LAHORE (Dunya News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan said on Wednesday members of his party received threats and offers of money and were told that a red line had been drawn on him [Imran Khan] and he had no future.

Addressing the PTI parliamentary party leaders in Lahore on Wednesday, he said that after Almighty Allah, the people of Pakistan were the inheritors of the country and only the Higher Power could draw a red line. He said it had been decided to change the opinion of people by force, adding that “I don’t know what kind of genius make such decisions.” 

The people were brutally tortured during the PTI’s long march on May 25 last year, he said. 

Turning his guns on the current ruler, the former PM went on to say that Pakistan was lagging behind the rest of the world due to rule by thieves for the past 30 years. He said the two families had looted the country and got NRO. They did not provide any roadmap to fix the country s economy, he added. 

Mr Khan said, “Country’s economy took nosedive soon after the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) alliance got their Rs1,100 billion corruption cases withdrawn and they think Shehbaz Sharif is a genius."
