Voters will not let Nawaz win elections, claims Imran
RAWALPINDI: (Suno News) Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf founder Imran Khan has claimed that the people will not allow PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif and his candidates to win the upcoming general elections.
Talking to reporters in Adiala Jail, Imran said that the fundamental rights of the people were being infringed through the “worst crackdowns” on the PTI leaders and supporters. Even basic human rights were being flouted in the country, he said.
The cricketer-turned-politician further said, “My lawyers are busy in election campaign therefore they could not appear in the court today. We will fight the case fully. Judge, jury and prosecution all have connived against me. This legal match appears to be fixed.”
He raised a question, “Former PCB chairman Najam Sethi has said that the decision in cases against me would be announced by February 5 and I will be punished in the decision. Where did Najam Sethi get the information from? Everyone knows wherefrom Najam Sethi gets his information.” He demanded that the court summon Najam Sethi and ask him about his comments on the sub judice issue.
He said that the trial is going on since the ouster of his government but Nawaz Sharif was being provided with full protocol. Everyone in power is lying about providing level-playing field to the PTI leaders, he said adding that Nawaz Sharif’s only hope is that “someone” else wins help him win the elections but the people will not let him win.
Last Tuesday, the former prime minister filed petitions in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) for bail in the Toshakhana and £190 million corruption cases.
The PTI ex-chairman filed separate bail petitions in the IHC in both cases. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) director general and the investigation officer have been written as respondents in the petitions.
It was stated in the petitions that bail be granted until the completion of trial and final judgement. “Cases against me are based on malice and political revenge,” Imran Khan said.
