Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will land in Adiala jail as an outcome of the Panamagate hearing in the Supreme Court (SC).

Addressing a workers convention in Islamabad on Sunday, the PTI leader warned PM Sharif of the possibility of landing behind bars. "You will not go to Jeddah, but to Adiala jail," said Khan, referring to Nawaz Sharif's exile in 1999 after his government was toppled by the then Gen Pervez Musharraf.

Khan vowed to "either celebrate victory in Islamabad or take to the streets against the PML-N leadership" after the apex court decides the Panamagate case, which is set to resume on Monday.

He accused the PML-N of planning to attack the SC if the outcome of Panamagate case was against the Sharifs. He warned PM Sharif against any such attempt and said that the entire nation would stand with the apex court.

PML-N has destroyed the parliament as well as all other institutions, said Khan, adding, "All except the apex court and the army".

He lauded the joint investigation team (JIT) for exposing the contradictions and lies of the PML-N's leadership.

The JIT did an outstanding job because it was under the SC, he said.

He asked the PML-N workers to stop supporting their leaders for the sake of the future generations and the country.
