ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday said that the opposition has been paid in the same coin because PML-Q President Ch Shujaat Hussain has relayed the same instructions to his party members as had been conveyed by PTI Chief Imran Khan to his members during the time of previous Punjab chief minister election.
In her rejoinder to PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry’s criticism of the Punjab Assembly deputy speaker’s ruling, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Saturday that the PML-Q president instructed his party members not to vote for Ch Pervaiz Elahi. She contended that these were the same instructions as conveyed by PTI Chief Imran Khan during previous Punjab CM election.
“Imran cannot alter the law and constitution through his bullying tactics and by hurling threats and abuses,” she asserted, adding that if the ruling had been in favour of Imran then it would have been acceptable and if it had been in favour of Hamza Shehbaz, then it would have been wrong.
Ms Aurangzeb was of the view that Pakistan suffered irreparable loss due to lies and hypocrisy of Imran. The country could not make progress and has reached to the verge of bankruptcy during the previous regime, she lamented adding that the Bushra-Gogi mafia had been ruling the roost for the last four years.
She said that Hamza was re-elected in line with the direction of Supreme Court. She held that the apex court had assigned the right to decide about party vote only to party’s president.
She maintained that the PA deputy speaker rejected the PML-Q members votes polled in favour of Ch Pervaiz Elahi on the instruction of Q League head.
The minister said that the parliament has been formed through the constitution and it works according to the constitution.
