'Pervaiz Khattak's visit to China along with PM meant Imran Khan had accepted Nawaz as PM'

RAWALPINDI: (Dunya News) – Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi on Sunday took Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan to the task, saying that while the PTI chairman criticised Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister (CM) Pervaiz Khattak was on China visit along with PM, reported Dunya News.

Hanif Abbasi said that Pervaiz Khattak going to China with PM Nawaz meant that PTI had accepted Nawaz Sharif as their prime minister.

Responding to his arch rival in the constituency, Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed’s allegations, Hanif Abbasi announced to send Sheikh Rasheed a defamation notice of Rs 10 billion. He added that Sheikh Rasheed will have to answer for his baseless allegations.

In his reaction to the allegations levelled by Imran Khan and Sheikh Rasheed in the Abbotabad public meeting, Abbasi said that PML-N believed in serving the people instead of holding public rallies all the time. “Look at the system of garbage removal in Rawalpindi; look at the hospitals in the city. All of it was done by PM Nawaz Sharif and PML-N”, he said.

He added that several playgrounds were made in the city and metro bus was also built in the city, helping 100,000 people to commute daily at subsidised fares. He alleged that Sheikh Rasheed didn’t even meet people of Rawalpindi.
