Terming Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan a “hypocrite”, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Friday said it is coming to the fore before the nation how Gen (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa helped the former premier.
In a bid to steer the country out of the crisis, Pakistan’s armed forces and Gen Bajwa provided all possible support to Imran Khan but he proved a failed prime minister, said PM Shehbaz while addressing the launching ceremony of the establishment of Hazara Electric Supply Company (HAZECO) in Islamabad
“Gen Bajwa tried to move Pakistan forward via Imran Khan but he failed as prime minister,” the incumbent premier said. “Imran Khan is levelling allegations against those who brought him to power.”
“What language is Imran Khan using for Gen Bajwa? He has no match in abusing,” he said, adding that the PTI leader has destroyed Pakistani society.
Khan ruined relations with friendly countries
Taking a dig at the former prime minister, who was ousted from power through vote of no-confidence last year, PM Shehbaz said that he ruined Islamabad’s relations with friendly countries who always supported Pakistan.
Khan accused Chinese companies of corruption, which angered Beijing, he added. “I cannot disclose the details here because my position doesn’t allow it.”
