Pervaiz says Imran's politics is on the fall

Oct 05, 2015
Parvaiz Rasheed Sot  20-09   ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid said Sunday that   Imran Khan's politics had degenerated from 'Minar-e-Pakistan' to the Doongi Ground in Lahore within two years. "Popularity graph of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has declined sharply since 2013 when Imran Khan held a public meeting at the Minar-e-Pakistan," he said. The minister, in a statement, said PTI candidate  could turn currency notes into votes in the by-election. Rashid said the defeat of PTI candidate in Haripur by- election by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) candidate with 45,000 votes, clearly evidenced the PTI's failure in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Terming the allegation levelled by Sheikh Rashid of Awami Muslim League (AML) as a blatant lie, he said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif had paid Rs 4 million in taxes this year. The minister said instead of paying taxes, Imran Khan and Sheikh Rashid considered themselves deserving for financial support from Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP). On one side, he said, PTI was opposing Lahore's development projects and on the other, it was begging for votes from residents of the same city. (APP)
