Is Imran Khan a sacred cow, whose failure and plunder can’t be criticized? She questioned

Maryam Nawaz went on to say that the whole party is standing with the journalist and the FIA should also refrain from being a puppet of the government.

‘Cheap and intolerable act’

On Monday, while chairing a meeting of the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC), Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed displeasure over the indecent trend that consisted of personal attacks.

Condemning the act, the premier called it “cheap and intolerable,” adding that “such elements cannot be left unchecked and their actions have to be condemned.”

‘Strict action to be taken against accused’

On the other hand, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill on Sunday had said that the government has approached the country’s courts against a journalist who issued “insulting and fabricated” statements about First Lady Bushra Bibi.

The SAPM said that “strict legal action will be taken against those who spread false news about the first lady.”

A day ago, a journalist claimed that Bushra Bibi had “gotten into a fight with PM Imran Khan” and had left Bani Gala for Lahore to stay at her friend, Farah Khan’s house. The rumour soon started spreading on social media and WhatsApp groups.

When approached by Geo News, Farah Khan also refuted the news of the couple’s alleged fight and separation and denied that the first lady was staying at her place.
