PML-N, PPP assail PTI govt’s 100-day performance

| Aitzaz says plan was just a clamour | It’s a tale of 100 U-turns, claims Marriyum

Lahore - The two top opposition parties on Sunday blasted the 100-day plan of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which it had promised to implement after coming into power.

Pakistan Peoples Party senior leader Aitzaz Ahsan said the 100-day plan has been a reason for embarrassment to the government.  He said the PTI should not have made tall claims because no government can achieve its goals only within the initial 100 days of coming into power.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s central spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb while terming the 100 days of PTI government a tale of 100 U-turns has said that the hopeless and useless government was trying to take credit for the projects and initiatives of the PML-N government after failing to do anything on their own. “Every word said in these 100 days was a lie, every promise a farce and every claim a hopeless failure, during which merit was murdered, bureaucracy was politicised and pressured for favours,” she observed in a statement issued on Sunday.

Marriyum said the PTI government was busy taking another one of their signature U-turns by lying to the people by putting their nametag on projects completed by the PML-N. She described it a theft, adding it was nothing new for the PTI as stealing was the corner stone of their party just like they stole the mandate of the people of the Pakistan in the 2018 elections. She said in these 100 days the list of PTI achievements was ridiculous instead of being impressive.

“From the miracle of the PM’s visit to Saudi Arabia on a camel to provision of millions of jobs and houses built on Google, and the illegal occupation of the PM on government land in Bani Gala, it is a tale of U-turns,” she observed while taking jibes at the PTI government. She added those who had vowed committing suicide instead of borrowing went begging from country to country thereby exposing the government’s revolutionary economic turnaround policy.

Criticising the PTI 100-day performance, the PML-N’s central spokesperson asked Prime Minister Imran Khan as to when will he tweet about Aleema Khan’s illegal assets. “When will the money looted by Aleema Khan be brought back by Prime Minister Imran Khan who used to shout claims of bringing every penny of looted public money and evaded tax back to Pakistan,” she questioned.

The former information minister said Pakistan was days away from experiencing the earth-shattering and most mammoth U-turn of the PTI government in the form of its 100-day performance. “The people of Pakistan will be presented with the 100 lies and 100 U-turns of the PTI government over these first 100 days of their failed government,” she remarked.

Condemning the alleged PTI’s act of attributing PML-N government’s projects to its name, Marriyum said this showed how sad the state of affairs really were that the government had to stoop to this low. “This is so since the PTI government has nothing to show for these 100 days other than their incompetence and inability,” she maintained.

Marriyum affirmed that it was ironic to watch that a government slinging mud on opponents out of political vengeance in the name of accountability had to face disgrace when the biggest theft and money laundering was revealed from their closest ranks in the form of the PM’s sister Aleema Khan.

She mocked that the most significant achievement of the PTI government in these 100 days was the NRO given to Aleema Khan. She asked Prime Minister Imran Khan that before taking a great U-turn on his 100 days claim, he should be aware of the fact that the people of Pakistan were watching his every move and knew his lying strategy.

According to the PML-N spokesperson, every single day of these 100 days was an Armageddon for the people of Pakistan and every sector and department of the government and private sector were hit with one disappointment after the other.

Talking to journalists in Lahore, PPP senior leader Aitzaz Ahsan said “Imran Khans’s 100-day plan was a clamour.”

Aitzaz Ahsan explained that the kind of projects announced by the PTI government were practicable in a society where the presidential system of governance is followed. The claims of the PTI related to ‘change’ were far from reality and these people were not capable of bringing any change either, the PPP leader remarked.

Referring to the trial of former premier Nawaz Sharif and his family, the seasoned lawyer said “I am not happy with anyone’s imprisonment; however, the adviser of Nawaz Sharif was giving him inappropriate suggestions,” he added.

Following the controversial statements of the ousted premier, it appears that he cannot be saved, Aitzaz hinted while adding that Nawaz had already mentioned his source of income in his speech and now he was looking for an escape from the situation.
