LAHORE: LAHORE: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Saturday condemned the assassination attack on PTI Chairman Imran Khan and shared about cancelling a presser that he was supposed to address following his return from China the same day.
The prime minister, while addressing a press conference in Lahore, extended his wishes to Khan and other injured in the attack for a speedy recovery, and prayed for the victim who was shot dead in the attack.
“The attack is condemnable, however, when the nation is being pushed towards devastation by false narratives it is my responsibility that I play a positive role to protect the people,” he said, urging the PTI chief to present evidence to support his allegations.
PM Shahbaz further said that Khan is damaging the country through his “false and cheap conspiracies”, adding that he is also building negative narratives against the institutions.
During the presser, a video was shown to the journalists which had a compilation of Khan’s clips since 2011 where he can be heard speaking about the army and military officials.
The premier maintained that if Khan successfully shows evidence to the people that he was behind the attack, then “I don’t have a right to continue to hold the Prime Minister’s Office.”
PM Shehbaz says it’ll be “injustice’ if courts, nation remain spectators when Imran Khan’s allegations against institutions, govt prove false
