Imran Khan claims Shehbaz Sharif felt intimidated in Putin’s presence – Times of India


ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan mocked his successor Shehbaz Sharif, saying he felt intimidated in the presence of Russian President Vladimir Putin at the recently concluded Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Uzbekistan.
Khan spoke to the prime minister at a public meeting in Chakwal on Monday, claiming his legs were shaking in the presence of Putin at their bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the 22nd SCO summit, Geo News reported.
Khan criticized Sharif for his recent trips abroad after flooding in the country, saying: “Look at the insensitivity of Shehbaz. He visits (countries) abroad under such circumstances. What battle is he going to win on board while the country is flooded?”
Nitpicking the prime minister for his talk with UN secretary general Antonio Guterres, the PTI chairman said: “I have not seen any prime minister talking like Shehbaz did with the UN secretary general. He asked him for money.”
He further revealed that Guterres knows that 60 percent of Sharif’s cabinet has been released on bail.
“On what basis would he (Secretary General) give you money, given that he knows corruption cases have been registered against the Prime Minister?” Khan wondered.
The former prime minister also turned his guns on Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, who charged him with leaving the country in times of crisis.
“Bilawal also went abroad. They have been imposed (on us) because he will listen to their orders,” Khan added.
