ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday took a swipe at Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday over the latter’s participation in the upcoming World Economic Forum (WEF).

In a message on Twitter, Imran Khan called the prime minister’s decision to join the forum as a supreme irony.

Nawaz Sharif is off to Davos, at taxpayer expense again, where the theme is anti-corruption,” he said.

“Nawaz Sharif’s vast experience in white collar crime probably qualifies him to address the gathering on money laundering and tax evasion etc,” he added.

The visit also coincides with the Panama leaks case being heard by the Supreme Court.

Besides Prime Minister Sharif, former army chief General Raheel Sharif is also attending the economic forum. – SAMAA
