   She held Imran guilty of inflation, debt, economic collapse and unemployment problems being faced by the nation today.
