Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan on Friday reacting to the reinstatement of Rana Sanaullah said a “criminal” has been made a law minister in Punjab.
Rana Sanaullah took oath as the Punjab law minister on Friday at the Governor House Lahore after a joint investigation team (JIT) investigating Model Town incident gave him a clean-chit.
“The biggest criminals of Punjab, like Rana Sanaullah, are being given ministries time and again,” Imran told a rally in Ghanche district of Baltistan. He said there was no justice in Punjab. “Police protects criminals.”
Imran Khan along with his wife Reham Khan, Chaudhry Sarwar and Sayed Zulqarnain Shah are on a campaign trail to root for PTI candidates ahead of the June 8 Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) legislative assembly elections.
He accused Nawaz Sharif of spending Rs50 million on his security at Raiwind, saying that amount could be used to provide subsidy on wheat for the people of G-B.
PTI chairman asked people not to vote for the tried and tested lot of politicians in the upcoming elections. “You will see your brother (Imran) will take the status quo wickets of Nawaz and Zardari with one ball,” he told a cheering crowd.
Impressed by the turnout, which is said to be the biggest in Ghanche Valley’s history, Imran said when he entered politics people mocked him, but now his party is everywhere. “PTI has knocked PPP out and it’s now PML-N’s turn to face the music,” he roared.
He praised the beauty and the peaceful nature of the people of G-B saying he prays that may this culture of peace spread through the country. “No robberies, theft or murders in Ghanche. If I tell this to people in Punjab they will think that I’m joking.”
He said there are areas in Punjab where one is sure to be mugged if he steps out after dark.
Imran is scheduled to address election rallies in Hunza, Ghizer and Gilgit during his visit of the region where election fever has already gripped the people.
