Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz piled onto Prime Minister Imran Khan after the reported spat between him and Defence Minister Pervez Khattak, calling the PM a ‘liar, conspirator and cruel person’ who would soon sow the ‘result of his actions.’
Marayam Nawaz issued a statement on Twitter disparaging the premier, declaring that ‘this is just the beginning’ of the end for current administration.
“This is the fate of a liar, a conspirator and a tyrant […] For the sake of a few days’ prime ministership, getting your hands dirty with crime and becoming a symbol is a losing proposition. This is just the beginning” the PML-N vice president wrote.
At a meeting on Thursday, the Prime Minister allegedly sparred with the former chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Pervez Khatta, who had warned the prime minister, “We have voted for you to become the prime minister, but if your behaviour remains the same, then we will not vote for you the next time.”
Khattak and Noor Alam, two of the most ardent supporters of Imran Khan, had reportedly voiced concerns over the mini-budget, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) bill, as well as the country’s inflationary woes.
Speaking of his own constituency, Khattak decried the lack of gas availability in KP, despite the province being the country’s main producer of gas and electricity.
Prime Minister Khan purportedly tried to leave the meeting after Khattak’s remarks, announcing, “If you are not satisfied with me then, I will hand this government to somebody else.”
