Imran Khan is a strategic partner of Taliban, says Saad Rafique

LAHORE: Federal Minister for Railways, Saad Rafique Sunday labeled Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan as a strategic partner of the Taliban militants.

Reacting to Imran Khan’s speech to a big gathering in Karachi, Saad Rafique said PTI was given a fake mandate in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by entangling Awami National Party (ANP) into Taliban attacks.

He said Imran Khan will continue to draw flak until he stops telling lies.

“Imran Khan’s merit team comprises turncoats and plunderers,” the Federal Minister maintained, adding, ‘if PTI is a party of a common man, then why is it that Imran Khan is surrounded by feudal lords’.

He questioned as to how those who failed to hold local bodies elections in KP talk in favour of organizing such polls.

He said the person who made false claims of respecting the judges is actually responsible for maligning the judiciary.

“Imran Khan wants to lay the foundation of ‘Naya Pakistan’ on fraud, coercion and allegations,” Saad Rafique maintained.
