Bahawalnagar: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) chairman Nawaz Sharif in a rally held at the Railways Ground in the Chishtian Tehsil of Bahawalnagar on Sunday.
“Nawaz only represents one ideology, which is corruption,” said Imran. “He is ready to destroy this country’s courts and military to save the Rs.300 billion that he looted from this country.” “Nawaz, you won’t be able to save the money you laundered out of Pakistan. We will bring it back to Pakistan.
The PTI leader also accused Nawaz’s political allies including Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party Chief Mehmood Achakzai for only standing with the ideology of ‘corruption.’ “There is just one ideology of the people who are standing with you Nawaz, which is corruption,” he said. “They are afraid that if you are caught and sentenced, then they are next.”
Coming down hard on the country’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, Imran alleged that the former 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 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.” The party is showcasing its political might through holding rallies across Punjab and Sindh.
