Marriyum Lashes Out At Dual Standards On Exemption Pleas

Islamabad (April 23, 2018): State Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Monday that exemption is granted to Imran Khan everyday but Nawaz doesn’t receive it to visit ailing wife.

Speaking to journalists outside accountability court, she criticized that this action is a clear violation of basic human rights. “The ‘ladla’ who attacked the parliament gets exemption everyday however; Nawaz Sharif who appears before the court on daily basis is not granted a single exemption to visit his ailing wife. What is this if not the violation of basic human rights,” she said.

She asserted that record of the person whose corruption is famous in the entire world goes missing from NAB. “All the accusation leveled against Nawaz Sharif by Wajid Zia have been proven wrong,” the minister pronounced.

Marriyum maintained that whenever Nawaz Shari goes out of the country, the opposition rejoices that maybe he will never return now but all their hopes fade with time.

“Nawaz and Maryam have reached Pakistan to attend the NAB hearing while leaving behind an ailing wife and daughter. The opponents who themselves hide behind exemptions cannot exercise any sort of politics,” she added.It is pertinent to mention here that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz late on Sunday returned home from London to appear before the accountability court in Avenfield reference.
