Prime minister shared five pictures, which were captured in the garden of his Banigala residence, to show that he is relaxing at home with his pets and not at all bothered about what the opposition leaders are planning against his government.
Maryam claimed that some federal ministers were beseeching her party to start dialogue, but the PDM has rejected it. However, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz refuted the claim.
Criticising the opposition, the prime minister reiterated that he would not give any National Reconciliation Ordinance-like concession to the opposition leaders no matter how many rallies they staged.
After the funeral prayers, Begum Akhtar's body was taken to Jati Umra estate, where she was laid to rest next to the grave of her husband, Muhammad Sharif.
The rally in the city of Multan was held a day after police, on orders from the government, carried out the arrests and banned the gathering, defending the move as necessary to combat the coronavirus pandemic in Pakistan.
Imran said the opposition parties have been blackmailing the government since day one to grant them amnesty. He said that the NRO given to the opposition by Pervez Musharraf had had disastrous effects on Pakistan, leading to an increase in debt liabilities.
“I praise Gen Bajwa today. To attack an army chief in this manner, a reaction comes from the army,” Imran said during an interview to a TV channel when asked whether there was any “anger” within the military over Sharif’s aggressive speeches.
In a wide-ranging interview to ARY News, Imran hinted that he was pressurised into sending Sharif abroad, saying that the reports presented to his government suggested that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) supremo was severely ill.
Sharif’s treatment in London is scheduled in a couple of weeks, a PML-N leader said. "How come he can return home leaving his treatment in the midway? Neither the Sharif family nor the party is ready to compromise on the health of Sharif and they want him to return after completion of his treatment.”
All the dissenters driven out of the JUI-F have been its senior leaders for decades. Some of them have been quite uneasy over Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s policies since long but they have been deliberately silent for their own reasons.
