Taking a swipe at Prime Minister Imran Khan, PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Sunday said that “he is a coward” and the Opposition will “not let him run away.”
Addressing a press conference flanked by the Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz in Gujranwala, minutes before of the premier’s address to a jalsa in Islamabad, she said, Imran Khan will be held accountable for using taxpayers’ money on public gatherings and criticised him for capitalising on the religious card to gain political mileage.
“This money was not of your family. This was the hard-earned money of the people of Pakistan which you splurged on holding public rallies,” she said while lashing out at the premier.
Maryam added that the premier “deprived people of food, while inflation reached the highest levels in the country.”
She also lashed out at him for abusing the Opposition leaders and delaying voting on the no-trust motion, adding that when the premier was held accountable for his misdoings related to the foreign funding case, he used “every means to save himself.”
