New Delhi, Oct 31: As an internal political turmoil is brewing in Pakistan for some time now, opposition leader and chairperson of Pakistan Tahreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, suspects the role of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the affairs of the country.
According to reports, the former cricketer on Sunday accused Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of pursuing his Indian counterpart Modi's interests in Pakistan.
In fact, recently the Pakistani government has cracked down on the cricketer-turned-politician's supporters with police arresting over 100 of them.
"When Nawaz Sharif went to London for whatever kind of surgery, he on the hospital bed first telephoned Modi instead of his mother or children," Imran told a press conference outside his Bani Gala residence in Islamabad.
The chairperson of PTI was referring to Sharif's open heart surgery at a London hospital in May.
"Nawaz is following Modi's 'interests' in Pakistan. Nawaz is behind the security leaks story which defamed the armed forces. Actually his and Modi's agenda is same," the Pakistan Tahreek-i-Insaf chief said.
Khan asserted that "everybody knows" that sacked Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid cannot leak sensitive information to the media on his own.
Sharif on Saturday sacked Rashid over the recent "leaked" media report about a rift between the civilian and military leaderships on support to militancy.
"Rashid is a darbari (courtier) and he did what Nawaz told him to do so," Imran said.
