LAHORE: PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz on Monday lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, warning the government that its days were numbered as she led a rally through various parts of the city.
The PML-N leader was addressing a charged-up crowd at a venue in Lahore’s NA-128 constituency, mustering support ahead of the PDM’s December 13 rally in the city.
However, Punjab minister Fayyaz Chohan reacted to the PML-N leader’s vitriol, saying that she was frustrated at the PDM’s lackluster performance in recent political gatherings and as a result, was attacking the prime minister.
Maryam mocked the prime minister’s statement from a few days ago when he announced that the government will not stop the PDM from holding its power show on Sunday.
“He [Prime Minister Imran Khan] says he won’t stop the government but says will not allow chairs [at the jalsa venue],” she said. “He says he will not allow tents. Lahore, tell me, do you need chairs?” asked the PML-N leader.
Without going into details, Maryam said the upcoming rally of the PDM will be a decisive one. “On December 13, it will be ‘Aar ya paar,” she said. “The Lahore jalsa will show that this fake government’s days are numbered.”
Maryam taunted the prime minister, saying that she had come up with a new name for him. “I have decided to call him ‘Taabidar Khan’,” she said.
She said the days of PM Imran Khan were numbered, adding that the “responsibility to remove him had fallen on the shoulders of Lahore”.
Later, Maryam made her way to other constituencies around Lahore as well, stopping over at the NA-124 to address a crowd and lead chants of “Hamza, Hamza” in favour of her cousin, Hamza Shahbaz.
