Aliya Malik has filed two petitions, one with the Pemra and the other with the cybercrime wing of the FIA against Maryam, claiming that she was not only involved in blackmailing the media, but also patronising unethical trends on social media.

"This is the first time I have seen someone crying for power like this. He is crying that no one came out for him," said the PML-N leader
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, who was expected to take oath as the foreign minister, delayed his induction in the cabinet. Sardar Akhtar Mengal’s BNP refused to join the cabinet in protest against a firing incident in Chaghi.
"They are the people who paid a woman to write a book against me in the 2018 elections. They will once again go for my character assassination after Eid. For them I have a message... I will fight against them as long as I am alive," Imran said.
In videos shared on social media platforms, teary-eyed PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz can be seen hugging Hamza Shahbaz while congratulating him.
Maryam Nawaz is seen as the most influential politician in the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) party that has her uncle Shehbaz Sharif leading a coalition government at present.
During his speech, Imran said: “Someone sent me a clip on social media of Maryam’s speech, somewhere. She took my name so many times and with so much passion, I want to tell her that Maryam, please be careful, your husband might get upset the way you call my name again and again.”
