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”.

    The Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan has now become unfriendly to India after he realized that remaining in stani Politics and then come to power, the best way for it to show his hatred towards India.However he lost his goodwill in India.He is more dangerous than any other stani Political leaders.Actually he is destroying stan's so called Democracy with help of stan Army.Only Nawaz Sharif PM can bring peace with India.Except few pockets like Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which known as NWFP , his Party has no base in other states like Punjab, Sindh, Baluchistan which form 90% of stan.He is another Arvind Kejriwal in stan.

      Imran Khan hits the nail on the head. Modi and Nawaz Sharif do have a very close business link.

        Both are useless and it is like kettle calling the pot black. Both do not have the guts to call the Pak Army bluff and are slaves. stani people can enjoy the democracy only they raise and revolt against the Military junta. So all these imran,sherieff are all side actors. Jai Hind.

          What is Imran's experience in politics. ??? Nothing.lt;br/gt;He is only a cricketeer, and let him play with the bat and balls. He should be removed from politics. His wives have left him one by one. Now frustrated, he seems to have lost his mental balance. Ask him to speak on kashmir, and hear his reply. stan will kill itself not by Nawaz but by the hatred and growing terrorists, who are now targetting stan.

              Actually Sharif Imran and others , have nothing much to offer to stan State by way of peace, prosperity and Democracy in the true sense. Both have used the Pak Army card in upmanship/ brinkmanship. So far the Pak army hasn't risen to their bait.lt;br/gt;The sheer lack of calibre in their leaders is cause for concern , that's why no one is overly friendly except China and exceptions prove the rule.
