ISLAMABAD: On Monday Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Maryam Aurangzeb demanded that Prime Minister Imran Khan should “at least apologise to the nation” for taking U-turns as he had repeatedly claimed that his government will not seek an International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout package.
She was referring to PM Imran’s earlier statement when he had criticised the PML-N government and said that “it would be better to commit suicide than to beg from IMF”.
The PML-N leader said that the opposition does not, however, want the premier to commit suicide for “it is a sin”. She alleged that the “government is incompetent and is trying to put the weight of its incompetence on the people.”
Moreover, she claimed that her party had ended the program with the IMF in 2015 in order to “lift the burden of inflation from the country” but the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government will now bring a “tsunami of inflation” for the people. They should at least be told how the prices for gas, electricity, and necessities will increase due to the bailout package, she demanded.
Further, she alleged that the premier did not have confidence in his own team so how is the nation expected to put their faith in his team.
