ISLAMABAD: PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said on Thursday that the opposition’s attempt to mount a campaign of no-confidence to overthrow the current government is a risk that must be taken.
“The people are looking towards the Opposition [hoping] that someone raises their voice for them. The no-trust motion is a risk that must be taken,” Maryam said while speaking to the media in Islamabad.
She said that the people would hold the Opposition responsible if it doesn’t respond to their concerns.
Continuing her criticism of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the PML-N leader said that the premier starts speaking ill of other countries whenever he visits a country.
“He ruins the [friendly] relations with another country on his way back to Pakistan,” she said.
According to Maryam, Pakistan stands alone in the international community and not even its friends are willing to help.
“Imran Khan didn’t only destroy the economy, but also the foreign policy [of Pakistan]. He went to China to ask for money but he couldn’t even get that.”
Maryam requested PM Imran Khan to avoid making foreign visits. She said that the premier should be “locked inside a room of the Prime Minister’s House” for now.
Mariam asked all political parties, including the political allies of the ruling party, to stand up for the cause of the people, as this is a struggle between the people and power.
