Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday claimed that Nawaz Sharif has made a deal with former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Zardari to save himself in the ongoing Panamagate corruption case.
While addressing a press conference at his residence in Islamabad, Khan said, “I have no doubt left that Nawaz and Zardari have cut a deal, and that is why Zardari and Sharjeel Memon have returned to Pakistan while Dr Asim Hussain and Ayyan Ali were set free.”
The PTI chairman added that the deal is behind Sharif announcing projects in Sindh while Zardari is in Lahore.
“PPP is now repeating history, returning the favour that PML-N did to them by remaining silent for four years,” Khan said.
Khan added that when PTI’s dharna was underway, “Zardari was invited to Raiwind and a lavish meal was prepared for him to save democracy”.
“Now I just saw on the news that Zardari gave a statement that Nawaz won the 2013 election because of massive rigging and this time around the PPP will make sure history does not repeat itself,” Khan said.
Khan said the two parties are not “uniting for democracy but to hide each others corruption”.
“They are both trying to save each other as they both have money laundering charges against them,” Khan said.
