Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf takes helicopter route to distribute pamphlets listing reasons for Nawaz Sharif's ouster

Rawalpindi: Continuing its tirade against deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the opposition Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday distributed pamphlets listing reasons for his ouster.


The PTI party said it had prepared a response to Sharif's repeated questioning of why he was disqualified by the Supreme Court.

"We will tell you why you were disqualified," Dawn.com quoted the pamphlets, which were distributed from a private helicopter at Liaquat Bagh and nearby areas ahead of the gathering here, as saying.

The pamphlets listed 10 reasons, including money laundering, looting taxpayers' money and lying to Parliament and public about Panama leaks, for Sharif's ouster from public office.

Leaders of the Imran Khan-led party had earlier submitted an application to the district administration seeking permission to drop pamphlets in the city from a helicopter.

The same reasons are also expected to be announced at the gathering on Sunday at Liaquat Bagh which is being held by PTI and the Awami Muslim League.

PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry earlier claimed that Sharif had attempted to mislead the public by distributing copies of his 'iqamah' during his homecoming rally.


"We knew Nawaz Sharif would not be able to understand the [Supreme Court] ruling in English," the report quoted Chaudhry as saying.

"We gave him time to get help from someone who could explain the verdict to him, but in the end we have no choice but to tell him the reasons behind his disqualification ourselves."

The former prime minister had in nearly all of his speeches that he delivered on his way to Lahore from Islamabad during his four-day GT Road rallies demanded that he be told the reason for his disqualification.
