Addressing a jalsa in Kotla town of Gujrat, Maryam said Khan had not blocked the establishment’s numbers, but the establishment’s number had changed while the people of Pakistan would term Khan a wrong number when he would go to seek votes.

She said the PTI chief should have called for a fresh election when he was in power instead of begging for support from the allies.

The PML-N leader said the next election would be held when Nawaz Sharif decides. She asked how Imran Khan would face the people in the election with zero performance during his tenure.

She said the game was now out of the hands of Khan, who was trying to escape the accountability of the public after his party government’s lousy performance.

Khan showed people false dreams: Hamza Shehbaz

In his address, Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz said that Imran Niazi is the name of that “coward who sometimes cries of a conspiracy and sometimes says that his life is in danger.”

He said, “Imran Niazi you are deceiving the people of Pakistan. These young people will bear witness that you showed them false dreams.”

He said that Khan had claimed that he would rather die by suicide than go to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), but he did not stand true to his words.

“You went to the IMF and never took your own life but the people of Pakistan died by suicide when they had to see their children hungry,” he said.

Hamza also announced to bring the sugar prices down from more than Rs100 per kilogram to Rs70 within 48 hours, adding that the ghee and flour prices would also be decreased.

He said his government did not believe in the politics of victimization. However, he warned Khan against creating chaos in the country through hate speeches as such a situation had been costing the public and country heavily.

He pledged free medicines for cancer patients and relief steps for other patients in public hospitals.
