Imran Khan, the former prime minister and current chair of the PTI questioned how long state institutions would permit the Zardari-Sharif “mafia” to “plunder” Pakistan after falling short in the Punjab Assembly due to the loss of support from PML-Q leader Chaudhry Shujaat.
A day after his meeting with the late president Asif Zardari, Shujaat wrote the letter. It instructed his MPAs to support Hamza Shehbaz, the PML-N candidate. After Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Dost Mohammad Mazari determined that PML-Q members’ votes were not counted in light of the party head’s letter, the PML-N leader was proclaimed the winner.
The former premier claimed on Saturday that the Zardari-Sharif “mafia” had brought the nation to its knees politically and economically “just to save their illegally earned money amassed over 30 years of plundering Pakistan.”
