ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday continued his diatribe against the parliament, saying his use of the Urdu damned “a mild word to use” for “such a parliament”.
On Wednesday, the PTI chief had cursed the parliament for “make a criminal the president of a party”, while referring to the approval of Election Act 2017 by the parliament that paved the way for Nawaz Sharif to become the head of the PML-N after his disqualification.
Imran was addressing a joint opposition protest rally to seek justice for the Model Town tragedy in Lahore.
On Thursday, the PTI chief tweeted: “In fact in this specific context ‘laanath’ is a mild word to use. If anyone disagrees, I challenge them to do a public poll on what ppl think of such a Parliament. I can guarantee most will condemn it.”
He posted on Twitter: “When a Parliament, which must protect nation’s interests, passes a person-specific law allowing a disqualified person guilty of Rs 3 bn money laundering, tax evasion, concealment of assets, forgery & perjury to become head of a pol party, then such a law is a “laanath” on Parl”.
The PTI chairman finally announced he would be addressing a press conference this afternoon in which he would make “explosive revelations”.
