Saad asks Imran to learn lesson from PML-N, PPP

LAHORE, JUL 02 (DNA) – Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique urged Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to avoid leg-pulling and focus on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa instead.

“In trying to pull us down, Imran Khan is also pulling himself down as well. If we go down, your turn won’t come next,” he said while addressing party workers here on Saturday. He said that it was obvious PTI chief’s advisers were not giving him sound advice.

Imran should learn the lessons that the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) learnt after decades of rivalry, he said, adding that his party would not stoop to the level of the PTI leaders and its young workers who do not realise the decades of hard work and sacrifices political leaders gave for democracy.

Mentioning examples from the past, he said that the elected leaders have always been removed by unconventional means. “Why is that whenever PML-N is in power due to popular vote, there are attempts to remove it through unconventional means,” he questioned.

He pointed out that an honourable judge had likened the savior of the country to the Godfather which should not have happened. “If Imran Khan or Sheikh Rasheed had said this, we would have considered it political rivalry, but we were likened to the Sicilian mafia, which is a criminal organisation,” he told the gathering.

The minister passionately spoke out against conspiracies being hatched to dethrone Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. “Nawaz Sharif tried to put the country on the right track,” he said. “However, we were prevented from doing our work after securing votes,” he said.
