ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Thursday condemned the steps taken by the government for giving protocol to ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif from Benazir Bhutto International Airport to Punjab House. “Absolutely shameful how a discredited PM, facing a host of financial corruption charges, is given official protocol at taxpayers’ expense,” PTI chief said. It may be noted that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif returned to the country on Thursday morning to appear before an anti-corruption court on Friday. Imran lambasted Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for not only approving the protocol but also allowing the former premier to stay at Punjab House on the expense of taxpayers.

“What message is being conveyed? Does this mean one should not steal small things and go for bigger ones?” he questioned, while addressing a rally in Uch Sharif. He lamented that prisons in the country were overcrowded with poor people involved in petty crimes. “The one who took away Rs 300 billion asks why was he ousted,” Khan took a jibe at Nawaz. “You are attacking the courts to hide your corruption.” Khan claimed that Nawaz Sharif had failed to provide a single document as evidence to the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case.

He said the Supreme Court gave complete chance to Nawaz Sharif to clarify as to how did he sent Rs 300 billion abroad. “Nawaz Sharif lied and failed to present a single document as evidence,” he said. “When the JIT was formed, even then no evidence was provided to substantiate their claims.” He said that his party, after coming into power, would provide highest capital and facilities to farmers. Noting that Rs 200 billion were being spent on Orange Line Train that covers only 27 kilometres, the PTI chairman said if a lesser amount was given to farmers, it would bring prosperity in the country.
