Marriyum castigates Imran for hurling allegations against Shehbaz


ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan for hurling concocted allegations of corruption against Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif involving a Chinese company.

She said that Imran Khan had to face yet another embarrassment after the Chinese embassy clarified that Chinese company Jiangsu Yabaite did not operate in Pakistan. However, she said that only those persons feel mortified who have a grain of shame in them.

The minister said that after the rebuttal given by the Chinese embassy, it was imperative to find out what connection Imran had with Yabaite.

Lamenting the irrepressible propensity of Imran Khan to hurl unsubstantiated allegations, the minister said that Shehbaz Sharif had been elected thrice as chief minister of the province and during his tenures he had made and implemented development projects of billions and trillions of rupees but even his staunchest enemies had not been able to point out any corruption in those projects.

Marriyum said that Imran had failed even to prepare a project on paper for KPK but had spoken lies worth billions and trillions of rupees.

She said that by hurling fabricated allegations against the Punjab CM, Imran Khan had attacked the right of development of the people of Punjab, particularly the people of Multan. Marriyum observed that though Imran was not expected to tender an apology but it was hoped that after having been proven as a liar, he would feel a little bit ashamed.
