LAHORE: PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz says Prime Minister Imran Khan should not be allowed to wreak havoc on the country.

“One person (Imran) who is not in his senses anymore cannot be allowed to wreak havoc and bring the entire country down. This is not a joke. He should not be treated as PM or ex PM, he must be treated as a PSYCHOPATH who just to save his own skin is holding the entire country hostage. Shame,” Ms Nawaz said in a series of tweets on Saturday.

She also castigated the premier for causing a delay in the voting on the no-confidence motion against him.

“This blatant violation of constitution and disregard to SC orders will be ugly and end badly,” she said and added the country of 220 million had been without a government for weeks now.

She also criticised Imran Khan for showering praise on India. She asked him to go to India if he liked it so much. She also reminded him that in India no prime minister ran away from the no-trust motion like him. “Imran is playing havoc with the constitution and democracy.”

PPP Senator Sherry Rehman said in a tweet: “There’s an order of the Supreme Court holding the field but Imran Khan is refusing to let go of his chair and has called a cabinet mtg while MNAs remain in the parliament since 10 am this morning. This is pure malafide intent; desperate moves to get an NRO himself. #VotingKarao.”

The Supreme Court on Thursday had reversed the dissolution of the National Assembly by President Dr Arif Alvi on April 3 and ordered Prime Minister Imran Khan to face the vote of no-confidence. The apex court also set aside the ruling of Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri that had blocked under Article 5 voting on the no-confidence move by holding it contrary to the Constitution.
