Six Pakistani Politicians Under Threat from Terrorists.

Sharif is due to return to Pakistan on Friday to be arrested in a move that he hopes will boost his PML-N party ahead of polls, but Khan dismissed the move as futile.

Program with Asif Ali Zardari he said "Yes we are somoned but that doesn't mean we have to appear personally, our lawyer will appear on our behalf". Khan also stressed upon the independent candidates to withdraw their papers in favor of PTI candidates.

Though the former BBC journalist insists that the book "is all about my life.the struggles and how I overcame it", the fact that it was released weeks before the general election slated for July 25 has led to speculation that it was aimed at derailing her former husband's political career.

"What Pakistan has to do is follow China's example where they lift people out of poverty", Khan said in the interview in a private jet after a long night of campaigning in Punjab province.

The accusations echo those made by former prime minister Sharif, who was convicted of corruption last week. He is contesting the elections on Allah-o-Akbar Tehreek party ticket.

Terming her decision to marry the PTI chairman a "huge mistake", she said that she also found it hard to forgive herself.


The PTI chief criticised Maulana Fazlur Rehman for siding with every ruling party saying the JUI-F leader had to cling to power for own survival.

"You know she isn't the only one I have". It was even hard for me to forgive myself for such a huge mistake.

A direct descendant of one of the missionaries who brought Islam to the region more than 700 years ago, Shahabuddin said his hereditary role still "still carries weight with voters".

That is unlikely to prevent him retaining his seat in parliament this month, thanks to loyalty to a family name that has held sway over politics in this part of central Pakistan for generations.

Bakhtyar, who says he was not coerced and was never approached by the military's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, concedes his switch from PML-N to PTI was not based on ideology.

Adding the more fierce competition, Reham claims that Imran has a severe drug problem.

"Since PTI is the new party on the horizon, from Khyber to Karachi, that was our best bet", Bakhtyar said.
