Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday said that he is ready to forgive the dissident MNAs of the PTI given that they rejoin the party. Addressing a jalsa in the Dargai tehsil of the Malakand district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the premier told about two dozen disgruntled MNA’s of the PTI — who had “sought refuge” at the Sindh House out of the fear of the government ahead of the no-confidence motion against the premier — that they have “committed a mistake by accepting a bribe from the Opposition.”
“A leader is like a father figure to you,” the premier said. “Now, the nation has become exceedingly aware of politics because of social media, so even a child in the country knows that when a party member becomes a turncoat, there is money involved.” He reiterated that the whole nation would assume that the MNAs have “sold their conscience by voting in favour of thieves.”
“You will not be able to attend public gatherings and no one would marry your children when they’d grow up,” he warned his MNAs.
“We all make mistakes. Allah also forgives his slaves. I am just like a father figure to you all. But for God’s sake, don’t make such a big mistake [by joining hands with the corrupt Opposition]. Think about your children’s future.”
