NAROWAL: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal thoroughly lambasted Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday for misleading youth by inciting them against the ruling party.
“A number of masqueraders came in the past to mislead young, but the young rejected them and elected former prime minister Nawaz Sharif,” he said addressing a youth convention of the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) in Narowal.
He added pointing towards Imran’s expedition towards rulership that they could not place key of the destination of 200 million people in an amateur’s hand.
Ahsan Iqbal said a political leader read them stories of prosperity and development in India and Bangladesh, but he forgot that they had political stability in their country and as for corruption was concerned they were far ahead of us.

He said if Imran and Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed were sent to Europe or Japan, they would have led even those countries to devastation. He said Imran was the commander of destruction brigade in the country.
“Despite passage of four years, the PTI government could not build even a single metro project in the capital city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Peshawar,” he said.
Taunting at the cricketer-turned-politician, the interior minister said there was one good thing Imran was master at and that was collecting charity.

“So, if the PML-N got into power the next time, it will establish a ministry of charity for him,” he said adding that people have realised that the PTI chief was incapable to run the government which could be visible through shrinking attendance at his public rallies.
He also said the China Pakistan Economic Corridor project will change the destiny of the country.
