Nawaz Sharif “Protecting India’s Interests,” alleges Imran Khan

Former Pak PM

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, 65, attacked India on the last day of campaigning accusing the country’s neighbour of “spreading conspiracies” that the July 25th elections was being “rigged”.

The cricketer-turned-politician hit out at deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif who is in jail on corruption charges, saying the PML(N) had always tried to defame the Pakistan armed forces and institutions.

“He tried to do this through the Dawn leaks and then by claiming that the Pakistani establishment was behind the Mumbai terror attacks,” Khan said. The former cricketer told the rally in Karachi that India wanted a weak government in Pakistan.

Khan who is fighting for the Karachi seat said Nawaz Sharif was protecting India’s interests and was trying to damage the credibility of the polls to be held on Wednesday.

“Now when he(Nawaz) knows that his party is facing certain defeat in the elections, he is saying the elections are going to be rigged,” Khan told the people gathered at the rally.

“The international establishment who are creating doubts about the elections want a weak government which can be controlled like robots but that will not happen now because the people of Pakistan wanted true democracy and the wind of change would be seen in the elections,” Imran said.

PTI is involved in a bitter three-cornered fight against Nawaz Sharif’s PML(N) and Bilawal Bhutto’s Pakistan’s People’s Party(PPP). Several experts and pollsters have said PTI is leading in the elections, however, most of the country is an open battleground with several reports pointing towards a close fight at the hustings.
