Pakistan’s civil administration proved all allegations of lethargy and inefficiency wrong when Maryam Nawaz asked Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah to arrest Imran Khan and a few hours later warrants for his arrest were issued.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz, while addressing a press conference in Lahore on Saturday evening, asked the minister why Imran Khan was roaming free after “stealing” cypher from the PM Office.

Maryam addressed the press conference along with party stalwarts, including Ishaq Dar, Rana Sanaullah, Ahsan Iqbal, Pervez Rashid, Azam Nazir Tarar and Marryium Aurangzeb in Model Town.

They were unanimous that PTI Chairman Imran Khan should be tried under the Official Secrets Act for stealing a cypher from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

They said that parliament would decide to invoke Article 6 against Imran and his abettors after consultations.

They said that audio leaks of the PM Office are a serious security breach.

They claimed that Imran had taken away the cypher from the PM’s Office by concealing it in his diary.

Maryam quoted the example of the United States where law enforcement agencies raided former president Donald Trump’s house and said it should be done here also and Banigala should be searched for the recovery of the cypher.

She said that she was surprised at the country’s system because the person who should be in jail was roaming free.

She contended that Imran was deliberately making the appointment of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) controversial by talking about this issue in his public meetings.

Declaring Imran as the biggest liar in the history of Pakistan, Maryam said if she starts exposing his lies, it would take hours.

“Many elected prime ministers and dictators came but the label of traitor only suits Imran Khan,” said Maryam.

Maryam welcomed Ishaq Dar and said the nation heaved a sigh of relief with a decrease in petroleum prices after a long period and hoped that the people will get more relief in the coming days.

Talking about the audios, she said the more people listen to Imran Khan’s audios, the more they will understand how big a conspiracy he had planned.

She said that the PML-N would not allow this ‘foreign-funded Fitna Khan’ to mislead the nation anymore. “The data of Prime Minister’s House was stolen, my audio was also leaked,” she said adding, “We will never hear anything against the country because Pakistan is our only interest.”

Maryam said that when Imran found out that he has to leave, he hatched a conspiracy of foreign interference for regime change. The recent audio leaks have completely exposed his conspiracy, which was the biggest lie of this century.

“The conspiracy has not been hatched by the establishment or the PDM, but the leader of this conspiracy is Imran himself,” she added and maintained that Azam Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Asad Umar were also involved in the conspiracy.

She said it was a pity that instead of taking steps for the betterment of people in the Prime Minister’s House, Imran hatched conspiracies against the country. She said she wanted to give credit to Asad Umer who raised objections on that occasion but Imran turned the cypher into a foreign conspiracy.

Maryam said that Pakistan’s sensitive document was replaced by forgery and later it was stolen from the PM House. “The original copy of the cypher is missing from the Prime Minister’s House. Like mineral water, the cypher was taken away because it is forged,” she stated.

She urged Imran to seek an apology from the people and his followers in front of whom he waved a forged letter for insulting the collective wisdom of Pakistanis and conspiring against the integrity of national security, foreign policy, and diplomatic relations.

She said because of this conspiracy, Pakistan faced a huge loss on the diplomatic front and its relations with friendly countries were also affected.

She said Lt Gen (retd) Zaheerul Islam and Lt General (retd) Shuja Pasha supported Imran and brought him into power after which Imran played with the country’s economy.

Criticising ex-finance minister Shaukat Tarin, she said the nation listened to his audio in which he was ordering the finance ministers of two provinces to write letters to the IMF so that funds might not be released to Pakistan.

She claimed that the PML-N has saved this country from becoming another Sri Lanka.

“Nawaz Sharif decided to go for nuclear explosions despite international pressure and threats and his action was ‘Absolutely Not’ in real terms,” Maryam said.

“The country’s institutions have been criticised and Pakistan’s forces have been made controversial, the real Mir Sadiq and Mir Jaffar is Imran.”

Maryam demanded the immediate arrest of Imran before he could cause irreparable damage to the country.

Responding to a question about the import of machinery from India by her son-in-law, Maryam said that machinery was imported during Imran Khan’s tenure and in accordance with the laws of the country.

To a question about an extension to General Bajwa, she refused to speculate and simply said DG ISPR himself has said that the army chief is not asking for an extension in his tenure.

To another query, she said the Sehat Card was started by Nawaz Sharif and she has not asked anyone to stop the health programme.

“Very soon Nawaz Sharif will return to Pakistan,” Maryam Nawaz said in a reply to a question.
