Maryam Nawaz slams Imran for calling Hazaras ‘blackmailers’

Observer Report


PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Friday once again hit out at Prime Minister Imran Khan for not having visited the Hazaras protesting the killing of coal miners in the Balochistan’s Machh, and for suggesting they were “blackmailing” the premier.

Speaking at a press conference in Karachi, she said Prime Minister Imran had admitted that he was not going to Quetta “not because of a security threat but ego [and] his stubbornness”.

“The nation wants to know what was the problem which prevented you from going and putting your hand on their heads. If this was due to obedience (tabedari), then the nation wants to know is obedience more important than the people’s lives?” she said.

“If this is superstition then tell the nation so [it] knows the lives of 220 million people are not in the hands of any person or government but decided through superstition.

Maryam Nawaz:
“If this is insensitivity and ruthlessness then tell the nation so we know not to look towards you in crisis and [know that] you won’t come and call innocents as blackmailers,” the PML-N leader added.
