Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb Saturday said that tomorrow’s by-elections in Punjab would bury the narrative and politics of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
“Today, Imran Khan admitted his defeat in his speech, the way Imran Khan was talking, it seemed that his language and mind were not under his control, and this only happens when a person is scared, defeated, rejected and failed,” she said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.
Taking a dig at the PTI chairman, she said Imran Khan was fully aware that these four things were in him, he had been rejected and failed, he had already lost the crucial by-election.
“The people of Punjab have declared war against the unemployment, inflation and economic destruction caused by Imran Khan who has given nothing but pain to the people in the country during four years”, she added.
She said that Imran Khan made all out efforts to push the country into a Sri Lanka like economic crisis.
In the by-elections, the PML-N will emerge victorious which always brought Pakistan out of economic crises and led it towards economic stability, she said.
The PML-N took steps to reduce inflation by taking people out of record inflation, and it was the only party that could overcome loadshedding and it freed the country from the scourge of terrorism, broke the back of the terrorists and restored the peace.
She said the PML-N brought the country’s growth rate to 6%, revived the ailing economy, and introduced the game-changing China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
The minister said Imran Khan knew that his government failed to produce even one megawatt electricity during four years, and could not build even one kilometre of road, and only made false promises of ten million jobs and five million houses.
He did not even build a university or a hospital during his tenure, which was the reason today he could not even mention a single achievement in his speeches.
Terming Imran Khan a habitual liar and a failed politician, she said he only knew the art of lying and misleading the masses. She said PML-N leaders Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif entrusted the responsibility of election campaign for Punjab bye-elections to Maryam Nawaz who fulfilled the responsibility in an exemplary manner.
She said according to the conditions and delimitation of constituencies in Punjab, the Pakistan Muslim League (N) had a clear edge there and owing to the wonderful campaign led by Maryam Nawaz, there was enthusiasm and spirit in the public meetings of PML-N.
She said no former ruler ever used their family women for corruption like Imran Khan, who used his spouse Bushra Bibi for converting Bani Gala to Money Gala whereas Bushra Bibi used her front person Farah Gogi for corruption.
The minister said Imran Khan gave lectures on honesty in such a way as if he was pious, but whenever he opened his mouth, he abused and threatened his political opponents.
Talking about Imran Khan’s tirade against Election Commission, she said it was the outcome of the frustration after rejection of his request for a secret meeting with the Chief Election Commissioner.
Moreover the PTI was attacking the ECP because the case of foreign funding had been reserved.
Today they know that fair and transparent elections are being held in the country, now there is no Farah Gogi and Buzdar in Punjab who can help you win the election by corruption, Marriyum said.
She reminded Imran that unlike Daska by-elections, now his party did not have the power to pick up Election Commission staff along with ballot boxes to rig the elections but now they have indulged in vote buying tactics by getting identity cards of the voters as Imran Khan and his party were addicted to election theft and rigging.
Imran Khan sent the youth of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to Punjab for mischief and hooliganism as he wanted to force brothers of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to fight for petty personal interests of this power-hungry man.
She said that if anyone indulges in hooliganism or tries to create chaos and anarchy, law will take its course.
She said that the people of Pakistan were politically conscious and they knew the reality of Imran who pushed the country to the brink of bankruptcy.
She said Imran forced the president, the speaker and deputy speaker of the National Assembly to violate the constitution and earned the dubious distinction of being sacked from power after transgressing the Constitution.
