Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan on Tuesday called Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif a “security risk” for the country as he was only interested in saving himself from the accountability in the wake of the Panama Papers leaks.

“His only aim is to save himself from the repercussions of the revelations regarding his corruption in Panama leaks,” he said and demanded the government to highlight the names of those officials who were involved in leaking the crucial information regarding a high-level security meeting.

Khan, who is the chairman of Tehreek-e-Insaf, also claimed that India was trying to “implode” Pakistan and sabotage moves against corruption. “A new doctrine has originated in India which aims to implode Pakistan because they have failed to defeat us militarily,” Imran told reporters outside his residence before leaving for Quetta, where ISIS militants attacked a police training centre.

“…to make Pakistan descend into chaos without any reforms,” he said, adding that India did not want an inside political reform movement to succeed. “Whenever we plan to launch a reform movement against corruption in the country such terror attacks happen,” he added.

He went on to add that “when Balochistan Chief Minister is saying that India was involved in sabotaging law and order in the province then why does our prime minister not raise his voice on the issue on global forums”.
