Imran Khan has become irrelevant in political system, says Marriyum Aurangzeb

Imran Khan has become irrelevant in political system, says Marriyum Aurangzeb

ISLAMABAD (APP) - Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Sunday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has become irrelevant in the political system.

In a statement, Marriyum Aurangzeb said that the government is trying to fix the catastrophe wrought by Imran Khan during his four years disastrous tenure. “Inflation, destruction of economy and foreign relations, besides historic debt are all Imran Khan’s legacy. The government’s focus is only on the problems faced by the people as we are committed to a clear agenda for the development and prosperity of Pakistan”.

 “Why should elections be held ahead of time because Imran Khan had lost power?”, she questioned.

Taking a jibe at the PTI leadership, she said that they had come to overthrow the federal government but left after announcing the overthrow of both their governments [in Punjab and KP].

The minister said though they had announced to leave the system, they were getting salaries as legislators and enjoying other benefits despite tendering resignation from the system.

“No ‘face saving’ can work for PTI as the public was fully aware of their real faces. Their acts of first resigning from the Assemblies and then filing petitions in the High Court, and neither returning the amount taken as salaries nor giving up benefits, vehicles and houses had exposed them,” the minister concluded.
