Niazi’ legs are ‘trembling’ to face arrest: Khaqan Abbasi


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Monday criticized that the coalition government was not weak but Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan Niazi’ legs were ‘trembling’ to face arrest and the government will not allow him to hold the nation hostage for his personal gains. “Today the nation has recognized who is brave and who is a coward”, he said while talking to PTV news channel.

He said that equal justice must be done with Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan, adding, every political leader should be treated equally and must be brought to justice. Replying to a question, he said that the elections would be held in the country at the right time, adding, we are not running away from the elections but need equal justice from the courts. The politics of Imran Khan was based on lies, he said, adding, “Imran Khan should be ashamed of ruining the state institutions during the PTI government’s tenure with his poor governance and failed policies.

He said that Imran Khan was a power-hungry person and had nothing to do with democratic norms and values, adding, he should answer where has spent the money he took from American companies. Khan filed fabricated cases of corruption against Nawaz Sharif, but failed to produce a single piece of evidence in the court, he added.

On the other hand Federal Minister for Climate Change, Senator, Sherry Rehman on Monday demanded that the Court should take strict notice against Imran Khan for obstructing judicial and police proceedings and telling lies. In a series of tweets, the federal minister said PTI Chairman Imran Khan, who spoke about the rule of law, lied to avoid arrest. Senator Rehman said, “This is the same person who sent all political opponents to jail for revenge in the past. Asif Ali Zardari and all other politicians rendered their arrest in fabricated cases with courage.”

She added that Imran Khan hid behind his party workers every time to stop legal and judicial proceedings. Imran Khan was so afraid of arrest that he did not personally receive court notices from the police, she said. The Minister said Khan had hidden in the Zamanat Park (dubbing Imran Khan’s Zaman Park residence as bail park) to avoid arrest, and the police were shown an empty room.
