LAHORE - State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali has accused PTI and the PAT of exploiting the poor by way of putting them in fruitless activity.

In a statement here on Saturday he termed dharna a ‘show of jugglers on roads’ of the federal capital. He said PTI and the PAT leaders speak high for the poor but regrettable they are not ready to do anything for the flood-hit people. He said these leaders instead of helping the poor, are staging dance show on every night which shows how much they feel for laypersons.

He said Imran Khan and Dr Tahirul Qadri do not know to serve the people but to exploit them for their personal interests. The Minister said Imran Khan blames others for paying little tax but he himself pays on Rs1.5lakh tax while living in a palace in Banni Gala. He further blames PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi for giving ticket to his favourite to contest election on the vacant seat of Javed Hashmi in Multan.
