Soon after Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address to the nation, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz termed it a speech of a “person who has already given up”.

“I did not listen to it [PM’s speech] myself but have been told that it was speech of a person who has already lost,” she said while talking to the media along with Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari after a meeting between the two opposition leaders in Islamabad on Thursday.

She said that it appeared that Imran Khan was very angry over the result of the Senate elections. “He [Imran Khan] thinks he is still on a container [in PTI’s sit-in],” Maryam said.

On the occasion, Bilawal said that the time to send Imran Khan packing has come and added that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will decide “when and where” no-confidence motion will be tabled, hinting at bringing change in Punjab first.

“Imran Khan’s choice of words shows that he is nervous now,” he said, adding that the entire nation rejoiced the defeat to the “puppet” government.
