Islamabad: Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Sunday trained guns at Prime Minister Imran Khan and accused him of making “false and unrealistic” promises to the people of Pakistan.
While addressing a rally of the anti-government alliance in Faisalabad, Rehman said, “PM Imran made ‘false and unrealistic’ promises of giving 10 million jobs. Instead, he [PM Imran] destroyed the country’s economy and rendered millions jobless.”
He said that he has never seen such a “greedy and stupid” person in his life, accusing PM Imran of selling an expensive watch given by a foreign country head as a gift.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N’s) Vice president Maryam Nawaz, who is a part of the alliance, also addressed the rally and slammed Imran Khan-led government for their mishandling of dengue fever in the country.
“The entire world is facing coronavirus, but now because of their [government’s] incompetence, people are dying of dengue,” Maryam Nawaz said during the rally.
In her remarks, Nawaz also hit out at Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government over the recent hike in prices of fuel and other utilities in the country.
“During Nawaz Sharif’s Prime Ministership, sugar was Rs 50 per kg, and now after three years, it had crossed Rs 120 per kg while electricity prices had shot up from Rs 10-11 per unit to Rs 25 per unit,” Maryam was quoted as saying by Dawn.
Earlier this month, Maulana Fazl had announced that the anti-government alliance is serious and strengthened in its goal of toppling the Imran Khan-led government.
