LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Central Spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb has said for the first time in history of Pakistan, a budget session was prorogued without parliamentary debate only to ensure legitimisation of the prime minister’s illegal assets by passing the ‘Baji Clause’.

“The Finance Bill 2019 was passed like an autocratic executive order damaging the integrity of the parliament,” she said adding after this move, all those who possessed illegal offshore companies and properties have been given a clean chit.

The PML-N leader further said the government left no stone unturned to ensure there was no obstruction in passing the bill to legitimise the illegal assets of PM Imran Khan’s ‘Benamidar’ Aleema Khan who is nothing but the warehouse manager of his illegal wealth.

“With this bill, Imran has cemented his place in the dark pages of history. Every time, his name would surface, it would be as an illegitimate premier of an illegitimate government of an illegitimate party guilty of illegitimate foreign funding and assets,” she said.

The former information minister continuing her tirade against the premier said, Imran suffers from an inferiority complex and is jealous of the towering personality of PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif because of his illustrious credentials.

She further reminded when the PML-N government announced the tax amnesty scheme to encourage remittances, Imran had said whoever would benefit from this scheme would be thrown in prison by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the now ruling party.

“Then why has Imran not thrown his sister in jail after she benefitted from the amnesty scheme?” questioned Marriyum calling the premier a ‘hypocritical champion of accountability’ who never asked his own sister for receipts and money trails and has also failed to put Jahangir Tareen behind bars.

Referring to the premier’s speech at a university on Sunday, she said the prime minister should have told them about the opportunist who praised Musharraf as he desecrated constitution, democratic institutions and banished democrats of Pakistan.

“PM Imran should educate the students on what he and his government is really good at, which is how to introduce the ‘Baji Clause’ to legalise illegitimate assets of Aleema Khan,” she said.
