Powerful can get away with anything, jails are only for poor: PM

Powerful can get away with anything, jails are only for poor: PM
December 27, 2020

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said that the powerful can get away with anything and the jails are only for the poor.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, the prime minister also said, "If we don't punish such people, what kind of example are we setting for our children? That the powerful can get away with anything and the jails are only for the poor?"

The prime minister said: “I am aware of the needs of the people, but when the ‘corrupt’ rule the country, the entire system under which people’s needs should be serviced is destroyed.”

“The government has ‘very little’ left to spend on the people due to half of its collections being used for debt repayment in the first year and in the second, even more than that due to accrued interest,” he said.

A day earlier, the premier had severely criticised opposition parties for what he termed their “double standards” and self-serving politics. Addressing a ceremony after laying the foundation stone of different projects including the university in Chakwal’s Balkassar, 500-bed hospital, law college, and Ring Road, he said those who are claiming to be ‘champions of the democracy’ are asking to overthrow an elected government.
