‘I met a US ambassador at your home; was that treacherous?’ Aleem asks PM Imran


LAHORE: PTI’s disgruntled member of Punjab Assembly Aleem Khan on Monday asked Prime Minister Imran Khan whether it was treacherous that he “met a US ambassador” at the premier’s residence. The disgruntled PTI leader mentioned the incident after Prime Minister Imran Khan revealed that the US official who sent the “threat letter” was Assistant Secretary of State for the South and Central Asian Affairs Donald Lu. Aleem, who is a former senior provincial minister, lashed out at the former government and PTI leader for calling him a “traitor” and said it was “unfortunate” that they were resorting to maligning him. “I have become a traitor, tell Cheema and Salik they are also traitors, they have taken the money. I have had a very difficult time from 2010 to 2018 (when PML-N was in power),” he said. Moving on, the ex-senior minister criticised the prime minister and asked him why he did not like anyone from among the 183 MPAs in Punjab. “You nominated the person [as the chief minister] whom you used to call the biggest dacoit in Punjab,” he said while referring to CM hopeful Chauhdry Pervaiz Elahi. Berating the prime minister, Aleem said he had cases made against disgruntled PTI leader Jahangir Tareen. “Have you no shame? You sent your close aides to jail. We informed you about every corrupt practice Buzdar was involved in. But [it seems] the ones standing with you are patriots, others are traitors.” The former minister said Farah Bibi — a close aide of PM Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi — has left for Dubai and she was involved in taking “a lot of bribes”.Farah was involved in transfers and postings of bureaucrats in Punjab, but now she and her husband have “absconded” to Dubai.
