KP’s development is on ground, not in advertisements: Imran

April 1, 2018

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday said that the development in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) was on the ground and not only in advertisements.

The PTI chief was responding to the recent criticism of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Quaid Nawaz Sharif while addressing the membership campaign of his party in Lahore.

Imran lashed out at the ruling party and said that unlike Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) development campaigns only seen in advertisements while his party’s efforts were visible on the ground in KP.

Taking a jibe at the Sharif brothers, Imran said that Nawaz and Shehbaz were not politicians but a mafia who had been using the police for 30 years. Referring to Shehbaz Sharif, Imran said, “Chota [younger] don is the biggest drama.”

“He sometimes wears hats and during the rain wears boots,” he added.

Continuing the criticism of his political rivals, the PTI chief promised that he would get the Sharif family’s funds abroad back to the country if his party forms the government in the federation in the upcoming elections.

“A country can never progress when its prime minister is involved in money laundering,” Imran said, adding that the green passport holds no respect in the world.

“Your captain will bowl out the wickets of all corrupt leaders in 2018’s elections,” Imran told his party workers, adding that his team will defeat Nawaz, Shehbaz, and Fazlur Rehman.

Imran also announced the formation of an anti-Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) alliance in Sindh where the latter has a strong electoral backing. Agencies
