Won't let Nawaz Sharif special treatment in Jail: Imran Khan in US

Nawaz Sheriff, Imran Khan

Washington : Claiming that Nawaz Sharif eats home-made food in his air-conditioned jail with television in it, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan here on Sunday said that he will ensure the "criminal" does not receive such treatment.

"Nawaz Sharif wants food from home in jail, he wants air conditioning in jail. But in a country where half the population has no air conditioning or tv, what kind of punishment would this be?," said Khan in a 50-minute speech televised by Samaa TV.

"I am going to go back and make sure there is no air conditioning or no tv for Nawaz Sharif who is a criminal. I know (PML-N leader) Maryam Bibi will make some noise, but I say to her, return the money. It's as simple as that," he added.

The 69-year-old former Prime Minister was convicted in the Al Azizia Steel Mills case and sentenced to seven years in jail. He is currently serving the sentence in Lahore's Kot Lakhpat jail.

Khan made these remarks while addressing the Pakistani diaspora during 'Jalsa' in Capital One Arena stadium, which was attended by 30,000 Pakistanis, despite the stadium capacity of 20,000. ANI
