ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif criticized the PTI leader Imran Khan for making statements in the past inciting the general public to alight their utility bills and use ‘hundi’ to route their money other than the legal banking channels. He pointed out that the PTI leader was misappropriating billions of charity money of his hospital by diverting it to the expenses related to his politics.
He urged the nation to get a realization about the true face of Imran Khan which had been exposed following his intention and desire for the country to face Sri Lanka-like situation. He said now it was upon the people of Pakistan to awaken their conscience and reject the narrative of Imran Khan based on lies and deceit.
“Pakistan is not destined to become Sri Lanka. The nation with its resilience will make the homeland a land of prosperity and development,” he said.
Shehbaz Sharif said the government was making untiring efforts to mitigate the sufferings of the people affected by floods. He said over 1,000 people including 300 children lost their lives as floods swept away a large area across the country. He said the federal and provincial governments along with National Disaster Management Authority and the Pakistan army were carrying out relief and rescue activities to their best.
