Imran decries wrongful use of laws for political ends
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday vowed to stop illegal use of the laws of the land to achieve political gains.
Speaking to media here after his acquittal in a case pertaining to manhandling of then SSP Islamabad (Operations) Asmatullah Junejo during the 2014 sit-in in Islamabad, the PTI chief expressed happiness over being exonerated from terror charges.
He said institution of terrorism cases against political leaders to achieve political ends is the wrongful use of the law. The democratic governments that indulge in such practice are even worse than dictatorial regimes, he opined.
The PTI chief slammed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Quaid Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari for what he said ruining state institutions by using them in pursuit of their objectives.
Taking an aim at Sharif, he said his rhetoric showed that he was not in good mental health and claimed that his narrative was benefiting the PTI.
Imran said his party has been planning to stage a power show in Karachi before the advent of the holy month of Ramzan.
He hailed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for taking action for the first time against the rulers while they were in power.
