PTI chief Imran Khan said Maryam Nawaz Sharif is responsible for the downfall of Nawaz Sharif.
“Had Maryam Nawaz not been so arrogant, perhaps Nawaz Sharif would not have been in such bad state,” he told Awaz host Shahzad Iqbal on Wednesday. According to him, the former first daughter was behind the PML-N’s rona dhona [whining] and mujhay kion nikala [Why was I ousted?] narrative.

The PTI chief said that the verdict in the Avenfield reference would prove that the former PM was involved in money-laundering. “Had this not been the case, they just had to show three or four documents and the case would have been winded up,” he said.
According to him, all the poor prisoners should be set free in Pakistan if the verdict is in favor of Mr. Sharif. “If there’s no accountability even after committing corruption worth billions, there should be no law then,” said the PTI chairperson.
Mr. Khan said that the PML-N would not benefit in terms of sympathy if the verdict is against Mr. Sharif. “He is no Nelson Mandela who took a stand for the country’s freedom,” he said. “He has taken a stand just to save his money.”
