Imran flayed for ‘personal attacks’ on rivals

Updated Jun 19, 2017 08:53am

PESHAWAR: PML-N provincial president Amir Muqam has criticised PTI chairman Imran Khan for what he calls personal attacks on politicians and advised him to compete his rival politicians in initiating development schemes and alleviation of poverty in the country.

In a statement here on Sunday, he said that Imran Khan had nothing solid to prove against his rival politicians but he was in the habit to use derogatory language and level baseless allegations to influence people.

Mr Muqam, who is also adviser to prime minister, said that by appearing before the JIT, Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif proved that they were innocent and had the courage to face any forum of accountability.

He said that Panama Leaks case was also about to end and Sharif family would emerge successful while Imran Khan would be unable to face the nation in future.

Mr Muqam said that the PTI chief should focus his attention on improvement of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government during the remaining period of its tenure otherwise none of his party’s candidates would be able to win elections in 2018.

He expressed the hope that PML-N would win maximum seats in the next general elections as its popularity graph was growing up owing to the policies of the federal government.

The PNL-N leader advised KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak to copy Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in development schemes. The KP government, he said, should focus on welfare of people.
