Nawaz only represents one ideology, which is corruption,” said Imran. “He is ready to destroy this country’s courts and military to save the Rs300 billion that he looted from this country.
Nawaz, you won’t be able to save the money you laundered out of Pakistan. We will bring it back to this country.
The PTI leader also accused Nawaz’s political allies including Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party Chief Mehmood Achakzai — who addressed a rally held by the former prime minister — for only holding on to the ideology of corruption.
These people [Nawaz’s allies] are standing with him [Nawaz] because they are afraid that if Nawaz is caught and sentenced, then they are next.”
Coming down hard on the country’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, Imran alleged that the former was a legal advisor of a company in the Middle East while he served as the country’s defence minister.
He held an iqama that bound him to work for the company for at least six to eight hours every day, so the only reason to hold the iqama was to launder money, Imran alleged.
He requested the National Accountability (NAB) Chairman Justice (R) Javed Iqbal to also investigate the Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, who according to the PTI chief, holds an iqama issued by an organisation in Saudi Arabia.
The entire nation has hopes associated with you [Justice (R) Iqbal], he said. The Hudaibya Papers Mills case speaks about the corruption of all members of the Nawaz family.
The party is showcasing its political might through holding rallies across Punjab and Sindh.
Preparations for the event were completed earlier and strict security has been ensured at the venue.
Roughly 2,000 police personnel have been deployed at the venue, which has seven entry gates.
Local PTI leaders said around 20,000 people are attending the gathering.
The PTI chief and senior party leaders arrived at the venue via helicopter and will soon take the stage.
The party held a number of rallies in various parts of the country in November, including Khanewal, Hafizabad and Taunsa.
Imran Khan addressing a rally in late November in Hafizabad lashed out at former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, saying that Nawaz’s ideology is only corruption.
Nawaz says that Nawaz is the name of an ideology. Nawaz’s ideology is nothing but corruption, he said.
