Nawaz Sharif's ideology is corruption: Imran Khan
HAFIZABAD - Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Friday said ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s ideology was corruption.

“Nawaz Sharif says he is an ideology, his ideology is corruption,” he said while addressing a gigantic crown in Hafizabad.

Imran had taken a jibe at Nawaz Sharif's statement in a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz rally on November 19 in which he claimed that those who talk about minus Nawaz Sharif don’t know that “Nawaz is the name of an ideology. All of you are this ideology. This ideology will bring a revolutionary change in the country."

"Nawaz Sharif who has looted Rs300 billion from the people has done nothing to stop Ishaq Dar or Khawaja Asif," he said. "We will provide more proofs against Asif's corruption in the coming days," he claimed.

"How can a country where all the rulers are corrupt ever progress? This is why we all need to prepare and fight this corruption mafia."

A country which works to protect its people and ensure justice becomes invincible, Imran remarked.

On the class-based inequalities, he said that petty thieves are put in jails but big dacoits are sitting in the parliament.

"Corruption is the abuse of power," he said, adding people in power should not be allowed to favour themselves.

Rulers have been siphoning money from the people of Pakistan, Imran remarked. "This money should be spent on the people."

Pakistan has two main problems, unemployment and inflation, both of which are a product of rampant corruption in the country, said Imran.

The menace of unemployment is affecting the youth of the country, he said, adding that the youth are on the lookout for better employment opportunities.

Earlier, the PTI chief, accompanied by senior party leaders such as Shafqat Mahmood, Aleem Khan and Awami Muslim League Head Sheikh Rasheed, has reached the rally site.
