PTI’s reaction to Maryam Nawaz’s audio leak

Needless to say, Maryam Nawaz’s controversial audio leak on the Sehat Card has caused a storm as PTI, along with its supporters, claims that the audio has exposed the PML-N government.

“This is disgusting. Convict-on-bail asking Crime Minister to stop Sehat Card which benefits so many people. Already Crime Minister stopped payment for Sehat Card in what was FATA so the KP government has taken responsibility. Clearly to undermine PTI, this criminal lot can make people suffer,” PTI leader and former human rights Minister Shireen Mazari tweeted.

“If it is true that the government would stop Sehat Card for 170 million Pakistanis just because of Imran Khan, then nothing could be more shameful. I can confirm that 6 million FATA residents were deprived [of the Sehat Card] from Jul 1 and that the Planning Commission asked the Ministry of Health to prepare options on a scale down,” KP Finance Minister Taimur Khan Jhagra tweeted. Pertinent to mention that Sehat cards were terminated in the tribal districts to the dismay of the local residents.

“Nani Ama [a nickname given to Maryam Nawaz by PTI] who performed cosmetic surgeries on the looted property from the nation, was caught issuing orders to end healthcard facilities for the general public. The facility is permanent, but another mischief of Nani came before the public. Indeed, Allah humiliates such people in this world as well,” former federal minister Zartaj Gul Wazir tweeted.
