ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Wednesday put his weight behind Sindh Rangers in the face of strong criticism from the PPP and its government about the paramilitary rangers force.
“The whole Karachi knows how mafias are operating in the city,” Khan told media persons after attending the hearing of Inquiry Commission probing claims of systematic rigging in the last general elections.
“Asif Ali Zarari has used very harsh language against army while Nawaz Sharif has come to his rescue,” he said.
“When PTI staged a sit-in outside the Parliament House in Islamabad, Asif Ali Zardari supported Nawaz Sharif,” he said, saying that Charter of Democracy (CoD) signed between the two parties was in fact the charter of “muk muka”.
To a question, he said that opposition parties should ask for the resignation of Nawaz Sharif before demanding the same to the PTI-led government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
“They are hypocrites. They did not back our demands for the resignation of Nawaz Sharif for rigging in 2013 polls, but wasted no time for seeking the ouster of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government,” he said.
“If Nawaz Sharif steps down, we will follow suit,” he offered.
