Ahead of 11-party opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) in Larkana on the occasion of Benazir Bhutto’s 13th death anniversary, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said the demise of Mohtarma Benazir is a national tragedy of Pakistan.
Addressing the large PDM Larkana gathering on Sunday, Maryam Nawaz thanked the masses over their warm welcome and also prayed for the departed souls of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.
The demise of Mohtarma Benazir is not a wound only on your hearts, but this tragedy hurts us as well, said the PML-N leader. She also paid a glowing tribute to the shaheed father-daughter duo.
She further added, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif was among the few people who was informed about Benazir’s death.
“I love my father’s ideology, I love my country, Pakistan,” she said, adding despite being political rivals, the PDM leadership is united on one stage as a family.
Further targeting Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Vice President said, “Imran Khan is himself screaming and saying I don’t know anything.”
Imran Khan is himself confessing that he is incompetent, Maryam said.
Referring to the premier, she said, “One person seems to be standing alone, failing and losing.”
She once again hit out at the government over inflation and allegedly hiding behind the establishment, telling Prime Minister Imran Khan he was not fighting the PDM but the entire population of Pakistan.
“Your war is not with PDM but with the 220 million people of Pakistan whom you have struck like lightning,” she said while addressing the premier, adding that the people had “won” this war.
