Maryam Nawaz, daughter of former premier Nawaz Sharif, has come down hard on Prime Minister Imran Khan for what she called abusing the power to save himself from the no-confidence motion and accountability, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Sunday.

The anti-inflation march should be named Raddul Fasaad or Raddul Shatan, she suggested in a press conference in Gujranwala Sunday moment before Prime Minister Imran’s address to a ruling party’s public rally in the federal capital.

Flanked by Opposition Leader in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president said Imran Khan has been using the state machinery for his public gathering in a desperate bid to save himself from the no-confidence motion brought in by the joint opposition.

She said: “He has to be held accountable for such an abuse of power. He will be held accountable for using taxpayers’ money on his public gatherings.”

She went on to say: "This was not your family's money. This was the hard-earned money of the people of Pakistan … You spent on holding your public rallies in an attempt to hoodwink the people. This time he would not be escaped.”

She slammed him for not showing respect and manners while mentioning opposition leaders. “He has not learned to show respect and manners in 75 years,” Maryam maintained.

She rapped the premier for calling ‘rats’ the opposition leaders, alleging this is the ‘rat who ate up Pakistan’s development.

The opposition party leader lashed out at PM Imran for dubbing ‘diesel’ Pakistan Democratic Movement President Fazlur Rehman, saying: “He (Imran Khan) must be called diesel who hiked the price of this commodity to an unprecedentedly.”

His ‘own people have disowned’ him, Maryam said, adding that the premier deprived people of food by letting inflation go on a rampage.

She alleged the primer is delaying voting on the no-trust motion to maneuver support but to no avail.

Maryam questioned why he has not been responding to foreign funding saying that when the premier was held accountable for his misdoings in the case, he used "every means to save himself."

The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president said: "he is a coward and the Opposition will not let him run away."

She stressed that her party "does not believe in the umpire but believes in the people of Pakistan." 

She criticized him for capitalizing on the religious card to gain political mileage. She alleged he (Imran Khan) ran a bogus campaign against Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif.
