Reacting to the revelations made by Tayyaba Gul, the woman who accused former NAB chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal of sexual harassment at the National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) meeting couple of days ago, Federal Minister for Climate Change Senator Sherry Rehman said on Saturday that after the failure of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) ‘foreign conspiracy’ narrative, now the party’s ‘accountability’ narrative had also come crashing down, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In a series of tweets, Sherry, who is also Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader, said that now even those who were quite close to former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan had now started speaking up against his government’s so-called accountability drive, calling it ‘vindictive’. “They are now testifying that under the PTI government, the opposition leaders were implicated in false and fabricated cases,” Sherry said, and added that the very slogan of accountability had turned out to be ‘hollow’.
“Truth of the matter is that Imran used the anti-corruption watchdog and other agencies for settling scores against his opponents,” she alleged.
The minister also demanded probe into the level of ‘interference’ made by Imran and his cabinet members in the accountability of the PTI’s political opponents. “Now those very people should also be held accountable who keep calling others ‘thieves and thugs’,” she demanded.
Imran built Gogi Raj, not Nya Pakistan: Shazia Marri
Federal Minister and PPP spokesperson Shazia Marri, on the other hand, said it was not ‘Nya Pakistan’ Imran Khan had set out to build, but ‘Farah Gogi Raj’. “PTI chairman’s ‘ugly faced’ has been laid bare by Tayyaba during the PAC meeting,” she claimed.
She alleged that the very man who had the habit of calling others ‘corrupt’, himself turned out to be financially ‘unclean’.
