Imran says Zardari, Nawaz are the ‘biggest criminals’ of the nation
CHAKWAL: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday said the Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Asif Ali Zardari and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif are the biggest criminals in the country.
Addressing a public gathering in Chakwal, the PTI chief said that the nation has changed and will not fall for them again. “The JIT’s decision is for the first time in the history of Pakistan that the powerful was held accountable,” he said.
Imran Khan openly called out the National Accountability Board (NAB) chairman and said that people will not forgive him for given a clean chit to Asif Zardari. “People will not forgive you for letting off Zardari,” he said adding that NAB increased corruption by letting off the big criminals.
He said that previously accountability was only of the poor. “I was in jail for six days and I did not see even one inmate involved in a major crime,” he said. “The biggest criminals were in the National Assembly.”
He said that even the entire robbery of all the criminals in jails is not equivalent to the six-billion rupees apartments owned by the Hussain Nawaz in London.
The public gathering was part of the campaign in the NA-120 by-election in Lahore vacated after the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif. Imran said the by-election will determine that the people are against the corrupt system.
He also announced a membership drive whereby the demographic details will be collected, and members will be given the democratic decision to choose their candidates for the next election.
“This is not nation which was will allow being looted by collusion among two parties,” he said. “With the grace of Al-Mighty Allah, I have been seeing a new Pakistan. No one can stop them now,” he said.
He said that the corrupt politicians have ruined all institutions and no one trusts them now. “There will not be a JIT even in a western country like the one formed by the Supreme Court,” he said.
He also announced to lodge a case against Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for corruption in the Multan metro bus worth two billion rupees which was siphoned to china.
