PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb claims that a PML-N ad featuring some of the flowery language (if you will) used by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan in the last five years has been banned by Pemra.

Aurangzeb claims that the ad was banned after it was altered to include excerpts from Khan's speech of three days ago — she was apparently alluding to Khan's usage of the word 'gadhay' (donkeys) to refer to PML-N supporters who participated in a rally to welcome ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif on his arrival at Lahore from London.

The PML-N leader in her presser claimed that if Khan's language is too inappropriate to be used in an ad, it makes sense for his speeches to banned by the ECP and Pemra as well since he, according to her, has been using similar diction in them.
