PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said that despite being in the power for 19 years, Sharif brothers – deposed PM Nawaz and CM Shehbaz – have failed to reform police.

“People don’t trust Punjab police,” he said while addressing a ceremony in Peshawar on Friday, Express News reported.

“We have appointed the inspector general (IG) in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa on merit… performance of K-P police makes me happy,” he remarked, adding that merit could only be implemented once institutions were strengthened.

The statement came on the heels of Punjab police’s crackdown on people protesting against the brutal murder and rape of eight-year-old Zainab in Kasur that allegedly killed two protesters and injured many others on Wednesday.

Taking a jibe at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leadership, the PTI chief said nations do not progress by building roads in advertisements. “Sharif brothers can do nothing but deceive the masses,” he added.

Khan said 10 out of 11 suspects had been arrested in connection with a 16-year-old girl paraded naked in Dera Ismail Khan, adding that if persuaded properly, bureaucracy can perform tasks that even the private institutions would struggle to take on.

“A donkey doesn’t turn into Zebra by painting stripes,” he remarked in an apparent reference to recently changed uniform of the Punjab police. While visiting Kasur to offer condolence to the Zainab’s family on Wednesday, Imran had said the police system in Punjab was spoiled by Sharif brothers.
