ISLAMABAD (APP) - Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Wednesday that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is not a political party, but it is a group of terrorists.
Talking to the media, she said that so far 65 Police and Rangers personnel were injured and hospitalized in their bid to arrest him on court’s orders.
She said that the government had nothing to do with the arrest warrants of PTI chairman Imran Khan as police was implementing the court’s orders. “Imran has been giving the impression that the government was arresting him, but media should inform the people about the actual position regarding Imran Khan’s arrest warrants,” she said. "A cowardly person, a foreign agent, a Toshakahana thief, Tyrian’s father, a criminal of contempt of court is on the run from the police."
Marriyum Aurangzeb said that without naming Imran Khan, she said this person was trying to give the impression that he was disabled and elderly, his leg was plastered and his life was in danger.
Castigating Imran, the minister said that Imran had the habit of telling lies and had been claiming that he was ready for agitation but at the same time he was sick for appearance in the courts. Terming Imran a hypocrite and cowardly person, she said the liar wanted anarchy and civil war in Pakistan.
She said that Imran was desirous of creating chaos in Pakistan, and was misleading the people by blaming the government for his arrest order. “If the government had to arrest (Imran), it had the power of the state, the authority was there, which Imran Khan used for the last four years by jailing his political opponents,” she said.
Taking a jibe on Imran Khan, she said the person who called himself “Bahadur Khan” was hiding under the bed today, though he had claimed to challenge United States. She clarified that Imran Khan was a criminal who had been summoned by the court.
“If the court had arrested this person for violating the constitution, we would not have to see this day when he dissolved the National Assembly to defeat the no-confidence motion,” she remarked.
