Marriyum says PML-N being subjected to political vendetta

  • ‘Musharraf can’t even win election from his own street’

ISLAMABAD: State Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb has said that former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was a person who violated the constitution and was like a damp squib now about whom she did not even want to comment.

Talking to a private TV channel, she said that people like him even made those institutions controversial with which they had been associated. She said that he was talking about an alliance but he could not even win the election of a councilor from his own street.

Responding to a question, she said that the PML-N was being subjected to political vendetta and it would go the court of the people. To another question, she said that Hudabiya Mills case had been mentioned during the hearing of the Panama Papers case.

Marriyum said that the newspapers of Jan 8 to 10 had reported the remarks of a judge, asking a lawyer to appeal against it so hearing of this case by the same judge was not fair. She said that the same judge heard the Panama case and the kind of remarks he made about the Sharif family were known to everybody.

The state minister said that 13 judges and three courts had dismissed this case which was instituted during the dark age of the dictatorship for political victimization. She said that even then nothing had emerged from it and even now they would not find anything incriminating in it.

Answering another question, she said that the power of people was with Nawaz Sharif. She said that the next year was the election year and the PML-N would go to the people as its workers were fully charged.
