Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Sunday accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of securing the vote of confidence in the National Assembly at gunpoint.

Speaking to the media after a party meeting in the federal capital, Maryam said the prime minister took the vote of confidence from the lawmakers of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the allied parties at gunpoint on Saturday. She snubbed those preaching ethics and civilisation to PML-N leaders and workers and said they should keep these things to themselves. She said that people who attacked leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) outside the Parliament House would have to pay a heavy price for their acts. She said that she would not accept a disgraceful behaviour towards opposition leaders in Pakistan.

Maryam, who has been playing on the front foot nowadays, said that several lawmakers from the ruling PTI were in touch with the PML-N leadership. She said that an attempt was made to misuse the national institutions in the Senate election. She said that surveillance of PTI lawmakers was done through a drone until the prime minister got the vote of confidence. She said that PTI lawmakers’ votes were snatched from them.

Answering a question, Maryam said that Miftah Ismail would be the PML-N candidate in NA-249 Karachi for the upcoming by-election. The seat was vacated by PTI lawmaker Faisal Vawda, who has been elected as a member of the Senate. The PML-N’s most vocal leader said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s time was now over. She called the PML-N a long-race horse and said her party leaders would not cross the limits while criticising the opponents. Maryam said the mob attack on PML-N leaders exposed the mafia in the ruling alliance.
