Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former federal minister Abid Sher Ali reached Lahore from London on Thursday after a gap of four and a half years, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Abid Sher Ali, who arrived on board an international airline, will head to Faisalabad after holding meetings with party leadership in Lahore.
The PML-N workers, who had gathered at Allama Iqbal International Airport, shouted the slogans of ‘Sher, Sher’ to welcome him.
Abid Sher Ali claimed that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), an alliance of the opposition parties in the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government, had held far large public gatherings than those of the PTI.
Speaking to 24News on arrival at the Lahore airport from London, he accused the former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan of patronizing the petrol mafia. “He (Imran) is a certified ‘looter’. Fawad Chaudhry, information minister in the PTI government, had hired some people for the projection of Imran Khan to whom he paid millions of rupees for their services,” he alleged.
That money, he added, belonged to the people of Pakistan. “I want to tell you Fawad. Whatever you do, you will not be able to escape punishment. You will be behind the bars,” he warned.
Former federal minister went on to say that the reason why PTI leaders were now targeting the state institutions was because they knew that their ‘stories of corruption’ were in the knowledge of these institutions. “But you will not be able to befool the people,” he stated categorically.
“We will expose Imran before the people,” the PML-N leader said, adding, “He destroyed the country’s economy. But we will not sit idle. And will give a befitting reply to him. Our leader Nawaz Sharif’s message will reach and every household.”
Abid claimed that false and fabricated cases were made against Nawaz just to send him out of the country.
