The premier, she said, had already equated any increase in sugar and flour prices with the Prime Minister being thief. 

"Who is thief if price of one bread was Rs5 in Nawaz Sharif's tenure and today it is available in Rs25. Who is thief when power tariff in Nawaz Sharif's tenure was Rs11-12 per unit and today per unit price is Rs25. Who is thief when sugar price in Nawaz tenure was Rs50 per kilogram and now it is Rs120 per kg and who is thief when per litre petrol price was Rs70 in Nawaz regime and it is now Rs138 per litre?" 

She said every item gets dearer subject to increase in petrol and diesel prices so each item is costly today, asking her workers to tell "who is now thief"? 

"Imran Khan has fulfilled only one promise of not making us (PML-N) cry, but he made the entire nation crying today," the PML-N leader was addressing the public meeting of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) in Faisalabad.

She said the people of Pakistan have been left in the lurch without Nawaz Sharif, adding today the country is engulfed in inflation and lawlessness.

Maryam said former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's opponents had suffered exemplary defeat, adding Imran Khan is exercising his authority not more than that of the Islamabad mayor.

She recalled that the world leaders used to visit Pakistan in PML-N tenure, but in PTI regime Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi doesn't attend his (PM) phone and US President Joe Biden doesn't call him (PM).  

Khan's party-- PTI-- has ranked "number 1" in the recently leaked Pandora Papers, the PML-N stalwart said, adding "the nation was told Imran Khan's name isn't included in the list [...] have you ever heard that the leader of a pack of thieves was an honest person?" she asked.

Maryam also criticised the government for the dengue outbreak, particularly in Punjab.

"The entire world is facing coronavirus, but now because of their (government's) incompetence, people are dying of dengue," she said, adding there was no one here like Shehbaz Sharif who used to visit hospitals.
