In the last leg of the pre-poll campaigning, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan urged the people of the country to vote for his party to “change the fate of Pakistan at any cost.”
Addressing a rally here on Monday, Khan claimed that all “status quo” parties were coming together to dislodge PTI in the elections, The News International reported.
Taking on the Sharif family, he said, “When I was a child; the US dollar was 5 (Pakistani) rupees. Today it is over 130 (Pakistani) rupees. Their children have become billionaires and have looted this country and left it behind.”
He further claimed that former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was enacting a drama to prove his innocence.
“Now, they (Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz) say they are being bitten by mosquitos in Adiala and are feeling the heat because they don’t have ACs. I have not seen acting like this even in films,” he added.
The cricketer-turned-politician asserted that the Sharif family looted billions of money from the country and took them abroad.
Khan also alleged that the former Punjab government did not undertake any development projects and was fooling the people through advertisements, Geo TV reported.
He claimed that the education sector of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) was better than other provinces in Pakistan.
“KP has a (Pakistani) Rs. 110 billion developmental budget. There are 9,000 doctors in the province. We made 50 new colleges and 10 new varsities,” he said.
On a related note, the deadline for campaigning by all the parties has come to an end at 12 am (Tuesday local time).
Pakistan is slated to go to polls on Wednesday.
