By Staff Reporter

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal lashed out Sunday at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan for seducing people by his words. However, he added that the former cricketer had mastered the art of disposing of people after using them akin to tissue paper. The federal planning minister named the people Imran Khan has enticed during a press conference in Narowal on Sunday. Iqbal went on to say that Imran may have used the same techniques with women and then with the wealthy. He said that if someone had $100 in their pocket, Imran's hand was constantly in it. "It has now been shown that Imran [Ahmed Khan] Niazi, who used to collect donations in the guise of Shaukat Khanum Hospital, used the money on his party's political operations and fooled with their members," the federal minister stated. "Imran Khan did not dare to file a defamation suit against the Financial Times, which was widely regarded as the bible of economics and finance," he claimed. "However, when a British daily published a report critical of Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister took the publication to court (and won), so why does Imran Niazi lack the bravery to take the Financial Times to court?" he questioned. Third, Imran enchanted the establishment. He used to go with Asad and tell the authorities that no one was more honest or pure than them, he claimed. Continuing the list, he said the fourth victim was the judiciary, lured by stories like the Panama Papers case, after which the Supreme Court judge told Imran Niazi to leave the streets and come to the courtroom.

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Sunday that the followers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran have become deaf, dumb and blind and they will not return to the right path. This she said in a tweet, quoting the 18th Ayat of Sura Baqarah in the Holy Quran with regards to the attitude of PTI leaders, workers and followers. She said Maryam Nawaz was right about Imran Khan. The minister said that it was unfortunate that on one had to even mention this sorry excuse for a human being who continued to stoop to new lows of misogyny. She said Imran had proven, time and again, that he was a misogynist who has no respect for women and that he considered them to be nothing more than objects to be abused and harassed. she said Imran has encouraged and inculcated this behavior and mindset both in his party members and his followers. She maintained that it was especially disappointing and sad to see female party members and followers of PTI not only condoning such behavior but partaking in it and celebrating it too. - PR
