Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Friday slammed ousted Prime Minister Imran Khan over his recent comments on the "regime change conspiracy" that led to the toppling of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

"First, he said the threat letter arrived on March 7, and now he is saying that he had known about the conspiracy since last year," Maryam commented while addressing a rally in Attock, Punjab, reported Geo News.

Earlier, Khan, during a podcast interview, said that he had learned about the "conspiracy" against his government in July last year.

Khan claimed he was ousted because he refused military base facilities to the US as its forces evacuated from neighbouring Afghanistan in August 2021.

She also shed light on the alleged corruption charges against former first lady Bushra Bibi's friend Farah Khan (alias Farah Gogi) and said that the PTI's "so-called independence march" is actually a "Save Gogi" march.

"Farah Gogi's corruption trails lead to Bani Gala. It's unfortunate that Imran Khan never publically tried saving his sister Aleema Khan when there were allegations hurled against her, but he came to Gogi's rescue while speaking on national TV," she said.

She went on to say that it was "Gogi, Pinky, and Kaptaan" who looted the country's wealth, adding that Imran Khan minted billions of rupees through the foreign funding case.
