It was first the Sharif brothers who blamed Zardari for being corrupt then it was Zardari with his son accusing the Sharifs of corruption and now they both are joining hands to save each other,” she said

Kanwal said Prime Minister Imran Khan had no personal enmity against the opposition parties' leadership and that he only wishes that the plundered national wealth should be recovered from the looters.

"Our manifesto is to eradicate corruption, bring back the looted money and provide justice to people without any prejudice and discrimination", she said.

The National Accountability Bureau and courts are independent institution and PTI led government believes in the independent working of the institutions, she added.
