Will bring Nawaz Sharif back; put him in prison: PM

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Saturday while condemning the offensive language used by former premier Na-waz Sharif against military leadership, announced to launch full efforts for latter’s repatriation from Lo-ndon and put him in common prison by revoking VIP jail facility for looters.

“Now I will try my best to bring you back and put you in common prison, not VIP. Those who loot few hundreds of thousand rupees stay in common prison but those who laundered billions stay in VIP jail. Come back and see where I put you,” he said addressing the Tiger Force Convention here.

Deputy Speaker National Assembly Qasim Suri, Special Assistant to PM on Youth Affairs Usman Dar, SAPM on Overseas Pakistan Zulfiqar Bukhari, SAPM Shahbaz Gill, senior party leadership attended the mega event attended by thousands of the volunteers from across the country.

Calling Friday’s public gathering of 11-member opposition coalition in Gujranwala a “circus” the prime minister also requested the courts and National Accountability Bureau to conclude corruption cases against Sharif Family and Asif Zardari without any delay as the people were yearning to get back their looted money.

He assured both the institutions of fullest logistics support to dispose of the said cases and also announced that he would be activating all the institutions under him to nab the looters.

He said Nawaz Sharif’s verbal attack against Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Director General Inter Services Intelligence Lt General Faiz Hameed was in fact an attempt to get popularity among the Indian and Israeli lobbies.

“I understand whose game he is playing. I have full intelligence (reports). For me it makes no difference who is the army chief now just because I have not laundered money…He is trying to create rift between government and the army,” the prime minister said in an aggressive tone.

“So far, the opposition has seen just one Imran Khan. This is Naya Imran Khan after yesterday’s speech by a jackal. Now they will see a different Imran Khan,” he said while announcing that no more production orders would be issued for the detained opposition leaders on corruption charges to attend the parliament session until they satisfied the courts.

Terming Nawaz Sharif’s words “an attack on Pakistan Army, not General Bajwa” the prime minister said the military had fully supported the government during COVID-19 pandemic, after Karachi rains, in defence and foreign policies and by slashing its annual budget considering the country’s tough financial conditions.

He told the volunteers that Nawaz Sharif first become a minister through the patronage of General (retd) Jilani and chief minister by “polishing the boots of General  Ziaul Haq”. He said the PML-N leader also received millions of rupees from Mehran Bank to contest elections against the PPP.

But, he said unfortunately, the country’s courts always supported him.

Even it was Nawaz Sharif who jailed Asif Ali Zardari twice and it was Zardari who filed Hudaibiya Paper Mills case against him, not Gen Bajwa.

He said after his speech, Nawaz Sharif got huge applause in Indian media as it was Narendra Modi using similar language against Pakistan and Pakistan Army.

“These are the people who can even put the country up or sale just to protect their corruption money. Money is their god,” the prime minister said as the volunteers chanted pro-Imran and anti-opposition slogans with a predominant chant of “diesel” a term usually referred to JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

He said India also knew well that the same Nawaz Sharif started his political career under former military generals’ patronage, got attacked Supreme Court, bought judges to get favoring verdicts, and influenced others to victimize the then opposition.

The prime minister who earlier also launched a web portal for registration of Tiger Force volunteers and help them report hoarding and overpricing complaints through their mobile phone, said Nawaz Sharif maligned judiciary after the Panama case verdict against him.

“Was Panama case filed by General Bajwa? Who was at fault then? He (Nawaz Sharif) is lying shamelessly, even his brother, sons and daughter,” the prime minister commented saying the army was maligned at time when the soldiers were under constant attack. Even 20 soldiers martyred a couple of days before, he added while repeatedly calling the former premier a “jackal” for having escaped to avoid corruption cases.

He told the audience that some 11 years ago, he had forecast that the corrupt opposition parties would get united whenever they would fall in grip for their corruption.

However, he avoided to comment on the speeches by Maryam Nawaz and Bilawal Bhutto calling them “kids”, though he said both were brought up on the corruption money of their respective fathers.

Just to focus more on Nawaz Sharif’s anti-military remarks, the prime minister also opted to utter nothing more against Fazl ur Rehman except calling him 12th man in the 11-member team.
