Marriyum calls for ban on Imran’s explicit speeches


LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Tuesday demanded the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to ban explicit and inappropriate speeches of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan.

Addressing a press conference at the PML-N’s Model Town Secretariat, Marriyum objected to the PEMRA’s decision of banning the PML-N campaign advertisement that highlights the indecent language used by PTI Chief Imran Khan in public speeches. She also questioned a number of acts that deny a level playing field to all parties in the lead-up to the elections.

Marriyum said that Imran has been using the same language since the past five years.

Commenting on PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif’s arrest in Avenfield case, Marriyum said the former prime minister returned to Pakistan to get arrested not go to Raiwind. “Nawaz Sharif was not even provided with a bed in jail,” she said.

She leader said that the party hoped the appealed would also be heard as swiftly “as the Avenfield verdict was given”.

She also said they will complain ECP about a video showing people removing party banners.
