LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has backed out from his word twice and yet he blames us of being scared of him, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahbaz Sharif said during a press conference on Tuesday.

“He [Khan] had earlier announced that he will contest elections from the same constituency as Nawaz Sharif but he retreated,” Sharif said.

“On another occasion, Khan sahib raised corruption charges against us regarding Metro bus but when Transparency International investigated the issue; Khan did not respond.”

“He has participated in eight elections in total and lost in all eight of those,” Sharif remarked.

The PTI chairman and Sharif’s war of words has aggravated as the polls come near.

“How can he not criticise federal government and Zardari who resorted to corruption, load shedding and has been involved in rental power cases?” he questioned Khan who has repeatedly blamed Sharif’s of corruption during their rule.

Sharif further stated that he believed the arrow, cycle and bat have joined hands ahead of the polls.

Earlier, Imran Khan had challenged PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif to a live TV debate and said Sharif should not fear the confrontation if he is a true leader.

Apart from his rebuttal of allegations raised by PTI Chairman, Sharif also spoke on the recent attacks on the Awami National Party (ANP), Pakistan Peoples party (PPP) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) activists.

“Interim PM and the Election Commission of Pakistan is responsible to put a stop to these attacks and we strongly condemn them,” he said.

Pakistan has finally got a leader ; IMRAN KHAN ; Imran Khan has given Pakistan Shaukat Khanum hospital , and he has given Pakistan cricket 17 years of his life , he gave world cup to Pakistan , he made us proud in the world , he is our pride , Pride of Pakistan , but when today he fell down from that lift , there was no ambulance no doctor no 1122 rescue team for his help but he could not get a stretcher even today.His workers pick him up but even at that time he says ill get up myself.he loses lot of blood and gets evacuated in his car and while he gets evacuated he keeps on reciting kalma and nothing else.he gets 11 stiches ;6 in front of head and 5 in back of head with 2 hairline fractures , neck injury and a vetebral column minor fracture due to which his movement gets restricted for 3 weeks... This is what we call a leader who has no protocol no proper protection , he just mingles up with the people of his country and in his all processions there is no space between people and the stage whereas all other leaders keep proper distance and no one can get near stage and even people sit in bullet proof containers in this country yet ladies and people hear him in rain. ECP and the state are responsible to give him protection and medical cover as hi is the leader of this nation....... People of Pakistan wake up.Protect him as u wont get another one like him...vote for Imran Khan.He is the last hope of Pakistan....He is our national hero.there wont be another chance.IMRAN KHAN IS A LEGEND and we salute our legends , so dedicate 11th May to Imran Khan and his party leaders......dont see candidates just vote Imran Khan..May ALLAH help Pakistan...

@Shahbano:

Imran Khan wants to be an engineer, without going through an appenticeship, a surgeon without practicle xperince, a commander without soldiering, a Government chief withou any expeience as a junior minister. He reckons that all he has to do is to criticise and the common man will be fool enough to replace the experienced one with a person who has nothng to show.

This is too short and very poor to offer! The people of Pakistan need an expierenced leadership at this junctue. Nawaz Sharif is te experienced and decent politician. The Man to be trusted! He must find a modus operandi with the military business ceo's.
