Terrorism aimed at delaying elections: Imran Khan
15 July, 2018
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday said the recent surge in terrorism is aimed at delaying the forthcoming general elections.
While speaking at a rally in Swabi, he said that a few elements want uncertainty in Pakistan so that the people don’t come to vote in the forthcoming polls. “The conspiracy to unleash terror in Pakistan is planned abroad and facilitated from the people within the country,” he claimed. “The foreign forces want to delay the polls.”
The PTI chief said that corruption is a ‘family business’ of the Sharif family. He said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif returned as he was assured by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif that millions will be on the roads to welcome him. “Only four to five thousand were there to welcome Nawaz,” he said. “Shehbaz has tricked him … the road is clear for him with Nawaz in Adiala now.”
The PTI chief said that Shehbaz Sharif will soon join Nawaz in Adiala after reopening of corruption references against him. “For those who went to welcome Nawaz, I ask them do they have any shame? You went to welcome a plunderer.”
