Islamabad (July 31, 2017): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Asif Kirmani hit out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Monday, claiming that the latter submitted fake documents in the foreign funding case against him in the Supreme Court.
Speaking to media, Kirmani questioned how could someone [Imran Khan] who was not afraid to commit fraud in the courts be the public’s leader.

“PTI is a fraud party. Its leader is not ashamed to present fake documents in the [Supreme Court]. This is the height of shamelessness,” the politician said.
“Imran Khan, the nation is asking you, why haven’t you declared your offshore assets? Why are you concealing your assets? Why are you still receiving gifts from your [divorced] wife?” he questioned.
Calling the PTI’s rally on Sunday a “musical night”, Kirmani said Imran Khan had brought Quaid-e-Azam’s Pakistan to the “brink of a disaster”.
“Imran Khan once said he would never want to be a [leader] like Sheikh Rasheed. Now he has nominated the same man as the prime minister,” Kirmani remarked.
“Imran Khan, your politics will end and you will be in jail once you are disqualified in the foreign funding case,” he continued.
Kirmani said his party respects the Supreme Court’s decision which disqualified Nawaz Sharif as prime minister, but “there is another court: the public. And Nawaz Sharif will again win there”.
‘SC decision broke our hearts but not our hopes’.Earlier, addressing the media at the same venue, PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry said Nawaz Sharif can be taken out of the PM House but not from the people’s hearts.
“The Supreme Court’s decision has broken our hearts but not our hopes,” he said.
Chaudhry said the reason for which one cannot dismiss a clerk from his job, cannot be used to remove the elected prime minister of a country.
He said it seems that Nawaz Sharif has been punished for a sin he did not commit.
Speaking prior to Chaudhry, PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi said that “Imran conspiracy has been unearthed in front of the Supreme Court”.
PML-N’s Daniyal Aziz also lashed out at the role of opposition parties.
