In a fierce tirade against former prime minister Imran Khan, Federal Minister for Planning Ahsan Iqbal has said that like a drunk driver, Imran is crashing his vehicle into constitutional institutions of the country while vowing that the new government will not spare any criminal and violator of the Constitution, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Addressing a presser in Lahore on Sunday, the planning minister announced that legal action would be initiated against former National Assembly speaker Asad Qaiser and deputy speaker Qasim Suri for subverting the Constitution

Turning the direction of his gun towards Imran, Mr Ahsan said that former premier was constantly playing with country’s interests for the sake of his political survival. He said like a stoned man, he was smashing his vehicle into constitutional institutions, unaware of the damage he was causing. 

“Imran Khan is causing harm to Pakistan’s foreign policy in order to hide his failure in politics,” Ahsan maintained.

He held that the former premier even harmed our relations with Gulf countries when he sold the gifts in markets which they presented to him as country’s chief executive. 

“Imran has brought shame on us by selling gifts of foreign dignitaries,” he added. 

The planning minister alleged that Imran Khan wanted to isolate Pakistan after picking up quarrel with each and every friend of Pakistan and world powers. He said that Imran vitiated country’s ties not only with America and Europe but also with China. 

He alleged that the Imran government intentionally dented the CPEC project. 

On Punjab politics, he said a strange drama was being played in the province. 

“It is beyond us what enmity Imran is harbouring against Punjab,” Mr Ahsan added.
