Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah has said that the convictions against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan before the elections damaged the ruling party PML-N.

He stated that either of the sentences awarded to Khan would not “sustain” before an honest judge.

“The cases in which the PTI founder was sentenced significantly damaged us [PML-N] in the elections due to the victim card used by the PTI. The manner in which the case proceedings were held and the sentences were awarded, they would not sustain before a judge who upholds principles of justice,” Sanaullah said while speaking to Kamran Shahid on Dunya News.

Sanaullah even said that either the judge would remand back the case or could even exonerate Mr Khan and further said that his party would have no objection if he got a bail.

Former interior minister Sanaullah was also of the opinion that PTI took advantage of its victim card and also pushed the country into a crisis – which PML-N government now has to look after.
