Nawaz’s speech published in Indian newspaper proves PML-N promotes Indian agenda: PM Imran

A day after convicted former premier Nawaz Sharif’s no-holds-barred onslaught against what he called the “parallel state” in Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that Nawaz Sharif’s speech and the story published in Times of India reflects PML-N promotes Indian agenda. “Once again a fugitive sitting in London is maligning the state institutions”, the premier said.

“Sharif’s PML-N has once again promoted the Indian agenda. New Delhi wanted to vilify Pakistan’s state institution ahead of the UN General Assembly session which opened on Sept 15 and will continue until Sept 30.”

The prime minister added that New Delhi wanted to take the global spotlight off its reign of terror in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOKJ), which has been under a draconian lockdown for more than a year now.

Indian media has been spewing venom against Pakistan since Sharif’s rant against state institutions, he said. An international lobby has been active against Pakistan’s state institutions, he added.

Nawaz, who was allowed to fly to London for treatment late last year, broke his long silence a day before and claimed that the opposition was up not against Prime Minister Imran Khan but against those who had brought him into power in the 2018 elections.

Participating in the PPP-hosted multiparty conference from London via video link on Sunday, the PML-N supreme leader pledged that his party would endorse whatever course of action the grand huddle decided.
