Defence Minister Khawaja Asif attacked Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan, saying the opposition party is pleading with “someone else” for help following the retirement of former army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa.

In a jab at Mr. Khan, the senior leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) reportedly stated, “Hardly anyone has licked as many shoes as the PTI founder,” according to a report from Geo News.

Khwaja Asif, speaking before the National Assembly, referenced the words of Aun Chaudhry, the head of the Istehkam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP). He claimed that Imran Khan was hidden in a car trunk and driven to General (retd) Amjad Awan’s residence.

Asif further claimed that the jailed PTI founder made every kind of desperate request to seek relief.

“After Bajwa sahib, they [PTI] are now trying to hold the feet of someone else. Hardly anyone has ’licked’ as many shoes as the PTI founder,” Geo News quoted the federal minister as saying.

These remarks come in response to PTI Secretary-General Omar Ayub Khan’s address in the lower house of Parliament wherein he slammed the federal government for presenting a budget against the interests of the nation and the country.

“This budget was made by an economic hitman,” said Ayub, who is also the Opposition Leader in the National Assembly.
