Maryam Nawaz criticizes PM Khan

Maryam Nawaz is also in Kashmir these days where she has time and again targeted Khan and has even gone as far as to target his family and kids. Criticizing PM’s visit to Bagh, Maryam accused that Imran Khan is just interested in the money and that he has found an ATM there.

“Just like flies gather on honey, Imran Khan goes to those with money in their pockets,” she said. Maryam has also talked about the possible rigging in the elections and has warned that the people of Kashmir will not forgive vote thieves.

During his election campaign, PM Khan has hinted at the possible referendum for the people of Kashmir to decide whether they want to join Pakistan or be declared an independent state.

He said that over his half-an-hour ride to the rally venue he was surrounded by immense beauty and it made him realize that if even a little bit of effort is put in, Pakistan can earn big from tourism.
