TAUNSA SHARIF: PTI chief Imran Khan on Saturday warned political rivals the Sharifs and Zardari that he would send them to jail when his party comes into power and promised to recover looted wealth stashed abroad.
Addressing a political gathering in Taunsa Sharif, Imran Khan lamented how the rich and powerful in Pakistan were able to evade arrest while the poor thieves were punished for petty crimes.
“For stealing thousands or a few hundreds of rupees, you get sent to jail,” he said. “The affluent mint money in billions from corruption and are able to stash them abroad,” he added.
Imran said that Ishaq Dar and Nawaz Sharid had secured a ‘historic loan’ for Pakistan, obviously implying in a negative sense.
“We will catch Zardari, Nawaz, Shehbaz and Ishaq Dar,” said Imran. “And we will bring back their stolen wealth from abroad.
Imran urged people to rise above their fears and hold the corrupt elite to account. He said that God had sent His messengers to the world to ensure that there remained a difference between men and animals.
“Currently there are two laws operating in the world,” he said. “One is the law of man and the other is the law of the jungle. God sent messengers in order to make us civilised,” he added.
Imran Khan has frequently called for the arrest of Sharif family and also fired shots at PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari as well as his son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
