ISLAMABAD -UNS– Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has created another controversy as he was filmed telling aides the foreign players who took part in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final were “phateechar” (roughly, low-class ).
PTI chief said he does not even know the names of those foreign players who played the final match. He said these players were brought from Africa and they would have come to play in any case for money.
Imran Khan added that the idea was to bring big players to Pakistan but all of them refused to come here.
After this statement, Imran Khan came under fire and is facing a lot of criticism on social media as well as well as from political leaders and other public figures.
Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Maryam Aurangzeb has said that remarks about foreign players participating in the final of PSL are regrettable. Successful holding of final was a message to terrorists from fearless Pakistanis to brace challenge squarely, she added.
Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah also bashed Imran Khan and said he used the language of RAW, his words were humiliating and hurt the feelings of whole nation. Rana Sanaullah demanded Imran Khan to take his statement back and apologize from whole nation.
