Maryam calls for neutral establishment
Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif has spoken out in favour of a neutral establishment, saying it is a just demand of the Pakistani nation.
Maryam was giving a special interview to 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday. During her talk, she stressed the need for having a neutral establishment. She was of the view that it was a just demand of the people of Pakistan and it was as per the spirit of the constitution.
She deplored that they were still making a demand for neutral establishment after a passage of 73 years. “The neutral establishment should have been there since day one,” she added.
On the question of non-participation of Prime Minister Imran Khan in the National Security Committee meeting, she asked the 24NewsHD interviewer, had Imran participated in the meetings of Gilgit-Baltistan or Kashmir?
Maryam stated that Imran never participated in any national affair or issue. She said that the government claimed that the premier skipped the national security huddle as Shehbaz Sharif didn’t want him to be there. She said she wanted to ask Imran if he agreed to Shehbaz on other affairs? She remarked that government should fool somebody else by giving such foolish statements.
Before her departure to Azad Kashmir where she would open the PML-N election campaign, Maryam said that Imran Khan was ruling over 220 million people of Pakistan by usurping the power, how could he give freedom to the Kashmiris. “A usurper can only think about how to usurp,” she added.
Maryam felt sorry how Imran shattered the dream of Kashmiri freedom. She said she was going to Kashmir to console with the Kashmiri people as Imran’s treason had done a damage to the Kashmir struggle.
