HARIPUR, Jan 20 (SABAH): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif, taking a jibe at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, has said that Imran Khan was criticizing not the parliament but also disrespecting the lawmakers. “He will go to jail himself,” the PML-N chief said referring to Imran Khan.
Firing broadside at all his opponents, Nawaz Sharif said that all those people who abuse each other gathered on one platform only to conspire against him.
“Where was the politics, diplomacy then,” Nawaz Sharif questioned the opposition parties while addressing a party gathering in Haripur on Saturday.
Taking a jibe at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Nawaz Sharif said Imran Khan was criticizing not the parliament but also disrespecting the lawmakers. “He will go to jail himself,” the PML-N chief said referring to Imran Khan.
In a sarcastic tone, the former premier said he salutes the people who declared Imran Khan sadiq and ameen.
He further said that Imran had vowed to bring a number of changes to Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa but had failed to fulfill any of his promises.
“Do not cry over your defeat in the general elections this year, because empty chairs are unable to give votes,” said Maryam Nawaz, daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, while addressing the PML-N rally in Haripur.
It is pertinent to mention here that in a fiery speech on Lahore’s famed Mall Road, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan had cursed the parliament in the multi-party opposition protest which Maryam thinks is equivalent to cursing the people of Pakistan.
“Cursing the parliament is actually cursing the people who voted for it,” said Maryam.
In a clear reference to Imran Khan, she said, “Our opponents could not do anything to hold early elections, our opponents could get Nawaz Sharif’s resignation and even to disqualify him, they had to see at some other direction.”
“Despite hatching several conspiracies against Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Muslim League –Nawaz, the people of Pakistan always elected Nawaz as their leader.”
Maryam said, “When the opponents were on his container, Nawaz was working on CPEC.”
“Why defeat should not be your fate, for what you have done in the last 4 years,” asked Maryam while criticizing the PTI chief.
