Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday has criticised opposition parties for what he termed “a circus on containers” aimed at evading accountability.

The prime minister while addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Havelian-Mansehra section of the Hazara motorway hit hard at the opposition parties.

After speaking about the particulars of the project, comments in PM speech were made in reference to the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam Fazl’s (JUI-F) recent ‘Azadi March’ in Islamabad,
“If there ever was an expert on dharnas, he is standing right here,” he said in self-reference, before mocking the opposition for giving up their protest too soon.
“I had said earlier that I would have agreed to all their demands if they could last a month on those containers. We [the PTI] did 126 days,” he recalled.

He also criticised the JUI-F chief for “using religion” to make money, said that he “issues whatever fatwas you want him to if the price is right”.

“[Using religion for personal benefit] is the biggest sin,” PM declared. “I pray that the Maulana is spared the judgment that is waiting for him in the hereafter.”

He also said that opposition parties had come to Islamabad to “blackmail” the government to shut pending corruption cases against their leaders.

The prime minister, however, reiterated that he would not spare “a single corrupt person” in the country. “I will betray my nation if I do so,” he added.

“I do not care about votes, but I do fear God and the hereafter,” he said, adding that the country had been facing financial difficulties because of said ‘corrupt politicians’.

“My message [to all my opponents] is that my God has trained me for challenges. I know how to win and how to face defeat. And I know how to stand back up after I have been defeated,” he said.

“It is my promise to God that I will not spare a single person who has plundered the nation’s money.”
