Imran seeking NRO in secret meetings at Aiwan-e-Sadr: Maryam


Collects her passport from LHC

PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has claimed that former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan was seeking an NRO (deal) by holding secret meetings at the President House in Islamabad.

She was referring to reports that the former premier held a meeting with an ‘important personality’ at Aiwan-e-Sadr in the federal capital recently.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore on Tuesday, Maryam said the former premier was raising hue and cry after failing to get any relief from the powers that be.

She also called for dealing with PTI with iron first, saying the Imran Khan-led “foreign-funded party” should not be allowed to hold long march on Islamabad.

Maryam said the PTI chief should not be allowed to “attack” the federal capital with his “armed group”.

“An example should be made out of him [Imran] for hatching conspiracy against the country and attacking the state institutions,” she remarked.

Responding to a question about PTI’s narrative of real freedom, Maryam in Tuesday’s presser said Imran’s entire narrative is based on lies. “This is not a narrative but a fraud… shelf life of Imran Khan’s lies has expired,” she said. “Is [Finance Minister] Ishaq D r’s return [to country] not a slap in the face of PTI’s narrative,” she asked.

Maryam while highlighting the PTI chief’s hard-hitting statements against the establishment said the ousted premier would praise military when he was sitting in the Prime Minister’s Office. “Today he is calling them neutrals and using abusive language against them. Nawaz Sharif never used abusive language against she is soon going to UK to meet his fathers and brothers to whom she has not met for the last three years. She also said the she will have a surgery there as the same facility is not available in Pakistan.

Earlier, PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz has collected her passport from the Lahore High Court on Tuesday.

The PML-N leader collected her travelling papers from deputy registrar (judicial) at the LHC. After getting her passport back, she left the court premises. PML-N leader Pervaiz Rashid and Advocate Amjad Pervaiz also accompanied her.

Maryam had surrendered her passport on Oct 31, 2019 to the court in order to get bail in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills case.

The Lahore High Court in its verdict on Monday ordered the deputy registrar (judicial) to return Maryam’s passport when the NAB deputy prosecutor general apprised the court that no investigation was currently underway against Maryam so the bureau did not require her passport anymore.
