Shahbaz urges Imran to stop ‘lying’ and show ‘threatening letter’


Soon after the prime minister’s address to the nation, Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly and President Pakistan Muslim League-N Shehbaz Sharif on Friday urged Premier Imran to stop “lying” and show the “threatening letter” to the nation.

“A person who is clinging to power is not a self-respecting person but a selfish one,” he said in a statement.

Shehbaz said that Imran Khan was attacking parliament, Constitution and the judiciary as he is in grief after losing power, adding that the premier has already announced the success of the vote on no-confidence today. “Imran Niazi has been proved a liar over the letter issue. Do not consider the people cattle,” he added.

Shehbaz said that the Supreme Court declared the ruling of NA Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri only after analysing the facts, urging the premier to contest the no-trust vote constitutionally.

He vowed to defeat Imran Khan in the National Assembly today during the no-confidence vote.

PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz, taking to Twitter, said that PM Imran has been sent home not by anyone else but his own party.

“If you like India so much then why don’t you move there and leave Pakistan alone.” Maryam said that a total of 27 no-confidence motions have been tabled against different prime ministers of India and none exploited the country’s Constitution like Imran Khan.

“Vajpayee lost by only one vote but still left the government unlike you who has taken the constitution and entire nation hostage.” Earlier in a couple of tweets Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif said that the economy has to be put on the right direction and the inflation-stricken people have to be treated fairly.

The PML-N president said “To restore Pakistan’s position and relations on the world stage on the basis of national dignity and interests, the test of leadership comes in the most difficult situations.”

He further said, “The no-confidence motion tabled at the request of 220 million people of Pakistan will prove to be an important milestone in bringing Pakistan out of the darkness of despair and problems tomorrow, God willing.”
