LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday said that both Sharif Brothers were responsible for the Model Town tragedy.
“The two (Sharif) brothers are responsible for the Model Town incident,” said Imran while addressing a joint opposition protest rally in Lahore.
The PTI chairman said that Model town massacre was preplanned as he knows sharif brothers for past forty years.
“Model town massacre was preplanned, I know Sharifs for forty years. They are fascist,” he added.
While commenting on the difference between Kyhber-Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) and Punjab police, he said that there is apparent difference between both police departments as KP is completely depoliticized and arresting culprits, while on the other hand no criminal has ever been arrested by Punjab police over Model town tragedy and Zainab murder case.
He said that there is no place in the world where police shoot at citizens but here in Punjab, police kills innocent people.
The PTI chief during his speech lambasted the parliament for allowing a ‘criminal’ to be elected as a party president.
“I curse the parliament that made a criminal the president of a party,” he said.
Imran assured PAT chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri of his allegiance.
Regarding Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid’s announcement that he would resign from the National Assembly and his invitation to Khan also resign from his seat, the PTI chief said “I will consult my party over it, and it is very likely that we may join you [Sheikh Rasheed].”
