No need for commission on so-called 'foreign conspiracy': Marriyum.

ISLAMABAD -- Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday said there was no need for establishing any commission on the so-called foreign conspiracy as the country's premier intelligence agencies had ruled out any such plot against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

'What is left to be investigated after the National Security Committee (NSC) meeting's press release which clearly pointed out that there was no conspiracy.

She said the foreign conspiracy narrative propped up just after the PTI's coalition partners announced to quit the alliance due to corruption, deceit, incompetency and hypocrisy of Imran Khan. There was foreign conspiracy until the allied parties stood with the PTI government, she added.

Marriyum asked Imran Khan as to why he did not disclose 'the conspiracy' soon after his government received the telegram from the Pakistani envoy in the US on...
