BAHAWALNAGAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan Sunday lambasted Nawaz Sharif saying the former premier could make any compromise to save his ill-gotten money.
Addressing a public rally in Chishtian tehsil of Bahawalnagar, Imran Khan lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League–Nawaz (PML-N) Chairman Nawaz Sharif and said, “Nawaz only represents one ideology, which is corruption.”
“Nawaz, you won’t be able to save the money you laundered out of Pakistan. We will bring it back to this country,” he added.
The PTI leader also accused Nawaz’s political allies including Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party Chief Mehmood Achakzai, who addressed a rally held by the former prime minister for only holding on to the ideology of ‘corruption.’
He said, “These people are standing with him because they are afraid that if Nawaz is caught and sentenced, then they are next.”Coming down hard on the country’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, Imran alleged that the he was a legal advisor of a company in the Middle East while he served as the country’s defence minister.
“He held an iqama that bound him to work for the company for at least six to eight hours every day, so the only reason to hold the iqama was to launder money,” Imran alleged.
He requested the National Accountability (NAB) Chairman Justice (R) Javed Iqbal to also investigate the Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, who according to the PTI chief, holds an iqama issued by an organisation in Saudi Arabia.“The entire nation has hopes associated with you [Justice (R) Iqbal],” he said. “The Hudaibya Papers Mills case speaks about the corruption of all members of the Nawaz family.”
Responding to an earlier taunt by Nawaz during his address in when he said he could not see any signs of Imran’s Naya Khyber Pakhtunkhwa [new Khyber Pakhtunkhwa], Imran said:
“My only response to him is that he was able to address the public without the protection of a bullet-proof screen. In the old KP, Nawaz wouldn’t have been able to enter the province.”
The PTI leader also observed that Nawaz could not address a public rally in Punjab, to question his ouster, without a bullet-proof screen. INP
