KHUSHAB: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Saturday said the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) has destroyed the country.
Addressing party workers in Khushab ahead of the NA-120 by-poll, Imran claimed that the ‘lies of the Sharif clan have come to the forefront.’
The PTI chief questioned the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz’s motives to lie to the nation, after an audio recording of the former was played in which she denied owning any properties in Pakistan and abroad.
“The Sharif family lies because it has looted your [the nation’s] money,” Imran insisted.
Lashing at the PML-N, Imran claimed the party tried to bribe the top brass of the country including army chiefs and judges of the Supreme Court for its ‘corrupt motives.’
“Voters in Lahore must decide if they support the judiciary or not,” he said, referencing to the Supreme Court’s decision to disqualify Nawaz Sharif from holding public office on the basis of the Constitution’s article’s 62 and 63.
“Pakistanis pay the most for electricity in South-East Asia because of the billions that corrupt leaders have borrowed from the International Monetary Fund,” Imran said, insisting that Nawaz Sharif and his family have profited from corruption while the nation suffers from poverty.
Citing the example of South African countries, he said despite having diamond mines, the countries couldn’t progress due to deep-rooted corruption, adding that Pakistan needs to rid itself of corrupt leaders in order to make significant strides in development.
He compared the economic development of Singapore with Pakistan, stating that one honest prime minister changed the country’s standing in the world.
