Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan on Friday has claimed that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif can destroy the country and nation for his personal interests. Talking to media at Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC), Imran said that comparing him with Nawaz Sharif is humiliating as it’s like he is being compared with ‘Sultana’ dacoit.
He also lashed out at PM Shahiq Khaqan Abbasi and said that he and other ministers are supporting an accused, who is facing trial in several corruption cases. Nawaz Sharif is attacking Pakistan’s judiciary and army but PTI wants to strengthen the departments, he added. My sit-in was political as it was carried out to raise the issue of rigging held in 2013 elections, he reiterated.
He also demanded the former premier to provide details of 29 properties worth Rs300 billion. “At time of Yousuf Raza Gillani’s disqualification as Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif was among people pressing the PPP for conceding the court verdict,” Khan recalled while implying Sharif should concede the court’s ruling.
Imran Khan said that the terrorism cases on politicians would harm democratic institutions in the country. He said the federal government was making all attempts to silence his voice after viewing the PTI protests as terrorism. Deploring the terrorism cases on political activists, he said as many as 60 documents were submitted to the court in State Television (PTV) attack case filed against him and other PTI workers.
