Imran lashes out at Nawaz, says claims about KP govt ‘litany of lies’


–PTI chief says Nawaz Sharif thinks an elected PM is above the law



ISLAMABAD: Imran Khan on Monday, criticised former premier and Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) president Nawaz Sharif on his “notions of democracy” a day after PML-N held a show of power in Peshawar.

Taking to his social media account on Twitter, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan stated,”Yesterday Nawaz Sharif made clear his idea of democracy and of a PM heading a democratic govt was where the PM is above the law of the land after being elected. He can money launder, evade taxes, conceal assets, lie before parl – all corruption is permissible coz PM is elected”.

He further added, ” Moreover according to [Nawaz Sharif’s] notion of democracy, the elected PM can abuse all state institutions, storm [Supreme Court] with his party hoodlums, give judges briefcases full of money – with no questions asked and no law applied because an elected PM is above the law of the land”.

Imran Khan also touted Nawaz’s claims made in Sunday’s rally as lies and stated, “Nawaz as usual also held forth with a litany of lies abt KP govt. Fact is there are 350 micro hydel stations completed in KP – all [Nawaz Sharif] had to do was to send his paid hacks to chk this out! As for police, health and education reforms – all NS had to do was to talk to KP ppl”.

Earlier on Sunday, Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz took a swing at PTI for ‘duping’ the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) for the past four years.

Addressing a largely-attended public rally, Nawaz Sharif said that PTI chief Imran Khan was expert in telling lies and hurling accusations, who had badly failed to initiate any development work in KP.

He said that the KP people had now got fed up with the hollow claims of PTI’s leadership and their massive presence in the political gathering was a testament to that fact, besides showing support for the PML-N.

He claimed Imran Khan could not digest the mega development projects launched by the PML-N government, like power plants to overcome load-shedding and building a road network, besides the elimination of terrorism.

Nawaz Sharif said the so-called PTI leader could not manage to produce even a single megawatt of electricity despite his party had been in government in KP for four and a half years.

He used to claim for building 350 dams in the province, but none had been constructed, while education and health sectors in the KP were also in miserable condition.

“Where is the new Pakistan, where are the 350 dams, where are the schools and universities, where are the health and education sector reforms?” he mocked Imran.


  1. Mr Khan he can’t spell the word “democracy”. You are giving undue credit for such version. This joker didn’t know who SherShah Suri was!!!
