ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif and party President Shehbaz Sharif have strongly criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan for writing a letter to the International Monetary Fund, calling it treason and citing it as proof of PTI’s animosity and hostility towards the country.

Talking to the media following the swearing-in ceremony at the Parliament House, former prime minister Nawaz, without naming Imran Khan, said that writing such letter was his way, adding that no other political party could do so.

Shehbaz Sharif said that it was a deliberate attempt to undermine the economy of Pakistan and show disregard to possible hardship caused by it for the people of Pakistan. Shehbaz called out the PTI for its hypocrisy and double standards. He said on the one hand they cry foul over the seats lost in the general elections and, on the other hand, they celebrate the seats won by them. The only thing common in both these actions was selfish vested interest at the cost of possible damage to Pakistan internally and internationally. This, he said, exposed the PTI founder’s disregard to the interest of the country and its people.

He emphasized that this letter comes as another detrimental blow to the nation, especially following the recent cipher fiasco, at a time when the country was facing an economic crisis. Shehbaz further expressed concerns regarding the potential repercussions of PTI’s actions.

The PM nominee emphasised that only those with ulterior motives against the country would resort to such unpatriotic measures. He condemned PTI’s brutal agenda of compromising the people of Pakistan for its petty personal gains. He labeled the act of writing to the IMF as highly condemnable and tantamount to treason.

Shehbaz warned that PTI’s leadership has recklessly crossed all boundaries of hostility against the nation. He stressed that such shortsighted actions only aim to exacerbate poverty and deepen the country’s crises.

He urged the PTI leadership to reconsider their approach and prioritise the well-being and prosperity of the nation. He emphasised the need for a constructive role in steering Pakistan towards progress and stability.
