ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Sunday said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will land in Adiala jail as an outcome of the Panamagate hearing in the Supreme Court (SC).
Addressing a workers’ convention in Islamabad, the PTI leader warned the prime minister of the possibility of landing behind bars. “You will not go to Jeddah, but to Adiala jail this time,” said Khan, referring to Nawaz Sharif’s exile in 1999 after his government was toppled by the then army chief Gen Pervez Musharraf.
Khan vowed to ‘either celebrate victory in Islamabad or take to the streets against the PML-N leadership’ after the apex court decides the Panamagate case, which is set to resume on Monday (today).
Imran said no foreign power could save the premier from accountability. “I have heard they are seeking support from the UAE to save themselves from accountability. But neither [Indian PM] Narendra Modi nor [US President] Donald Trump or the Qatari prince or any other country in the world can save Nawaz Sharif,” he said.
He also accused the PML-N of planning an attack on the SC if the outcome of Panamagate case was against the Sharifs. He warned PM Sharif against any such attempt and said that the entire nation would stand with the apex court.
PML-N has destroyed the parliament as well as all other institutions except the apex court and the army, he said, as he lauded the joint investigation team (JIT) for exposing the contradictions and lies of the PML-N’s leadership.
The JIT did an outstanding job because it was under the SC, he said.
He asked the PML-N workers to stop supporting their leaders for the sake of the future generations as well as the country.
