Islamabad, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb while terming PTI Chairman Imran Khan a political terrorist said on Sunday that he was a symbol of country’s degradation.
Addressing the Muslim League (N) workers’ convention here, the minister said that all the allegations of Toshakhana thief againt the PML-N leadership proved bogus.
She said it was ironic that a person who did not start a single development project when in power, was blaming those who brought investment worth billions of rupees in the country.
The minister said that the Daily Mail’s apology to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif was actually an apology to the 220 million people of Pakistan. She said that Imran Khan in animosity of Shehbaz Sharif, used David Rose to publish a baseless news story against the PM.
She said that in 2016 during Nawaz Sharif era , Pakistan’s GDP growth rate was 6.2% whereas inflation was only 2.3%. IMF program was rolled back, CPEC projects were started and employment opportunities were being provided to the youth. Moreover she said that 14 thousand megawatts of electricity was being generated in the country.
The minister said that at that time a conspirator incompetent, inefficient and Toshkhana thief was waiting for the finger of the umpire and holding sit ins.
She said that Nawaz Sharif made the country a nuclear power but Imran Khan ruined the development process.
Marriyum said that Nawaz Sharif in his tenure eradicated the scourge of terrorism, but when Imran Khan came to power, terrorism rose its head again.
She said that Tosha Khana thief alleged that the PML-N leadership was involved in money laundering, but he could not give any evidence in the courts of Pakistan and the United Kingdom. On the contrary he himself was caught doing money laundering. Marriyum Aurangzeb asked that when will Imran Khan give an account of his theft? She said.
Imran Khan made the country’s treasury ” retail shop” during his time, whereas Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif was striving for the betterment of the people.
She congratulated Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and Federal Minister Ahsan Iqbal for emeeging victorious in the court cases.
She said that Hanif Abbasi was sentenced to 25 years in Imran tenure but he stood firm and even now standing firm like a lion. She said Imran took false oaths and put heroin case on Rana Sanaullah who stood strong like a rock and still standing like a lion with Nawaz Sharif.
She said that Imran embezzled the BRT money, abused the Chief Election Commissioner when the decision came against him.
He used to offer extension to the army chief in closed rooms but campaigned against the martyrs outside.
Imran Khan, she said appointed an incompetent, inefficient person as the Chief Minister of Punjab who damaged the province.
Taking a jibe on the PTI chairman, she said after 4 years in power, Imran claimed that he had no power, whereas he had Farah Gogi and Pinki with him. She said Imran Khan even sold a gifted watch carrying image of the Holy Kaaba.
She said in Imran Khan era, Nawaz Sharif used to come to courts along with his daughter and presented documents ofnpast 40 years in accountability courts to clear his name.
She said when Imran Khan was asked to answer for his wrongdoings, he got worried and appeared in public on the wheel chair.
During the address the slogans in favour of the PML-N leadership were raised by the workers of the PML-N who came in large numbers to attend the rally.
