Imran Khan to visit Islamabad’s all three Constituencies on Friday

Imran Khan to visit Islamabad’s all three Constituencies on Friday

Addressing a public meeting in Shahdadkot, Imran said that Asif Ali Zardari may contact Nawaz Sharif to save his theft and perhaps they both become brothers again.

"Six people include Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, Awami National Party leaders Asfandyar Wali and Ameer Haider Hoti, Qaumi Watan Party head Aftab Sherpao, Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl leader Akram Khan Durrani and Hafiz Saeed's son Talha Saeed", NACTA director Obaid Farooq said while briefing the Senate Standing Committee on Interior.

The Supreme Court on July 9 had summoned Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur and others in a case relating to a Rs 35 billion money-laundering scam.

Meanwhile, the party of slain former prime minister Benazir Bhutto on Wednesday decried what it called "pre-poll rigging", saying the reopening of a criminal case against its co-chairman was politically motivated.

She also says the 65-year-old is a black magic practitioner.

Ghafoor also dismissed any suggestion the military was forcing Sharif's supports to switch parties.

Pakistan will hold a general election on July 25. Picture taken June 28, 2018.

The PPP leadership, on the occasion, also advised Zardari not to appear before the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

The accusations echo those made by Sharif, who was convicted of corruption last week. Attacking Nawaz Sharif, Imran said the former PM did everything to protect his "looted wealth" and property, and started criticizing the Supreme Court's verdict passed on July 28 when the joint investigation team (JIT) was formed to probe the Panama scandal.

"But the tilt is more obvious [as it appears] PML-N will not be allowed to come to power and definitely PTI is the favorite of our establishment", he added, referring to elements of the military, judiciary and civil service. He has vowed to return to Pakistan on Friday.

Chief of the party, Imran Khan, a cricketer-turned-politician, addressed his audience here presenting the party's policy manifesto titled "Road to Naya Pakistan", which means "road to new Pakistan" in English.

Instead the military, which is the most powerful institution in the country and has ruled it for roughly half its 70-year history, will deploy more than 370,000 soldiers on polling day to help ensure the vote goes smoothly, Major General Asif Ghafoor said. "We don't have a loyalty".
