Opposition determined to throw PM Imran out, says Hamza
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz said on Friday that the opposition parties had now made up its mind that they would not relent unless they threw ‘selected’ Prime Minister Imran Khan out of the corridors of power, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Talking to the media outside an accountability court (AC) in Lahore, he accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of practicing double standards. “You had made tall promises to the nation but the truth of the matter is that people don’t have enough food to sustain themselves,” he said, adding, “Now it is not yours, but our turn to wage Jihad against you.”
He said the situation with respect to the dengue virus in Punjab was pathetic. “Two to three patients are lying on a single bed,” he said, and asked as to why the virus had reborn when PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif had eliminated it when he was the Punjab chief minister.
Warning of a severe gas shortage in the winter season, Hamza alleged that the present government had made expensive LNG deals.
Earlier, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) submitted to the AC an application, seeking hearing of money laundering and assets beyond sources of income case filed against Shehbaz Sharif’s family on a daily basis.
While, the court, on the other hand, while summoning other witnesses adjourned hearing of the case until November 19.
Hamza was allowed to leave by the court when he said he had to go to Sheikhupura to attend a funeral, while counsel for Shehbaz Sharif told the court that his client could not show up because he was in Islamabad.
