Imran Khan acting upon directions of “puppeteers”: says Info minister


Islamabad, Jan. 5 (TNS): Hitting back at PTI chief, State Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Friday that Imran Khan’s press conference was upon the directions of an unknown “puppeteer’s”.

The state minister said that the media talk revealed who was pulling the strings of the PTI chief.

“Imran is mentally challenged and acting upon unknown person’s directions,” said Marriyum.

She claimed that Imran is similar to a puppet and a hurdle in Pakistan’s progress, fulfilling directives ‘from overseas’.

The state minister said that when former president Pervez Musharraf ‘was selling Pakistanis for US dollars, Imran was standing beside him’.

“Imran needs to explain why he supported Musharraf’s post-9/11 policy,” she said.

Earlier today, Imran Khan criticised the incumbent government after the United States cut military aid to the country and questioned why was the prime minister not active in handling the situation.
