PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said on Saturday that Nawaz Sharif's political opponents have suffered an "exemplary defeat" as she criticised the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)'s government for its poor record on inflation.

"There was a man named Imran Khan, who used to say when flour becomes expensive when sugar prices rise, when rates of electricity and petrol rise, know that your prime minister is a thief," Maryam said while addressing a rally of the Pakistan Demo­cratic Movement (PDM) at Faisalabad's Dhobi Ghat ground.

"So who is the thief now?" Maryam asked the crowd.

Fazl accuses PM of ‘destroying’ national institutions

Talking about the hike in prices of utilities and petroleum products, Maryam said in Nawaz's tenure, sugar was Rs50 per kg, and now it has crossed Rs120 per kg while electricity prices had increased from Rs10-11 per unit to Rs25 per unit.

She also criticised the PTI's government for its failure to contain the dengue outbreak. "The entire world is facing coronavirus, but now because of their [government's] incompetence, people are dying of dengue," she said.

"There is no one here like Shehbaz Sharif who used to visit hospitals."

Addressing the issue of Nawaz Sharif's cases in the Pakistani courts, she said we have "left everything in the hands of God".

PDM postpones meeting

"When a person leaves their matters to God, no matter how powerful one is, or how they say they are on 'one page' [with others], historic defeat, historic humiliation, historic disgrace becomes the fate of the oppressive," she said.

"So tell me now. Has God not made Nawaz Sharif's opponents a warning to all?"

Speaking about the Pandora Papers, Maryam said that Prime Minister Imran Khan's party has ranked "number 1" in the corruption scandal.

"The nation was told Imran Khan's name is not included in the list. Have you ever heard that the leader of a pack of thieves was an honest person?" she asked.

Maryam questioned Imran Khan's foreign policy achievements by saying that when he is asked about the US president not calling during interviews, he looks down in shame.

"He fails to realise that it is not just humiliating for him, but also for Pakistan," he said.

She also claimed that PM Imran had not attended the recent UN General Assembly session in person because "none of the world leaders was willing to meet him".
