“PTI Chairman Imran Khan plays cricket”, he added.
While commenting on the NATO supply line case, he added that the court gave decision against Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and PTI and the two parties should respect the court’s verdict.

He urged the present day government to follow the steps of PPP government and take necessary steps for the displaced persons.
