Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif talking to media after his visit to PKLI in Lahore on 22nd May, 2022.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has alleged that PTI Chairman Imran Khan wants a civil war in the country, but warned him that the nation will hold him by the collar for his “nefarious designs.”

“Imran Niazi wants to initiate a civil war in the country. But he is mistaken. The nation will never forgive him and will hold him by the collar,” Prime Minister Shehbaz said on Sunday while replying to a question about the long march on Islamabad by the PTI at the Pakistan Kidney & Liver Institute in Lahore.

When asked if the government would call in the army to stop the long march, visibly upset at the query the prime minister replied that a decision would be taken if and when needed.

The premier said Imran had devoted all his time to victimising his political opponents during his three-and-a-half years in power and did not spare time for welfare projects.

“The former prime minister didn’t have even a single moment to think about the welfare of the masses, while he remained riding the nerves of NAB [National Accountability Bureau] to victimise the opposition leaders.”

He alleged that Imran had directed his ex-adviser on accountability Shehzad Akbar to ensure that Shehbaz Sharif, suffering from backache problem, would sleep on the floor during the NAB custody.

The prime minister lambasted the PTI chairman for using inappropriate language against Maryam Nawaz in PTI’s Multan rally and said it made the people hold their heads in shame.

The premier regretted that the PTI government had damaged the PKLI by blocking funds for the institute offering free treatment to the poor. He recalled that former chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar visited the PKLI and asked about the Rs20 billion expenses incurred on the project, while corruption worth not a single penny could be detected in the project during the NAB probe.
