ISLAMABAD – Responding to Imran Khan’s address at a public rally in Talagang, the Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Marriyum Aurangzeb said in a statement issued on Sunday that Imran’s tantrums and diatribes are a recipe for his political failure.

The minister said that Imran Khan should apologize to the nation and Almighty Allah for lying persistently, attempting to create chaos in the country and deceiving the people of KPK.

She said that the biggest problem of Pakistan was Imran himself and his biggest problem was development which he has been trying to obstruct. He is better advised to prepare for the 2018 elections, she added.

Marriyum said that Imran had taken upon himself the responsibility to hurl unsubstantiated allegations at the state institutions and to ridicule them. She said “The three times elected Prime Minister is answering questions about his three generations and when Imran is asked to answer issues related to him he impulsively resorts to hurling invectives at the state institutions.

“However, no amount of clamouring and crying can help his cause as he will have to be answerable to the people in the 2018 elections.” She said that Imran talks unabashedly about accountability notwithstanding the fact that the KPK Ehtesab commission was dysfunctional for the last one and half years.

The minister pointed out that Imran was crying hoarse to cover-up his corruption and incompetence and was working on an agenda to create chaos and discord in the country.

She said that people were asking what he has done in KPK during the last three and half years except planting two trees? They were urging him to show his performance instead of raising accusing fingers against others.

The minister said that there was still a chance for Imran Khan to abandon his negative politics and join hands with Nawaz Sharif for progress and prosperity of Pakistan. She expressed the view that if he continued with his crass politics, the day was not far off when he would also have to leave the country like his children.
