Maryam Nawaz says if she was arrested then Nawaz Sharif will directly
lead the party from London

LAHORE, (MANEND NEWS): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)
Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif has said that until and unless we
will send the government packing the dream of government to send
Maryam Nawaz abroad could not be fulfilled. She said that the
government can not run and it has to go home. Maryam Nawaz said
that if she was arrested then Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif will
directly lead the party from London.
While talking to media persons outside her Jati Umra residence in
Lahore prior to leaving for Islamabad on Monday, Maryam Nawaz
lashed out at the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for making an
issue about her statements and questioned who gave the
accountability watchdog the right to judge her statements.
”Who gave you the right to judge statements? Your job was to
supposedly stop corruption. Now that you’ve failed in that, you have
changed your responsibilities?” She said the various institutions such
as the army and the courts had their own spokespersons so who had
appointed NAB as the spokesperson.
“Who are they to find responsibilities for themselves about who is
issuing what statements?” Maryam Nawaz railed against NAB and
claimed that the institution did not know the boundaries of its own
authority, adding that a case should be registered against it.
She alleged that NAB had uttered a “great lie” about her not
cooperating or obstructing the investigation in the money laundering
charges against her in the CSM case.

She said she had presented herself at the NAB office for her hearing
but the institution itself resorted to delaying tactics and did not attend
to her.
“For three months on the pretext of investigations you kept me in NAB
and what did you do?” said Maryam, adding that nothing but trivial
and unrelated questions had been asked of her.
She claimed NAB had still not been able to successfully register a
reference against her over the charges she had been arrested for.
“In front of me, the judge in the court asked them many times that
where is your reference? They looked here and there [but had no
answer]. If a reference was merited then they would have made it.”
Maryam said the arrest threat was nothing more than an attempt to
deflate the growing momentum of the PML-N’s opposition against the
government and “save their own sinking ship”.
“I am a Pakistani citizen, the Constitution and the law give me the
right” to make political statements and call out the shortcomings of
the government, Maryam said. “What is a politician supposed to do if
not represent the nation?” she asked.
“If you think that you will be able to scare Maryam Nawaz by threats
of jail and bail cancellation then this will never happen […] Maryam
Nawaz has returned after serving baseless jail terms twice, I will serve
it a third time too.”
The PML-N leader said that ‘fake’ leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf
(PTI) are in panic condition due to the popularity of Pakistan
Democratic Movement (PDM). The concerned authorities are ready to
arrest the opposition leaders whenever they talk about the rallies or
long march, she added.
Maryam Nawaz, while responding to the National Accountability
Bureau’s (NAB) move to challenge her bail in Chaudhry Sugar Mills
case, asked how can the anti-graft watchdog get the authority to
scrutinize statements of the witnesses. NAB has failed to perform its
duty regarding elimination of corruption from the country, she
asserted.
The PML-N vice president further told that she has always attended the
hearings of references against her. Last time, when I came to appear

before the bureau, I was attacked and the officials didn’t open the
gate, she went on to say.
Maryam Nawaz said that installing secret cameras in senate election is
bigger scandal than the rejection of seven votes of Makhdoom Syed
Yousuf Raza Gillani, adding that in constitution there is mention of
secret vote and not installing secret cameras. She said that the
government is running in secret things and these also have come in
front of masses. Replying a question, Maryam Nawaz said that she is
hopeful that when the matter of rejection of seven votes in senate
election will be taken to the court, Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani will win.
Replying a question, Maryam Nawaz said that there is no one who has
not given vote to Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani, adding that if Gillani had
won then Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haidery also would have won.
She said that the life and death is in the hands of Almighty Allah,
adding that nor Maryam and nor her father is scared from anyone. She
said that NAB is no more institution of curtailing the corruption but it
has become institution to harass the opponents of Imran Khan. She
said that Imran Khan should come in the field to face Maryam Nawaz
and PML-N and they are trying to hide behind the NAB and high court.
She said that Imran Khan should compete in the field so that he could
come to know how much masses hate him.
Replying a question, Maryam Nawaz said that current government is
fake government and it has come into power through committing
dacoity on the votes of masses and it has no political, constitutional
and legal worth, adding that Imran Khan is a puppet who has been
imposed on the 220 million people and whole Pakistan seen the result
of this. She said that PML-N and PDM will not support this government
and will not sit with them and will also hold no discussion with them,
adding that they should flee from here.
Replying a question, Maryam Nawaz said that coronavirus comes when
the government is in trouble; otherwise there is no corona, adding that
coronavirus comes in opposition gatherings and not in government
gatherings. She said that Imran Khan is bigger danger as compared
to coronavirus, adding that the corona has come and it will go as its
vaccination has also come but the vaccination of Imran Khan is only
the people should throw out him from power. She said that long march
is also an open and resignations is also an open. Replying a question,
Maryam Nawaz said that until and unless the government goes home
and Imran Khan reaches his conclusion, they present passport and
ticket to her while placing them in a tray and try to remove her name

from ECL she will not accept that and will ask them to take it and go
back.
