Islamabad, July 7 (ANI) : Cricketer-turned politician, Imran Khan has charged the PPP-led government of being subservient to the United States, saying that government has rented out the country’s army to the US in exchange of 1.5 billion dollars.
“We have rented our military out to US in exchange of mere 1.5 billion dollars while US is spending sixty billion dollars on its army comprising 55,000 troops in Afghanistan,” The News quoted Khan, as saying.
Addressing party workers in Manshera, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief accused certain ‘elements’ in the government of forcing a war on people of the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) just for pocketing billions of dollars from the US.
Khan also warned the government that people in Swat and Malakand Divisions would take to streets in protest against the military offensive, if the military operation was not called off by July 31. (ANI)
