Marriyum terms Imran's "failed long march" 'work from home' (mis) adventure.

ISLAMABAD -- Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Friday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan's failed long march had become "work from home" adventure.

Addressing a press conference, here, she said "Imran Khan is in grief as his failed long march had been changed into work from home".

"Our watches show us the time, Imran Khan's watch has shown him his reality (' auqat'), she said while taking a jibe at the PTI chief.
