‘You’re part of the mafia that targets political opponents’, Maryam replies to PM Imran’s tweet
LAHORE (92 News) – Pakistan Muslim League-N leader Maryam Nawaz on Saturday responded to a tweet by Prime Minister Imran Khan and accused him of being part of a mafia that pressures judges into targeting and punishing its political opponents.
In a tit-for-tat response to the premier on twitter, Maryam said, “You’re a part of the mafia that pressurises judges into targeting and punishing your political opponents. It is you who used the institutions to settle scores with your opponents and defaced and maligned them in the process. Shame on you.”

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan took to twitter earlier in the day and apparently targeted the PML-N leadership, calling them “Pakistani mafia” and comparing them with the Sicilian mafia that used blackmail and threats to pressurise the judiciary and other institutions.
