LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz has criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan and said that the person who chanted false slogans of corruption has turned out to be the king of corruption.
Reacting to the statement of Prime Minister Imran Khan given yesterday, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said that those who chanted false slogans of corruption themselves broke the record of corruption.
PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said that Transparency International, an international organization that identifies corruption, testified that corruption in Pakistan has increased under the incumbent government. Maryam Nawaz had said that there was a consensus on the long march and the government would not complete five years due to its actions.
A day earlier, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Sherry Rehman had said that Prime Minister Imran’s claims to end corruption are based on lies. She had said that corruption is on the rise during this government’s tenure and that Pakistan losing a few places on the global corruption index is a question mark on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government’s performance.
Pakistan has dropped down seven places on the list since this government came to power, she had stressed, adding that the world is now watching the story of the government’s wrath of corruption. “The focus is on NAB and the government’s political opponents, not corruption,” Rehman had said. Similarly, PPP MNA Shazia Atta Marri had said that in the past, PM Imran used to wave transparency reports and ask governments to go home.
