Marriyum slams ‘vandalism, violence’ by PTI workers


Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Friday strongly condemned the alleged vandalism, arson, and violence by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf workers during their protest demonstrations across the country.

PTI supporters took to the streets in different parts of the country against the assassination attempt on party chief and former premier Imran Khan.

Soon after the Friday prayers, PTI workers protested in different cities of the country, chanting slogans against government officials including Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah.

“Those who have attacked the state properties and set the country on fire cannot be its well-wishers,” Marriyum said in a statement.

Referring to Imran Khan’s politics, she said the mindset of “foreign-funded Fitna” had polarised the nation. His politics of confrontation and chaos had inflicted irreparable damage on the country, she added.

She questioned why Punjab Police had so far not lodged the First Information Report of the firing incident.

According to law, she said, the government hospital authored a medico-legal report in a criminal case, but Imran Khan was doing otherwise. Marriyum said the “foreign-funded Fitna” wanted civil war in the country.

The minister said Imran Khan had waged the war against the country after it exited from the FATF grey list. Imran had also waged the war against Pakistan to prevent foreign direct investment in the country, she added.
