Nawaz Sharif destroyed institutions to protect himself: Imran
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif destroyed institutions just to safeguard his corruption.
He said that even former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif was involved in corruption including fifty-six companies and the Multan metro bus scandal, and even in the Hudaibiya paper mill case.
“They are not small thieves but rather big plunderers,” he said adding that both brothers ruined national institutions just to protect their corruption and safeguard their ill-gotten wealth.
“People support leaders like Nelson Mandela, not Nawaz Sharif,” he said.
“Nawaz Sharif, just to protect his corruption, ruined institutions of accountability.”
He said the billions looted from the national wealth destroyed the nation, adding there should be one law for everyone and that everyone should be held accountable.
“Shehbaz Sharif is directly involved in the Multan metro scandal. The law for ordinary citizens should also be applicable for Sharifs as well,” he said.
He said a suspect shouldn’t be given leniency or the permission to go abroad and there should be one law for everyone.
He said that even the Supreme Court termed Nawaz Sharif as the ‘godfather’ in the Panama Papers case. He added that Nawaz Sharif made an covert deal with Asif Zardari to safeguard their corruption.
“Zardari would have been in jail much earlier if Nawaz Sharif had not supported him,” he said. “PPP and PML-N protected each other’s corruption.”
He said that the level of foreign debts that nation has burden is unprecedented, and that Shehbaz Sharif should be grateful that Hudaibiya case was not reopened against him.
