LAHORE (INP): Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday said that despite all efforts Imran Khan can’t come to power through the backdoor.
A statement released by the chief minister claimed that all expectations of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief are interlinked with the report of the Joint Investigation Team probing the Panama Papers case, which is surrounded by conflicts and controversy.
“Ever since Musharaf’s rule, Imran has tried to find artificial braces in politics,” Sharif said. “I wish he could have trusted the democratic process instead.”
The statement went on to state that Khan got an opportunity to serve people in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa but “this is not what they [PTI] do.” Sharif remarked that he was waiting for Khan to live up to his claim of filing a reference against him.
He claimed that there is nothing to Khan’s politics if “lies and abuses” are to be removed from it.
