LAHORE : Law Minister of Punjab Rana Sanaullah has termed Pakistan Tehree-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan responsible for prevailing shoe culture.

He warned that is this does not stop, it would take everyone into its embrace and no one will be spared. He particularly named Sheikh Rasheed as the one who would top the list of shoe receivers.
