ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Central Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Sunday that the opposition would not stay mum as the people are buried under the inflation while PM’s sister Aleema Khan got an ‘NRO’ over billions worth of undeclared assets.
Responding to Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry’s statement, Marriyum said that he should feel ashamed of defending a PM who is a compulsive liar and takes pride in his U-turns.
The former information minister stressed that such crass statements by Fawad will not silence the opposition and they will ould continue to question the “group of accomplished thieves” running the government.
Marriyum said, “The opposition wouldn’t stop asking about the lofty promises of five million houses and ten million jobs for the poor, which the government has so far been unable to make any substantial progress on. The opposition would continue to question the billions worth of undeclared assets of PM’s sister Aleema Khan, the source of income for these assets and how were those funds transferred abroad.”
“The opposition would not be silenced over the disastrous incompetence of this government leading Pakistan into an economic crisis. The opposition would continue asking as to how many among these treasury benches are enlisted in the list of money launderers of over Rs 800 billion to ten countries,” she added.
She concluded that any minister or government’s indecent statement cannot shun the people’s representatives from voicing their sentiments.
