Shehbaz requested US to help assume power for third time, says Imran

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has alleged Punjab chief minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif on Friday to have requested the United States (US) to help Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) assume federal power for the third time.
Khan addressed a press conference in the capital city and criticised ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) by saying that political elite are responsible for whatever is happening in the country and ‘no enemy is needed’.
PTI chief said that Punjab chief minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif ‘wears a new hat’ every single day for grandstanding. Leaders of Pakistan are giving bad name to the country.
He alleged Shehbaz Sharif of requesting US authorities during governor’s rule to have PML-N come to power again while PML-N president Nawaz Sharif and law minister Rana Sanaullah have harboured extremist groups.
Khan said that United States (US) failed in the 16-year-long war on terror and is dumping the burden on Pakistan. He stressed that the people rendered sacrifices in war on terror and US is passing anti-Pakistan remarks.
PTI leader alleged Nawaz Sharif of assuring US authorities that ‘he was there best friend’. PTI chief also alleged the political elite of Pakistan did not value people’s self-respect.
Imran Khan mentioned that foreign minister Khawaja Asif stated during his US visit that Pakistan needs to ‘clean its home’.
Pakistan has destroyed her tribal areas on word of the US. Pakistan desires peace in Afghanistan the most, he added.
