PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Thursday said that the Opposition’s efforts to bring a no-trust movement to topple the incumbent government is a risk that must be taken.
“The people are looking towards the Opposition [hoping] that someone raises their voice for them. The no-trust motion is a risk that must be taken,” Maryam said while speaking to the media in Islamabad.
She said that the people would hold the Opposition responsible if it doesn’t respond to their concerns.
Continuing her criticism of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the PML-N leader said that the premier starts speaking ill of other countries whenever he visits a country. “He ruins the [friendly] relations with another country on his way back to Pakistan,” she said. According to Maryam, Pakistan stands alone in the international community and not even its friends are willing to help. “Imran Khan didn’t only destroy the economy, but also the foreign policy [of Pakistan]. He went to China to ask for money but he couldn’t even get that.” Earlier, Islamabad High Court accepted a request by the National Accountability Bureau on Thursday, providing a month’s time to the NAB counsel to prepare for the Avenfield case. During a hearing on pleas filed by Pakistan Muslim League-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz and her husband Muhammad Safdar, newly-appointed NAB special prosecutor sought four weeks time to prepare the case against Maryam and Safdar.
