Calling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari a ‘certified criminal’, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has ruled out any future political coalition with the former.
Speaking to reporters in Karachi on Saturday, Khan said Zardari was as corrupt as deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif and vowed never to stand with the two political rivals, Express News reported.
Accusing the former prime minister of playing the victim card, the PTI chief said people were perplexed as to why this whole ‘kiyun nikala mujhe (why I was ousted?) drama’ was being played out.
“Nawaz Sharif was trying his best to be sent to jail,” he said, adding that the PML-N chief’s wish will be fulfilled in the money-laundering case. He vowed to bring back all the looted money to the country and spend it on education if elected to power in the upcoming polls.
Terming police the biggest problem of Karachi, the PTI chief claimed that the police force in Sindh and Punjab was involved in extrajudicial killings.
He said when police officials were ordered to kill political opponents, they also start killing innocents on their own.
Khan once again backed TV anchor Dr Shahid Masood’s claim regarding an international peadoohile ring being involved in eight-year-old Zainab’s brutal rape and murder in Kasur, saying ‘Masood might be telling the truth’.
“There’s huge difference between Zainab and Aasma’s cases,” he added.
Despite Khan’s statement, there were similarities reported in the two cases as minor girl Aasma was subjected to the same brutality as Zainab of Kasur. She went missing on January 13 from the Gujjar Garhi area of Khyber-Pakhtunkha’s Mardan district and was found raped and dead the next day.
