DE­LIVER IN YOUR OWN PROV­INCES FIRST: MARRIYUM TELLS PML-N OP­PO­NENTS

KH SAAD RAFIQUE SAYS IM­RAN IS NOT A SE­RI­OUS MAN; HE HAS NO WIS­DOM, COURAGE KH SAAD RAFIQUE SAYS KARACHI WAS ‘SLAUGHTERHOUSE’ BE­FORE PML-N’S TEN­URE

Pakistan Today (Karachi) - - FRONT PAGE -

IN­FOR­MA­TION Min­is­ter Marriyum Au­rangzeb on Mon­day said the coun­try needed a vi­sion­ary leader like Nawaz Sharif, who had trans­formed Pakistan into a mod­ern, de­vel­oped state in three and a half years. She ad­vised those who wanted to com­pete with PML-N’s lead­er­ship should first de­liver in the prov­inces where they were in power.

Ad­dress­ing the PML-N work­ers con­ven­tion here she said that the jour­ney to progress and pros­per­ity would con­tinue and Nawaz Sharif would be re-elected prime min­is­ter in the 2018 gen­eral elec­tions.

Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif was the most pop­u­lar leader of the coun­try, who en­joyed the sup­port of an over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of the peo­ple, she added.

Im­ran Khan dur­ing the past three years had only lev­elled base­less al­le­ga­tions against the prime min­is­ter, she said.

She said that Nawaz Sharif made Pakistan a nu­clear power, gave a net­work of mo­tor­ways, the first health­care pro­gramme, ed­u­ca­tional re­forms pro­gramme and above all the China-Pakistan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor (CPEC). The min­is­ter said that the op­po­nents— who could only gather a few hun­dred sup­port­ers in their ral­lies—knew that mil­lions of peo­ple came to PML-N ral­lies.

“To­day’s Pakistan was far bet­ter than the Pakistan of 2013,” she said, adding that now Pakistan stock ex­change was num­ber one in Asia and at num­ber six in the en­tire world.

She said it was strange that those who could hardly gather a few hun­dred sup­port­ers in their ral­lies were de­mand­ing dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion of the PM.

‘We are ready for ac­count­abil­ity for the third time, but Im­ran Khan should also be ready for it’

Mean­while, Rail­ways Min­is­ter Khawaja Saad Rafique in his ad­dress said the con­sti­tu­tion al­lowed ev­ery­body to send money to their dear ones from abroad.

“We are ready for ac­count­abil­ity for the third time, but Im­ran Khan should also be ready for it,” he said.

Saad said that he had never seen such a big liar like Im­ran, who would be ac­count­able for fund­ing to Pakistan Tehrike-In­saaf by the Jews and Hin­dus.

He said that Im­ran was not a se­ri­ous man, he had no wis­dom, depth and courage, adding that he could be­come ev­ery­thing but not a leader.

“Im­ran presents judges’ re­marks to the me­dia in a dis­or­gan­ised man­ner, but now he will have to de­cide whether he wants to pros­e­cute his case in the court, in the me­dia or he wants to stage a field in pub­lic. We are ready for ev­ery kind of com­pe­ti­tion at ev­ery fo­rum,” he re­marked.

“There is no king­ship in PML-N. Maryam Nawaz and Hamza She­hbaz are not our bosses. Our lead­ers have not taught us the pol­i­tics of al­le­ga­tions as this is not a ‘dar­bar of Bani Gala’,” he added.

Saad Rafique, while talk­ing about PPP said that Karachi be­fore PML-N’s rule was a ‘slaugh­ter house’, adding that da­coits ruled upon the prov­ince of Sindh.

“The five-year rule of Bi­lawal’s fa­ther was ex­tremely detri­men­tal for the coun­try,” he said, adding that Mushar­raf’s eight-year ten­ure was also of ‘sheer de­struc­tion’.
