PML-N Spokesperson Condemns

PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb strongly condemned the government’s move of lodging a criminal case against the party workers.

Imran Khan, PAT chief Tahirul Qadri and several other leaders and workers were booked over their alleged involvement in the attack during the 2014 sit-ins in the capital.

Aurangzeb said neither the PML-N workers had attacked the parliament nor did they announce a civil disobedience movement against the government as Prime Minister Imran Khan had done when he was in the opposition. She said Imran Khan had also threatened to ‘drag the police personnel’ deputed at that time in Islamabad.

“Instead of abusing the government, the PML-N workers were peacefully accompanying their beloved leader Nawaz Sharif,” she said and lamented that registration of the FIR in the regime of ‘selected Prime Minister Imran Niazi’ would be remembered as a cruel decision.
