OKARA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has termed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to be the “most corrupt person of Pakistan.”

Even Zardari is better than Nawaz in governance and controlling corruption in the country, Imran said while addressing a PTI rally as part of the political campaign in district Okara, days ahead of the by-election in NA-144 on October 11.

The PTI chairman alleged Nawaz of money laundering, tax evasion and corruption, demanding an investigation against the prime minister.

The PTI chief said he came to change the existing system for which the youth of Pakistan would have to come forward against the corrupt political status quo.

He said Pakistan will needed a transparent judicial system to provide justice on merit.

“This will keep Pakistan alive and sovereign till the end of this world,” he said.

Speaking against prime minister’s Kisan package, he said it was a ‘bluff’ with farmers.

“Out of total 14 points agenda, nine points were introduced in the last budget,” said the PTI chairman.

Taking on the criticism made by the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) that the PTI did not have the required experience to run the country, Imran said, “PML-N, their family and their corrupt party members have experience of mega corruption and how to become billionaires in days.”

    He maybe right .. but lets not forget that IK is the one who went to the USA to collect over $2 million in campaign contributions. Not sure if that qualifies as corruption but it sure raises questions about his ethics.Recommend

    This much hate is not good in any form! The immediate issue with this much hate is that the PMLN voters on the border line will NOT come to you when you keep spitting lies like this. In any case, you can cry all about Nawaz Sharif, 9 years of Mush couldnt find much, so good luck. Nawaz will answer you in elections just like NA 19. Recommend

    No Doubt Nawaz gets the honor of being most corrupt now after Zardari. His own business empires have flourished while country’s economy going down by just one economic indicator ( of the many economic indicators) public debt per capita. His own steel mills prospering even more while Pak Steel is destroyed due to corruption. This is called conflict of interest. Recommend

    @Ch. Allah Daad:
    I am no fan of IK or even PTI, but i agree with IK on this. You go abroad to see what these 2 brothers have made over past 20 years. Selling their empire could pay back Pakistan’s debt. Dont tell me they have made this money through legitimate ways. We dont have to be blind in love of our parties. Until we call wrong the wrong, right the right, we are not going to achieve anything. IK has millions of problems and you are right to pick him out on those, what he said about Nawaz or zardari is very much true. Thats all i can say, you want to believe it or not, its upto you.Recommend

    Bravo! Voice of the nation. We don’t have clean water in our area, PMLN did work on main roads for show off, once you entered into the streets of lahore then you’ll be able to see the reality of Khadm -e- Aala’s paris. We need education, employment, better health facilities, clean water more than metro buses and orange lines. IK is a straight forward person, one may disagree with his aggression but he is truly raising our voice. Recommend

    Imran Khan should put up or shut up. If he believes somebody is corrupt, why does not he approach a court of law rather than using a political rally to sally that person’s image. Imran Khan is desperate for power and it is evident from his perpetual anger and wild accusations.Recommend

    As an overseas Pakistani, I can tell you lots of overseas Pakistanis have given him money and moral support.
    I haven’t…
    But almost everyone sees him as the only person in the current system who can do any good…
    Overseas Pakistanis have a lot of money, mostly made from hard work and they are not shy about giving it for the progress of Pakistan. 2 million is nothing….Recommend

    Zardari and Nawaz Sharif are together a tag-team drenched in corruption and all manner of shenanigans. In the final analysis it doesn’t really matter who scores highest in the corruption dept, since both these individuals take the cake. But what is interesting is to see PPP cozying up to PTI and vice-versa these days…Kind of gets one thinking about IK and what makes him tick.Recommend

    I don’t blame you for asking. We have not seen any honest person after Quaid and Ayub. But now you have one and he stands out against a corrupt man. Imran Khan has made a unique hospital, another coming up in Peshawar. He has given an Oxford standard University and college. He has is honest and fears Allah. Nawaz Sharif while in exile added another steel mill in Saudi Arabia, had his hair transplant, shifted his sons to London, laundered money assisted by Ishaq Dar, bought property in the most expensive area, expanded business even with our enemy through his son and meanest of all he negated the two nation theory while addressing an Indian audience. This is your leader. No wonder he is known as the MOST CORRUPT MAN IF PAKISTAN.Recommend

    So you have a problem that he started another business in saudia and had hair transplant? Go see videos of Imran in 2006 and 2007. His hair really thinned out and not with some magic they have grown again and let’s not forget botox every other year. Well now I have proved Imran Khan the worst politician because he not only had hair transplant but also botoxRecommend
