KAHUTA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Friday said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ruined national institutions to safeguard his corruption.
Addressing a public gathering in Kahuta, the PTU chairman said that upcoming week in the Supreme Court is crucial to make a decision against corrupt elements in the country. “The coming week will decide whether Pakistan will be nation of dacoits or a Naya Pakistan,” he said.
Referring to the Joint Investigation Team report, Imran Khan said that he would be ashamed if he was in place of Nawaz Sharif, who has instead vowed to challenge it.
He hailed the members of the JIT who made the damning report against the prime minister and said that people stand with them in the accountability of the Sharif family.

“A ruler who is untruthful and dishonest will bring the nation to ruin,” he said adding that corruption is the biggest problem in the country and the biggest impediment in the progress of the nation.
