Government criticized by Imran Khan over Maryam protocol
On Wednesday, 5th July 2017, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan criticized the government for giving official protocol to Maryam Nawaz on her appearance before the joint investigation team which is probing Sharif family’s offshore holdings.
Maryam Nawaz, who is an ordinary citizen and held no official portfolio, was given official protocol, why? Asked the PTI chief.
Through a message on social media site Twitter, Khan said “Inexplicable why private citizen Maryam getting official protocol with police saluting as she goes to appear before criminal investigation?”
He further added that “The Pakistani nation must decide once and for all whether we are a democracy or a Badshahat.”
On the other hand, the Minister of State for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Marriyum Aurangzeb refuted the claims by Imran Khan, and stated that Imran was incapable of differentiating between security and protocol.
Through a statement she said that Maryam Nawaz was given security and not protocol, because of being the daughter of the Prime Minister, who had waged a successful war against the terrorist outfits.
In regards to Imran’s observation about excessive deployment of security personnel, the Minister said that thousands of PML-N workers had come from all over the country to show their solidarity with their leader, therefore, the local administration took all precautionary measures to prevent any untoward incident. The Minister said that Maryam Nawaz and the family members accompanying her came in their own private cars and Imran should know that those who respected their daughters accompanied them the way the family did.
