BAHAWALNAGAR: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday that disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif could do anything to save his skin and ‘looted money’.
“Corruption is Nawaz Sharif’s ideology,” he said in his speech at a public meeting in Chishtian town, while recalling the PML-N leader’s recent public address in Abbottabad in which the former prime minister had said that he was an ideology.
Likening him to traitors Mir Jafar and Mir Sadiq, the PTI chief said Nawaz Sharif could harm state institutions for his personal gains.
He asked the PML-N to reveal under whose pressure it amended the Khatm-i-Nubuwat law.
Mr Khan said Nawaz Sharif could not see change in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa although he addressed the Abbottabad meeting without a bullet-proof shield. “This is the change the police had brought about in KP where you can move without fear,” he said.
He said if voted to power, the PTI would change the Punjab police culture as well by stopping political interference. Praising the KP police, he said its commandos had recently acted bravely to save the agriculture directorate from a major loss.
The PTI leader accused the ousted prime minister of sowing seeds of hatred among provinces during his speech in Quetta. He claimed that the federal government had distributed Rs94 billion among its MNAs as a bribe to appease them.
Mr Khan urged the NAB chairman to look into Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal’s Iqama (work permit).
PTI leaders Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Jahangir Tareen also addressed the meeting.
