MULTAN: Pakistan Muslim League-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Monday said that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)’s movement to send the ruling government packing had entered its final phase.
“Sending of COVID-18 home is essential before COVID-19. Coward ruler is trying to hide behind coronavirus. Imran Khan will be remembered as COVID-18 instead of prime minister,” said Maryam Nawaz while addressing the PDM rally in Multan. Pakistan Peoples Party leader Aseefa Bhutto Zardari and Jamiat Ulema e Islam-F chief Maulana Fazl ur Rehman were also present on this occasion among other leaders of the opposition.
The PML-N vice president said that grief had gripped houses of masses in country. They were aggrieved over roti price’s climbing to Rs30 from Rs10, she said. She said Nawaz Sharif had sacrificed his personal interest in favor of nation.
“We are unlucky that our enemy is low-esteemed person. Like other false promises, the promise of creating south Punjab was also a fraud,” she said adding that now people would impose lockdown on Imran Khan.
She scorned the government’s advances of trying to stop the opposition leaders from holding rally. She said coronavirus was genius that it did not enter a gathering of people below 300.
“People are aware of the virus which has been contracted by inflation. The disease which has been contracted by the country must be treated,” she said.
Taking a jibe at the government, Maryam said coronavirus did not enter the rallies of government and Jamaat e Islami.
“The country’s vehicle is being driven by incompetent drivers. What virus is contracted by the development of the country?” she queried.
Addressing the gathering, Aseefa Bhutto said that the people had ruled that selected prime minister would have to go now. She said that she was addressing as her brother and chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Zardari was tested positive for coronavirus.
She said she would take forward the mission of her mother former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
