To a question about quashment of cases he said PTI is not in power therefore, all are wrong. If they hold power then every thing is right. They are saying we are getting our cases quashed. Cases were registered against us as political victimization. Why should we not get quash cases against us.
The cases are going to be quashed in all over the world against our leadership. Daily Mail published fabricated news at the behest of Shahzad Akbar. Now they have regretted over false news.

About the cases against PTI leadership he said cases against Shahbaz Gill are not political cases. Whatever he said no one had said it correct. Azam Swati gave statements against two institutions. They are granted bail in their homes. Had we adopted the attitude like them then such case would not have been framed that they are acquitted after four days.
