Imran fires shots at Zardari in Peshawar rally–promises PTI will sweep elections

October 13, 2017

PESHAWAR: PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Friday warned former president Asif Ali Zardari, saying that he was about to come to Sindh to hold him accountable and claimed that his party would sweep the next elections in 2018. 

Addressing a huge public rally, the cricketer-turned-politician slammed his political rivals one by one. As Imran usually does, the PTI Chairman referred to Maulana Fazal-ur-Rahman as ‘Mullah Diesel’.

“Maulana Fazal-ur-Rahman and Mahmood Khan Achakzai have done injustice with the people of FATA,” he said. “They are both against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s merger with FATA,” he added.

Imran focused most of his speech on former president Asif Ali Zardari, warning the PPP Co-Chairman that he was coming to Sindh.

“When PTI will come to power, we will hold the corrupt accountable,” he said.

Imran said that Asif Ali Zardari speaking out against corruption was so baffling that it could be counted as one of the signs of the Day of Judgment. He wondered why ANP chief Asfandyar Wali Khan and Asif Ali Zardari were close friends.

“Zardari is the biggest beemari (disease) of Pakistan,” said Imran Khan.

Imran further said that in Pakistan, those who indulged in mega corruption were accorded protocols consisting of 40 vehicles.  He lashed out at Maryam Nawaz Sharif during his speech as well, questioning her leadership credentials.

“She (Maryam) waves her hands to the crowd as if she had won the world cup for Pakistan,” he said.

Imran concluded his speech by promising the people that PTI would form its own government in the next election across Pakistan’s four provinces.

“PTI will bring a revolution in the next election and Pakistan will become a great nation,” he said.
