Need to defeat people like Rana Sanaullah, Abid Sher, says Imran
FAISALABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Sunday said it was time to defeat elements like Rana Sanaullah and Abid Sher Ali.
Addressing a campaign rally at Dhobighat ground, the PTI chairman said a Rana Sanaullah had said that welcoming convicted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was equivalent to performing the Hajj.
“A Faisalabad politician said that welcoming Nawaz Sharif was equaivalent to the Hajj. What kind of an inept person gives such a statement?” he said.
Condemning the controversial and disrespectful statement, he asked if people will hail an individual who has looted and plundered the nation.
He said a nation is destroyed if there are no ethics, and asked what message which will be sent to the outside world for welcoming a convict.
“We need to defeat people like Rana Sanuallah and Abid Sher Ali,” he said.
He said those who want millions of people to come out on the streets will be defeat on July 25 when the general elections are held.
He said even Abid Sher Ali’s father had accused Rana Sanaullah of involvement in at least eighteen murders. Therefore, the people should think about the future generations and defeat them in the elections.
He said that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) ruled for ten years and bankrupted and indebted the nation, making people poorer but the elite started getting richer everyday.
He hoped that Pakistan will progress and said his two-decade long struggle will bring a favourable change. The nation was progressing but the main reason for sliding down was corruption, he said.
“Nawaz Sharif is in Adiala Jail and pretending to be innocent and a victim. There is a lot of drama going on there,” he said.
He said the Sharif’s son was living in a house worth billions, while people here were deprived of basic doods and healthcare.
He added those who plundered billions were claiming to be innocent, while the poor languish in jail for minor convictions and live in dismal conditions.
