Maryam seeks public opinion on PDM ‘extreme’ action against govt

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Saturday asked the people on Twitter that what “extreme and effective” measure the Pakistan Democratic Alliance (PDM) should take to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.
The message came at a time when the anti-government alliance discussed the strategy to cash in on the growing public sentiments against rising inflation, as former prime minister Nawaz Sharif asked the masses to take to the streets to protest against the price hike.
“The PDM and the PML-N want to interpret the feelings of the people and cure their sufferings and want to stand by you in your hour of need and be your voice,” she wrote on her official Twitter handle.

PDM اور مسلم لیگ ن عوام کے احساسات کی ترجمانی اور انکی تکالیف کا مداوا کرنا چاہتی ہے، آپ کی دکھ کی گھڑی میں آپ کے ساتھ کھڑا ہونا چاہتی ہے اور آپ کی آواز بننا چاہتی ہے۔ آپ کے خیال میں اس سلسلے میں ہمارا سب سے موثر اور انتہائی اقدام کیا ہونا چاہیے ؟

“What do you think should be our most effective and extreme measure in this regard,” she asked her 6.4 million followers.
Maryam said that even after more than half the population has been plunged into poverty, only those who do not know the plight of the poor could give statements like the ones issued by the government.

آدھی سے زیادہ آبادی غربت کے گڑھے میں داخل کر دینے کے بعد بھی گز بھر کی لمبی زبانیں انہیں کی نکل سکتی ہیں جو غریب کا درد نہیں جانتے۔ ذرا پوچھو لوگوں سے کہ وہ 2017 والا نواز شریف کا پاکستان چاہتے ہیں یا تمہارا غربت، مہنگائی، بے روزگاری،بدامنی، دہشت گردی اور فاقہ کشی والا پاکستان؟

“Just ask the people if they want Nawaz Sharif’s Pakistan of 2017 or your Pakistan of poverty, inflation, unemployment, unrest, terrorism and starvation,” she questioned.

The PML-N VC further said that the government was made Pakistan the most backward country in the region in every field. However, she added, the “business of lying” is continuing from the top to bottom.
“When the heart of the ruler has deprived of the sympathy for people then this stubbornness [by the government] becomes visible,” she added.

نااہل حکمران کا مسلط کردہ مہنگائی کا شدید عذاب، فاقہ کشی سے تنگ آئے لوگوں کی خودکشیاں،ہر شعبے میں خطے کا سب سے پسماندہ ملک بنا دینے کے بعد بھی اوپر سے نیچے تک جھوٹ کا کاروبار جاری ہے۔جب حکمران کا دل عوام کی ہمدردی اور آنکھ حیا سے عاری ہو جائے آئے تو یہی ڈھٹائی دیکھنے میں آتی ہے۔

Meanwhile, talking to The Express Tribune, Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP) General Secretary Shah Awais Noorani said that the PDM, via a video link, on Saturday evening would discuss the situation, arising out of inflation and instability.
“Only the PDM leadership has been invited to the meeting,” he said. “The PDM leaders will discuss the strategy to get rid of this incompetent government.” Responding to a question, Noorani said that the time for in-house strategies was over. “Now it’s time to act and deliver.”
As the PDM convenes an urgent meeting, PML-N President and Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif was trying to come up with a joint strategy with all the parties on the opposition benches, for the upcoming joint parliamentary session.
Shehbaz on Friday telephoned Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, PDM President Maulana Fazlur Rehman and other alliance leaders. They agreed that the people were unable to bear the burden of this inflation and wanted to get rid of this government.

They deliberated on ways to oppose the NAB Amendment Ordinance on every forum.
Reacting to the overnight increase of over Rs8 per litre in the price of petrol, Shehbaz said that this increase would fuel the cost of everything. He claimed that the government was planning a further increase in the POL process through petroleum development levy on the “orders of the IMF”.
According to a statement issued by the PPP, Bilawal and Shehbaz discussed the political situation in the country, including public issues after the worst inflation. “Imran Khan hurts people by giving them a relief ‘lollypop’,” Bilawal said, using a euphemism for false promises
