Pakistan Minister of Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb lashed out at former Prime Minister Imran Khan saying that he wanted to spread political unrest and chaos in the country to cause economic instability.

The federal Minister's remarks come after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Fawad Chaudhry said that the people of the country have rejected the "politics of thieves, hypocrites, and liars."

Marriyum's statement was cited by local media Daily Times. She said that Imran Khan's "electoral framework" was seen in 2018, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, Senate and Daska by-elections.

Earlier, Marriyum Aurangzeb had said that Imran Khan's era was the darkest period for the media and that the PTI chairman had left no stone unturned to make the country another Sri Lanka.

"Mr Imran, you made an IMF agreement on the strictest terms while the coalition government led by Shehbaz Sharif has foiled your conspiracy to make Pakistan a Sri Lanka," she said.
