“Time for nation to stop glorifying money launderers who have damaged our nation & impoverished our people & now seeking refuge behind “democracy”. No protocol should be extended to them. Where are plunderers of public wealth given such special treatment? Time to treat them as criminals,” he tweeted.

The tweet comes after the prime minister’s late night address to the nation. Prime Minister Khan slammed leaderships of the PPP and the PML-N, claiming that they were responsible for the economic mess that the country was in.

“I want to make it clear to the nation–these people should not try to blackmail me or this government. Giving up governance is a very small price–I will hold them accountable even if I have to sacrifice my life,” said Prime Minister Khan during his address.
