Imran Khan and Dr Tahirul Qadri are both “pawns of the establishment” meant to undermine the PML-Nawaz, said Law Minister Rana Sanaullah on Thursday.
Addressing reporters at the Punjab Assembly, the minister said that Dr Qadri’s public meeting at December 23 at Minar-i-Pakistan was being backed by the establishment and the MQM. He said Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan and Dr Qadri were puppets. He said that the establishment’s attempt to split the PML-N’s vote bank in Punjab through the PTI rally at Minar-i-Pakistan had failed, and its “new pawn” Qadri would fail too.
