ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader in Sindh Assembly Haleem Adil Sheikh on Saturday said Imran Khan was selected as Prime Minister of Pakistan by the Allah Almighty and elected by 220 million people to change the destiny of the country. “These people call Prime Minister Imran Khan selected, yes! After a dark rule of these incompetent rulers, Allah Almighty selected a great leader for Pakistan, while elected by its own people”, Haleem said while addressing a press conference. Flanked by Senator Saifullah Abro, he said Nawaz Sharif, Shehbaz Sharif and Maryam Safdar were infected by corruption and rejected by the people of Pakistan, whereas Bilawal Zardari was ‘defected’. He said the infected, rejected and defected leaderships of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) were misleading the Kashmiris during their public rallies in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) with their ‘lies’ and ‘incorrect’ statements about Prime Minister Imran Khan who had been fighting the case of Kashmiri people in an unprecedented way. He said the prime minister’s efforts for Kashmiris were not only acknowledged by the local media, but also international ones including TRT world (Turkish public broadcaster), Al-Jazeera and others. “TRT world claims that PM IK [Imran Khan] is the most popular personality by far in the Indian [illegally] occupied Kashmir,” he said while citing a report of Turkish official television which quoted, “Due to IK’s strong and brave stance on Kashmir, Kashmiris have started to believe in Pakistan again. He shared the Curriculum Vitae (CV) of Bilawal with media, which according to him, allegedly sent by the PPP to the United States of America before his visit. “As Pakistan’s current government will not bow down before the west, I am here to facilitate your demands. I can be trusted by the west since my party facilitated over 340 US drone strikes in Pakistan during its tenure,” he read from the CV’s introductory paragraph. He also chided Maryam for being ‘extra’ character in the national politics and said the people of Kashmir would never pay heed to her lies. Haleem said both Bilawal and Maryam should be ashamed of themselves for using derogatory language against Prime Minister Imran Khan who showed the courage to say ‘Absolutely not’ to United States. He said just like Gilgit Baltistan, both the parties would face the worst-ever defeat in the AJK’s upcoming elections. He alleged that the PPP’s government in Sindh had only plundered the provincial exchequer during their rule spanning over 13 years, adding, the political system in the province was akin to dictatorship.
