“Shahbaz was brought to power not because he is intelligent but because he will follow all his orders, the first being a hike in petrol prices,” Imran said. He said these things during a rally in Upper Dir district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. “Whenever the IMF ordered the PTI government to increase the prices of petrol and electricity, the previous government never bowed to their pressure,” Khan said.
‘I do not bow down to anyone except Allah’
Imran said that Pakistan is my ‘life and death’. I do not bow down to anyone except Allah. He said that when the IMF asked to increase the prices of petrol and electricity, the PTI government had reduced the price of petrol by Rs 10. We wanted to save our people from global inflation. Our goal was to provide relief to people from inflation by bringing in money from outside. Due to the cost of petrol and electricity, the prices of other things also increase.
‘Shahbaz came to power to avoid punishment’
Imran Khan also surrounded Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa rally. He alleged that Shahbaz Sharif has come to power only to avoid his corruption cases. Imran said, “The day Shahbaz Sharif took oath as the prime minister, both he and his son were to be charged under the FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) case.” The reason for his coming to power is to avoid punishment.
