ISLAMABAD – Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Monday that her predecessor, Fawad Chaudhry, and ex-human rights minister Shireen Mazari both agreed that the leaked tape belonged to former first lady Bushra Bibi.
Aurangzeb stated at a press meeting with Power Minister Khurram Dastgir and State Minister for Petroleum Musadik Malik that “both leaders admitted that Bushra Bibi is the mastermind behind the PTI’s social media team and false narratives.”
The PML-N leader claimed that the former first lady was leading anti-institutional campaigns. Bushra Bibi, she added, used the “international plot” to cover up her corruption.
Aurangzeb, shedding light on the growing energy consumption, stated that demand hit 30,000 MW in June, while generation was 23,900 MW.
