Information and Broadcasting Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb criticised PTI Chairperson Imran Khan for his scathing remarks against the chief election commissioner (CEC), saying that he is asking for an NRO (National Reconciliation Order) from him due to the foreign funding case.
“Imran Khan is venting his anger on [the] CEC. However, Sikandar Sultan is not like NAB [National Accountability Bureau’s] ex-chairman Javed Iqbal, who would be threatened and blackmailed,” said Marriyum while reacting to Imran’s statement.
Responding to the allegations of former prime minister Imran about buying votes for the chief minister election in Punjab scheduled for today (Friday), she called him a liar, hypocrite and thief who had stolen elections in the past.
“Imran used the money to steal votes in 2018 and then in the elections of Senate, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and Daska in Punjab,” she added.
Marriyum said that this was Imran Khan’s “political business” – to buy loyalties, adding that “his members in assemblies have also expressed no trust in him.”
The federal minister went on to say that Imran Khan wants a civil war in the country.
