Lahore, Oct 24 : Pakistan Muslim League (Q) leader and Chief Minister of Punjab province, Pervaiz Elahi has termed former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto as Asia's most corrupt politician.
"Benazir is Asia's most corrupt politician and corruption cases against her are in almost every court in Europe," Elahi said at a public gathering in Chakwal, where he inaugurated a gas supply project on Tuesday.
Stating that Benazir's intention behind her homecoming is to get all the cases against her withdrawn, the PML-Q leader said that people of Pakistan would give a verdict against her through their vote.
Corruption cases against Bhutto would remain "in the people's court," Elahi said.
"Both Benazir and Nawaz Sharif had come to power twice, but they did nothing for Pakistan, rather had taken the country to the brink of bankruptcy," the Daily Times quoted Elahi, as saying.
Holding Benazir's party, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) responsible for the rise of Taliban, Elahi said, "If the PPP had not favoured Talibanisation during its government, the situation in Pakistan had been different today."
