Labelling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) as “B-team of President Asif Ali Zardari”, Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has warned people that voting for PTI in next elections is like empowering Zardari for another five years.
Addressing party workers at Wah Cantonment, the PML-N stalwart said that Imran Khan never criticised the government, MQM, ANP and PML-Q but always criticised the PML-N. In return, President Zardari and PPP have never criticised the PTI leadership, he added.
Analysts are split over the ongoing antipathy between the PTI and PML-N and one section has been voicing strong apprehensions that it may benefit the PPP in a trilateral contest. The PTI is already hurting the PML-N in its central Punjab stronghold by attracting youth and anti-government votes.
Chaudhry Nisar said that all those who were in the lead team of General Musharraf are now in the frontline of PTI and masses are well aware of these Khans, Legharis, Tareens and other feudals.
He said that the PML-N is not striving for power but to save the country from corruption and plunder. He said Imran Khan should present real facts before the people instead of scandalising others.
Nisar said that the present government is the most corrupt in the history of Pakistan and that the ministers are only making money.
He was of the view that the federal government was being run by advisers and ministers who were over 60 in number, and were delivering nothing tangible but are a burden on the national exchequer.
He said that the country needs patriotic leadership in these hard times and added that it was battle of law not war for power.
Pointing out rampant corruption, inflation and poverty in the country, he urged the people to get ready for a change in coming polls.
