A screengrab showing Vice-President PML-N Maryam Nawaz, besides others, listening to former prime minister Imran Khan’s Twitter Space is making the rounds on the internet.
The ex-prime minister broke all the records during his opening Twitter Space session with nearly 165K people listening.
Sharing the screengrab of those listening to the PTI chairman, ex-deputy speaker Qasim Khan Suri highlighted the picture of Maryam Nawaz to show the PML-N leader present during the session.
Within hours the image went viral on social media; however, Maryam Nawaz’s Political Secretary, Zeeshan Malik, said that the screengrab was “fake.” He added that the PML-N vice president never attended the session addressed by Imran Khan.
He replied to a tweet asking whether the photo was an original screengrab or fake.
