ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Imran Khan fired another broadside at former army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa, saying he was pulling strings of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Addressing a conference on rule of law, Khan said cases against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and other political leaders were matured but Gen Bajwa did not allow the NAB to take action.

Talking about speculations that assemblies would not be dissolved, he said elements behind these rumours should wait for his today’s (Saturday) speech. He reiterated that PMLQ would support his decision on dissolution of Punjab Assembly.

The PTI chief said the law about extension in army chief’s tenure should be abolished, adding that Gen Bajwa gave “NRO-2” to corrupt elements. The only solution to the current political tumult is fresh elections, he said.
