Imran took with full power, but he “wasted the efforts of Army” PM Shehbaz

ISLAMABAD:  MiniPrimester Shehbaz Sharif on Friday stated that former premier and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan was dragged into office with “full force” but did nothing in return and instead “wasted the efforts of the Pakistan Army”.

The current prime minister insisted that he had nothing to do with and was unconcerned about former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa supporting the PTI leader while speaking at the Hazara Electric Supply Company ceremony.

PM Shehbaz mentioned that Imran ruined the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and “conducted the funeral” for it after offending and angering China. Shehbaz complained, “China, our friend, had assisted us and invested $60 billion in the project,” adding that rather than expressing gratitude, Imran started making derogatory remarks about China.

He continued by saying that Imran was unbeatable when it came to using harsh words and that the PTI chairman had destroyed Pakistani society. The prime minister continued by saying that, on the other side, his coalition administration was working to strengthen ties with allies.

Shehbaz congratulated the people during his speech and said that the establishment of the Hazara Electric Supply Company had been a long-standing demand of the people. He insisted that the business had been split off from the Peshawar Electric Supply Company and would “immediately” take the necessary actions (PESCO).

He also let the Hazara people know that instructions had been issued for the Sui Gas projects to be finished as soon as possible. PM Shehbaz recalled how his brother, the ex-PM Nawaz Sharif, was instrumental in putting an end to the nation’s 20-hour load shedding period.
