Those who flourished under dictators are part of PTI today, says Hamid Khan


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Hamid Khan on Saturday said those who enjoyed power under the umbrella of dictators and cracked jokes about PTI are today a part of the party, a news channel reported.

“They are corrupt. They are sugar mafia. They are the enemies of Pakistan,” said Hamid Khan while talking to reporters. He said these members poison the party Chairman Imran Khan’s ears by telling him that only they are the ones who hold relevant experience and only they are competent in the entire lot.

He said the PTI suffered damage due to the presence of self-centered individuals in the party. “The party needs to be cleansed of corrupt elements and that no compromise would be made in this regard,” he added.

He said even Imran Khan repeatedly expressed his regret that he felt a dearth of competent people around him.

Hamid Khan said rigging did take place in general elections of 2013 but his party could not prove it. He, however, said that he was successful in proving rigging in his constituency.
