It is the responsibility of the Election Commission to hold elections in three months, said Sheri Mazari
In her speech, Mazari said, “I realized today how easily American money and intimidation can bring traitors together. Since the formation of Pakistan, they have become accustomed to intimidating and Pakistani politicians will bow down.”
She said that the government invited him to show the letter but he did not accept it and kept making excuses because he knew what was written in it, all the chiefs were sitting in the National Security Committee, did you lie to them all? Charging? In this letter, it was clearly written that remove Imran Khan and show distrust.
She said that it has been the tradition of the United States that any country which is weak and its leaders are weak will demand a change of government and will try to buy their leaders as is happening here. The same thing happened in Libya and Syria. Recently, Biden threatened Turkey and Russia. This country also lied about Iraq in the United Nations. You all read Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto’s book. ۔
“We did not have a government at the time of the War on Terror. There have been 400 drone strikes during the two civilian regimes since the Musharraf era. No one has resisted. What a strong relationship they have with the United States. Beg, but this nation will not bow down.
She said that in this letter it is clearly written that the decision to go to Russia was made by the Prime Minister alone, the question arises who gave him this impression, she said just remove Imran Khan then we you Will forgive, who is America to forgive us?
She said that the Election Commission said that it will take 7 months for the elections, you have the responsibility to hold elections in 3 months, it is part of a conspiracy, and they do not want fair and transparent elections.
If governments can change by 15 billion, it will not end well, Asad Omar
Asad Umar said that today is the most important day in parliamentary history. First of all, let me answer Bilawal’s words. ۔
He said that PML-N created 5.7 million jobs in 5 years, and PTI created 5.5 million jobs in 3 years. The PTI has done as much in the last year as it has done in the last year. The growth of the economy is more than 5% in 2 years, for the first time in 15 years.
Asad Omar said the question is that you have been trying for years to bring down the government but a letter was sent on March 7 and your success started from March 8, how was this possible? That is what we are asking.
He said that if the no-confidence motion was successful, Bhan Mati’s family would form a government. They kept calling each other thieves and robbers. Now they are touching his knees, this also gives credit to Imran Khan.
He said that what kind of democracy is this where loot can be bought by bidding, conscience can be bought, the same thing happened in the Senate election, come even to close the door of contempt of vote.
Asad Umar said that what kind of democracy is it that Aghiar sits down and decides that so-and-so is acceptable, so-and-so is not so-so. Now we have to decide which way to take the country, to be an independent and free Pakistan for which our forefathers made sacrifices. ۔
He said that those who used to say that there would be no one to get a PTI ticket in the next elections, I invite them to come on the field and contest. It will belong to the people.
“I don’t know if we will be here or not, but let me make it clear that if governments can change in 15 billion, it will not end well,” he said.
He said that we respect the decision of the Supreme Court but the supremacy of the parliament must also be protected. If the judiciary has to decide the time of the session then wrap up the parliament. The court cannot interfere in the work of the parliament which is within the constitution. We are not ready to give the power of the parliament to anyone else.
Asad Omar said that in the case of the letter, we had tried to take the opposition into confidence, they were invited for a briefing on the letter but it did not come, it is still time to call a camera briefing and get a detailed briefing. If they do not agree, it is their decision.
He said that in the end, I want to tell the nation and members that this is the struggle for independence and sovereignty of Pakistan, Imran Khan has worked hard for 25 years and will continue to do so and his lions will stand by him.
