LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has on Friday said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif accepted bribe from former al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden to topple Shaheed Benazir Bhutto’s government in 90s. He said that Awami Muslim League (AML) leader Sheikh Rasheed is witness to it that Nawaz Sharif took money from Gulf countries for election.
Addressing PTI public meeting at Qurtaba Chowk in Lahore, Imran Khan said that the sun is setting on Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N). He said that the government thought they would easily win NA-122 election but PTI unleashed its secret weapon. “Aleem Khan was alleged of land-grabbing but entire PML-N is full of land-grabbers”, said Imran.
Imran Khan said that PML-N cannot win without rigging. He told the workers to do everything in order to stop rigging in NA-122 on October 11. Criticizing Nawaz Sharif, Chairman PTI said that PM makes his cabinet members to attack him. “Everything that I have is in Pakistan. I won’t run like Nawaz Sharif to Jeddah”, said Khan. He said that the people of Pakistan know him for the last 40 years. “Pakistanis know me since I raised Pakistan’s flag in the grounds of Cricket”, said Imran. He said that General Durrani gave affidavit in the court that he gave Nawaz Sharif Rs. 3.5 million to topple Benazir’s government. “I have everything in Pakistan and give tax on every penny I have. My money is not outside Pakistan like that of Nawaz Sharif”, said Chairman PTI.
Vice Chairman PTI Shah Mehmood Qureshi said on this occasion that there were fake umpires and referees during 2013 elections. He said that Imran Khan took the process of accountability through the sit-in. He said that the workers won’t let any rigging happen this time. “This war is between two ideologies. Lahore will decide on October 11 just like it had decided in 1940”, said Qureshi.
PTI candidate from NA-122 Abdul Aleem Khan said that he is being called a grabber because he has grabbed the hearts of people. He said that PML-N candidate Ayaz Sadiq never did anything for the area. He said that he got the roads and streets constructed in this area and all the development were done during his era. He said that the people of NA-122 are shutting their doors at Ayaz Sadiq now.
