Imran to issue whitepaper on ‘Sharif family’s corruption’

Urges masses to do jihad against Sharifs with words

Aiming to further escalate the movement against the current regime, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Friday vowed to bring a whitepaper against the Sharif family “to expose them in front of the people”.

Addressing a party workers’ convention in Multan, he urged the masses to do jihad against the Sharif family with words. “I invite you all to come to Islamabad to protest against the ‘foreign conspiracy’ being hatched with the help of Mir Jaffar and Mir Sadiqs … we have to foil it,” said the former premier, vowing to bring two million people to the federal capital. “This will be our most important movement yet… a gang of thieves has been imposed upon us but every child of this nation will struggle against it to attain true independence,” he added.

Imran said that he will never allow the “three stooges” to rule the country, saying that the nation will make fresh elections happen. He added that Rs40 billion worth of cases are pending against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. “I will bring whitepaper against them to expose their corruption… Those who have their money outside the country will never take a stand against their foreign master.”

This mafia, the former premier said, is involved in tarnishing people’s character and it intimidates them. “They gave money to a woman in 2018 to write a book against me… after Eid, they are planning to do a similar thing to tarnish my image,” Imran claimed. He also vowed to fight the mafia till his last breath, urging people to do jihad against them with words. A day earlier, the PTI chief had said that he and his wife, Bushra Bibi, were being targeted with fake news and accused the incumbent government of peddling propaganda for its “political gains”.

“I am being targeted with fake news and allegations under the government’s supervision after a clear defeat in [their] political narrative,” Imran said. “Enemy uses speculation as a weapon.” He made these remarks while talking to a delegation of the Council of Pakistan Newspapers Editors who called on him.
