LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of the former prime minister, on Sunday hit back at Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan who described Prime Minister Shahid Khan Abbasi as her father’s “puppet.”
In a sharp rejoinder, she said on her Twitter account, “Puppet is a word synonymous with you [Imran Khan].” “Aaj ye tweet kerne ka hukam mila hai (Today, you have been ordered to this tweet).” she continued.
Puppet is a word synonymous with you. Aaj ye tweet kerne ka hukam mila hai ? https://t.co/aWj6Dhb3fU

Earlier in a tweet, the PTI chief dubbed Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi a puppet of Nawaz Sharif and said the ruling party was not removing Finance Minister Ishaq Dar because it was afraid that he might make another confession about corruption committed by the Sharifs.
Referring to Hudaibiya Papers Mill case, Khan said the Sharif family was afraid of the Finance Minister’s making another confession with regard to money laundering committed by it.
He said it was shocking that incumbent Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi could not remove Dar despite multiple charges of corruption against him and having been declared as absconder by a court.
Shocking! Puppet of NS, PM Abbasi, can’t remove FM Dar the Sharif mafia’s front man & absconder from justice facing multiple charges of corruption & money laundering, simply bec Sharif mafia petrified he may spill more beans abt their money laundering post his earlier confession
