PTI Chairperson Imran Khan was threatening the ‘establishment’ when he claimed that he had recognised the ‘Mir Jaffars and Mir Sadiqs’ of the country, said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz.

The ousted premier used derogatory language against the judges and the judiciary after a verdict came against him but praised them when they announced verdicts in his favour, she said while addressing a press conference.

“Imran Khan launched an abusive campaign on social media against the judiciary and the judges after they issued a historic verdict restoring the National Assembly,” she said.

Speaking about Khan’s claims of ‘foreign conspiracy’ the PML-N vice president asked the former premier why he didn’t mention the said ‘conspiracy’ against his government while being interviewed by CNN.

“He [Imran Khan] said during his interview with the US-based CNN that President Joe Biden didn’t engage with him, however, he didn’t mention that the foreign conspiracy was hatched in the US against him during his interview,” she said.

PTI was leading the country toward anarchy, she said, adding the party was planning to attack law enforcement agencies.

“PTI’s long march is a ‘conspiracy’ to set the country on fire.”

Maryam said that the PTI workers have weapons and teargas.

“Last night’s incident during which a PTI worker gunned down a police constable in Lahore was the beginning of the violent conspiracy against the country,” Maryam said.

Speaking about the chief minister of Punjab, she said that Hamza Shehbaz was the elected chief minister of the province.

“If Hamza Shehbaz is not the chief minister of Punjab then Imran Khan should tell us who out of Usman Buzdar or Farah Gogi is the chief minister,” she questioned.
