While condemning the politics of Imran Khan, the Prime Minister said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman has been continuing the malicious campaign against institutions, which is helping to fulfil the enemy’s agenda. He said Pakistan’s Armed forces have rendered matchless sacrifices in the war against terrorism. He said the PTI chief is misleading the nation by levelling false allegations, spreading propaganda and speaking blatant lies.
The Prime Minister said the PTI government registered fake cases against its political opponents. Condemning the Wazirabad incident of firing on PTI’s Long March, the Prime Minister said that the Interior Ministry has been directed to investigate the incident.
He said that as the security of the Long March is responsibility of the Punjab government, however, it is a big question mark that no FIR has been registered so far. The Prime Minister raised the question that why Imran Khan was taken to Shaukat Khanum Hospital immediately after the Wazirabad incident.
He said extremism in the politics cannot be tolerated and the levelling baseless allegations on institutions should also be stopped. He said Imran Khan used the killing of senior journalist Arshad Sharif for political objectives and also used religious card against his political opponents. Shehbaz Sharif also prayed for early recovery of PTI chief Imran Khan and other injured persons.
