RAHIM YAR KHAN: Member National Assembly (MNA) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) central leader Hamza Shehbaz on Thursday said the Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) would be “clean bowled” in the upcoming general elections as the PTI chief didn’t know that “having a waistcoat wasn’t enough to become the prime minister”.
Addressing a workers’ convention of the PML-N in Rahim Yar Khan, Hamza said that hard work like that of Nawaz Sharif besides public service was the most important thing needed to lead the masses.
He said that Imran Khan would not be able to mislead the people with his baseless allegations anymore and if votes in the Senate polls were sold in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), it was Imran himself who was responsible.
The PML-N leader also said that after criticising Lahore’s metro bus for five years, the KP government was now working on the same project in the province. Training guns on his opponents, Hamza questioned, “What kind of change can Imran Khan possibly bring with the help of loan defaulters and land mafia?”
While criticising the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Hamza said the people had not forgotten how “Asif Ali Zardari looted the nation and each penny of his looted wealth would be recovered”. He also said that former president Zardari had visited China several times but the Chinese government only trusted Nawaz Sharif for its 46 billion dollar investment in the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
“People know that from Daanish Schools to the IT University, every development project has been completed in Rahim Yar Khan. I wonder what sort of deprivation had been felt by certain lawmakers after spending funds for five whole years,” Hamza said while speaking about south Punjab.
He also said that if the people entrusted the PML-N once again in the 2018 elections, another phase of development would be launched from Karachi to Khyber.
Earlier, Hamza spent visited the IT University and Gymnasium in Rahim Yar Khan. He also met PML-N office bearers while provincial ministers, MNAs, MPAs as well as other party leaders accompanied him.
