Pakistan Tehkreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has said that he would not form a coalition government with political parties whose leaders face money laundering cases.

“Why come to power when you can’t implement the party manifesto,” he said while speaking to the media in Quetta on Sunday.

“How can you rid the country of the scourge of corruption if you join hands with politicians who have been accused of looting billions,” he added.

The PTI chief said that the same parties which allegedly rigged the 2013 general elections are now crying foul over rigging in the upcoming one.

He criticised former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif, saying “he has mastered how to rig an election, his party think that an election is only free when his own minions are part of the caretaker setup.”

Separately, while addressing a gathering in Faisalabad, the former cricketer said that he has been waiting his entire political career for the July 25 polls.

Commenting on former Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah’s comment about how welcoming outsed PM Nawaz Sharif is better than performing haj, Imran said: “How can you welcome a person who has looted more than 300 billion rupees of the nation.”

He claimed that PML-N leader Abid Sher Ali’s father had himself said that Sanaullah was responsible for 18 murders.

“We must rid ourselves from these thieves that have been governing us for the last 30 years and defeat them with our vote,” he told the audience.

    There will be no hung parliament. PTI will win with clear majority.

    Hung parliament is a concept created by PMLN and them promoted by their paid surveys and paid media anchorpersons.

    Most of the Gallup surveys about US Presidential were always wrong. So I don’t trust these surveys at all. Recommend
