Islamabad, ANI. Issuing a strange statement, former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan said that it would have been better to drop an atomic bomb than handing over power to thieves. According to The News International, Khan made the remarks while interacting with reporters at his Banigala residence on Friday.

The president of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf also said that he was shocked by the imposition of thieves on the country. It would have been better to drop a nuclear bomb on the country than to hand over the helm to these people. According to The News International, Khan said that powerful people who used to tell him stories of corruption of past rulers have started advising him to focus on the performance of his government rather than allegations of corruption against others.

He further said that thieves who came to power destroyed every institution and judicial system, now ask which government official will investigate the cases of these criminals. Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that Imran Khan is “poisoning” the minds of the people of Pakistan by targeting state institutions with his speeches.

During the first regular session of the National Assembly since the formation of the new government, Shehbaz Sharif said the nation was divided as he was repeatedly called by Imran Khan (the then opposition and now government) thieves and dacoits. PTI president Imran Khan had warned Shehbaz Sharif’s government that no force could stop him from entering the federal capital during the long march on May 20.

He warned the federal government led by the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) that more than two million people would reach Islamabad to achieve real independence and protest against the imported government. Imran Khan told the Shahbaz Sharif-led government that no matter how many containers have been kept to create obstacles, two million people will come to Islamabad.

Imran Khan said that our opponents say that if the temperature is high then people will not come out. Keep as many containers as you want, but 20 lakh people will come to Islamabad. The former prime minister told his supporters that the current government was “afraid” of his passion and said that 11 parties had gathered to remove him from power.
