LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) Information Secretary Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday warned Prime Minister Imran Khan against using religion for political gain.
Addressing party workers ahead of the start of the “Mehngai Mukao march”, she said Imran Khan would be held accountable for the consequences of exploiting people’s religious feelings for his petty, selfish and superficial political interests.
She said it was time to oust the ‘king of looters’, ‘captain of inflation’ and ‘gift of corruption’ as the motion of no confidence was the Pakistani people’s defiance of this incompetent tyrant and corrupt. She said the march was the consequence of nearly four years of unbearable inflation, unemployment, incompetence and corruption by the Imran government.
“Imran destroyed the national economy, broke the backs of the Pakistani people by stealing their sugar, wheat, flour, medicine and mandate. He sold Kashmir, and now he was hiding behind religion. He was using religion as a political tool, which is a dangerous and highly condemnable act,” she added.
Marriyum said the people of Pakistan are not asking for Imran’s faith and religion; they were demanding accountability for his corruption in sugar, LNG, gasoline, drugs and all other sectors of government that had pushed Pakistanis to the brink of starvation.
The former information minister criticized Imran Khan for using government resources for political rallies and public meetings to insult and insult his political opponents while declaring himself the religious saviour. She said Imran Khan claimed it was a battle between good and evil, but the truth was that it was the battle for the rights of the people of Pakistan that had been violated and usurped by the disastrous regime of Imran Khan. .
The people of Pakistan have decided to rise up against this government’s gang of looters, mafias and thugs, she added.
