Maryam’s moving court to fly abroad surprises Firdous


December 10, 2019

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to PM on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Monday expressed surprise over Maryam Nawaz’s moving the court for flying abroad, saying already Shahbaz Sharif, his two absconding sons, daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren were there to look after ailing Nawaz Sharif.

In a volley of tweets, she asserted that Prime Minister Imran Khan was waging a struggle for equal application of the law and added for doing politics, PML-N would dub the government fake while in case of its own interests, it would call it genuine. “It will tantamount to playing with the law, if a convicted person goes abroad merely for taking care of an ailing person. The prisoners in Pakistani jails reflect, why they are being treated with discrimination,” she maintained.

She claimed that those, dreaming of minus-Imran Khan were themselves, were being made irrelevant and presently on political horizon, there was a clash of two narratives: one is looting the national wealth and buying properties and palaces abroad through money-laundering and while the other is of Imran Khan, who is committed to the mission of bringing back home each and every looted penny from abroad.

“God willing, Imran Khan will succeed in his struggle to recovering the looted public money,” she made it clear.

Dr Awan claimed that the last plan to keep oneself relevant had also flopped badly and now they (Sharifs) must have plan to say goodbye to politics forever. “The stories of corruption of Sharifs are resounding. While agitation is contracted to the Maulana, their rehbar and other like-minded ones, whereas the plots and conspiracies to keep away the looted money and themselves are facing failure,” she noted.

“Those trying desperately to make themselves acceptable, through conspiracies should know that they are minus now from Pakistani politics. Making themselves plus through looted money should now return the looted wealth instead of making noise of minus one,” she asserted.

Special Assistant to PM on Accountability Shahzad Akbar challenged Shahbaz Sharif to even reply to one question that he had not only inducted Nisar Gill as director in CM office but also against rules, appointed him on a backdate. In a tweet, he alleged that Shahbaz Sharif also promoted him. “Replying to this question or this evidence will also be made public tomorrow, as the nation already awaits your replies to 18 questions,” he tweeted.
