Faisalabad: Outspoken junior water and power ministry Abid Sher Ali on Saturday branded PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his close companions a gang of robbers. ‘Imran Khan is a munshi (secretary) of Jahangir Khan Tarin,’ Abid Sher Ali told media in Faisalabad, a couple of day after he was rebuked by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for making provocative remarks about his political rivals, including Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. ‘In the coming days, they (PTI leaders) will have to hide their faces, but they will find no place to hide,’ he said.
The state minister urged Imran Khan to present evidence he claimed to have regarding offshore holdings of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family. Ali urged the Supreme Court to initiate contempt of court proceedings against Imran Khan for saying he had already won his case in the apex court. He said that Imran Khan’s lie was caught and God willing the people of Pakistan would blacken the faces of PTI Chairman and Sheikh Rashid. To a question, he said that PML-N would bag 80 percent of the seats in Sindh in the next general elections. —Agencies
