Shehbaz not brave enough to face death: Premier

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he was ready to even face death but Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif was scared to do so. 

Prime Minister Imran Khan’s remarks were in response to Shehbaz’s statement that the premier should only do as much injustice as he can tolerate himself later.

Speaking at an event on the government’s Ehsaas programme, the premier said that as Shehbaz was scared of dying before being fully able to enjoy the looted wealth stashed abroad. The premier regretted that it appears that the people in Pakistan are more considerate than the state.

PM Imran said that those who were in power from the last 30 years, now say that they will go to London for medical checkup. “They couldn’t even make a single hospital in their 30 years,” he said.

The premier expressed his hope that people would contribute more in the Ehsaas programme when they are fully satisfied with its transparency.

PM Imran said that as much as 10 percent of the property price will be given to people who identify Benami properties.
