Imran harping on 'conspiracy letter' to cover up his govt's nil performance: Marriyum.

ISLAMABAD -- Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb Wednesday said former prime minister Imran Khan had been harping on the so-called "conspiracy letter" in order to cover up his "nil performance" in four-year rule.

"He has been waving the conspiracy paper as he has nothing on his credit on account of his government's performance," she told a media briefing about cabinet meeting.

He directed the Interior Ministry to review NAP in collaboration with all the provinces and NECTA, and devise comprehensive plan to curb terrorism, she added.
