Addressing a press conference here, Imran said Nawaz’s statements helped India considerably.

“Is PML-N a political party? A party is formed on an ideological basis. Parties remove leaders when they prove to be a burden for them,” Imran said, giving examples of international leaders,

The PTI chief went on to ask whether the prime minister will do anything regarding the issue.

“I know you people won’t because you are not a political party but a syndicate of corruption,” he said.

Nawaz, in a recent interview to Dawn newspaper, had said, “Militant organisations are active. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. Why can’t we complete the trial?”

His remarks were played up by the Indian media as an admission of Pakistan’s involvement in the terrorist attacks, even though similar questions and statements have been raised from civilian and security officials in Pakistan earlier.
