GUJRANWALA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Tuesday challenged Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif to contest the election against him by returning home.
During his address to the participants of the long march, the PTI chief berated Nawaz, stating that he is there to serve the country, unlike him [Nawaz], who fled the country. Nawaz is waiting to get the NRO from a powerful segment, so that he could return to the country.
Continuing to take a dig at Nawaz, Imran said, “All of us would welcome Nawaz, when he will return home by taking him to Adiala jail, directly from the airport. Even Nawaz had rigged his medical reports. . Together with Asif Ali Zardari, the largest sickness of the country, he [Nawaz] is actively engaged in a conspiracy.”
Speaking of the need for true freedom, the former premier [Imran] asserted that unless a country achieves true independence, it has no standing in the world. The PTI chairman continued by stating that although the people of the independent nation have rights, those who are slaves do not rise.
Recalling his thoughts on the assassination of prominent journalist Arshad Sharif, Imran stated that he [Arshad Sharif] was forced to leave the country and was slain because he stood by the side of truth.
Appealing the Chief Justice of Pakistan to deliver justice to the PTI leaders – Azam Swati and Shahbaz Gill –, Imran also lashed out at the Chief Election Commissioner again, alleging that he [CEC] is a slave of the Sharif family.
