Lashing out at the PTI government, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan Niazi has destroyed Pakistan in his 3½ years tenure as people are offering Fateha on the demise of economy, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a function in Lahore, the PML-N president said that Imran Niazi has ruined the economy of Pakistan and sold it to the IMF. He said time has come for the accountability of this government. 

He said the current rulers are in the habit of putting up plaques of their names on development projects actually launched by the PML-N government. But now the people would not become fool through these gimmicks as they have rejected the PTI in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa local government elections. He said those who voted for the PTI, are now regretting.

Shehbaz wondered why the government is not giving gas and electricity to people when it has the availability of both the utilities. He said that government bought gas at exorbitant price and committed corruption of billions. Nobody cared to launch a probe into mega scandals of rice, gas, medicines and Malam Jabba. 

“I have told three years ago about the NAB-Niazi nexus. Now is the time to end this nexus,” he added.

The PML-N president said that politics is the name to provide facilities to people and control inflation but the Imran Khan government has wrecked economy. He said it was the most unfortunate day when Imran became prime minister of this country. 

‘Phone calls’ saved govt during joint session, claims Kh Asif  

While addressing the function, the former defence minister and PML-N leader Khawaja Asif said that the series (of defeat) which has started from the KP will go as far as Karachi. He said nobody thought that Pakistan has to pay such a big ‘price’ for ‘change’. 

“Now the people have to burn bats to cook their food as there is no gas in stoves,” he mocked.  

He said that in the KP local government election, the government did not have the ‘facility’ that could enable it to win the polls, adding that had there been no phone calls, the PTI government would have been toppled in the joint session of parliament. 

The PML-N leader deplored that the government has made the State Bank a branch of the IMF. He said former FBR chairman Shabbar Zaidi and Commerce Advisor Razzaq Dawood have confessed that the country has become bankrupt.
