PPP to sue Imran Khan over allegations against Asif Ali Zardari


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Saturday announced to send a legal notice to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan after he claimed that PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari was behind a new plot to assassinate him, ARY News reported.

In a joint news conference, PPP leaders Farhatullah Babar, Nayyar Bukhari, and Qamar Zaman Kaira criticised Imran over his allegations.

The PPP leaders said that former premier had “lost his mind” and the party would issue a legal notice demanding he rescinds his allegations.

They announced starting a legal battle against Imran Khan if the allegations were not withdrawn.

PPP stalwart Nayyar Bukhari said that Imran Khan made bizarre claims against Zardari to keep himself relevant in politics, saying that this time, the allegations hurled by the PTI chief were quite serious and would be met with a stern response.

He urged the Supreme Court of Pakistan to take notice of the allegations leveled against former president Asif Zardari.

Speaking during the news conference, Qamar Zaman Kaira stated that the allegations levelled by Imran were extremely serious and would be met with a strong response.
