Taking a dig at Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said on Friday that it was a “miracle” that even a person like him had the audacity to speak on corruption.
“He [Zardari] is the worst disease and robber in Pakistan. He and his sister [Faryal Talpur] have served me with defamation notices because I don’t respect them,” he told the participants of a PTI rally in Peshawar.
“But I will continue to speak the truth. I will go to Sindh to free its people from the chains of fear and the PTI will form the next government in the province,” he added.
Khan said Pakistanis had to go to other countries to find jobs because $10 billion was sent abroad every year through money laundering.
“People like Zardari and [Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief] Nawaz Sharif steal money from Pakistanis and buy properties and build factories in other countries. Our citizens then go abroad and work at these factories,” he maintained.
“If all this money is spent on building factories and universities in Pakistan, we won’t have to seek loans from the IMF and lose our dignity,” he added.
The PTI chief said the government begged for IMF loans and then imposed heavy taxes on citizens to pay back their installments.
