“An illegitimate and incompetent government had been imposed on the people,” the PML-N vice president told the Express Tribune newspaper.  

"Never in the history of the country has there been such an incompetent government. The government's performance is a story of destruction as there is lawlessness in Pakistan," the leader added.
