Islamabad, July 12(ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that the latest resolution against the media by the Punjab Assembly is not the first time that the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) has spearheaded an assault on the media.

"Nawaz Sharif has a long history of confrontation with state institutions characterised by episodes as shameful as the attack on the Supreme Court. His whole political career is marked by flagrant duplicity and unabashed self-service," The Daily Times quoted Imran, as saying.

He also claimed that Nawaz had drained off his ill-amassed wealth and assets abroad, and "has sold his soul to the US".

Imran further said that the PML-N chief had sabotaged the principled stand taken by the All-Parties Democratic Alliance by backing off on his promise to boycott the 2008 elections.

"Before the elections 2008, he went to the extent of taking oath from all his party candidates for the restoration and independence of the judiciary, only to sell the glorious movement in March 2009 by calling off the long march at Gujranwala after reaching an understanding with the guardians of the Dogar court," he added.
