SARGODHA: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday said that different standards of justice for him and his political opponent Imran Khan are unacceptable.
Addressing a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) rally in Kot Momin, Nawaz lamented that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan was not punished by the courts even though he admitted he owns an offshore company, while he was sent home despite being an elected prime minister.
“You hurl allegations at others but you yourself are a very corrupt man,” Nawaz said about Imran. Nawaz said that the huge turnout of the supporters at the rally is a testament to his popularity, terming it a ‘referendum”.
The former premier earlier reached Kot Momin to address the party rally alongside his daughter. This is the PML-N chief’s first major public rally after his famed GT Road Rally following his disqualification as prime minister by the Supreme Court on July 28.
Earlier, media reported that preparations for the rally have been completed and strict security arrangements are also in place. In order to invite people to join rally, party leader Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha earlier met a group of local PML-N leaders to help garner support for the event. DNA
