The audience had a fit of laughter amid his intense speech when he mocked Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari for his startling comments on the rain in Karachi, a couple of months ago. His short clip from the speech circulated on social media.
PM Khan said Bilawal Bhutto’s baffling explanation of ‘jab barish hoti hai to pani ata hai’ (water pours when it rains) has given a shock to the scientists around the world.
Acclaimed scientist Einstein would have rolled over in his grave when Bilawal further explained, ‘jab zyada barish hota hai to zyada pani ata hai’ (More water comes when it rains more), Khan said further.
Imran Khan, in his one-time response to Bilawal Bhutto’s continuous derision, said that unlike Bilawal Bhutto he has not inherited a political party but has struggled for success for 22 years.
PM Khan, however, reiterated that he will not spare the absconders who looted the money of Pakistan. He said he showed clemency to ailing Nawaz Sharif notwithstanding substantial disapproval from his cabinet members.

Imran Khan even hit out at Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, who is leading anti-government demonstrations since the end of October. He castigated Maulana Fazl, adding that his politics is based on lucre and recalled his popular phrase, ‘Maulana Diesel‘.
He warned his opponents that nothing can break his resolve against the corrupt mafia. Khan said that he knows how to rise after a downfall.
Meanwhile, Bilawal Bhutto retorted to PM Khan’s striking remarks. He said that he is neither a liberal nor a hypocrite. Adding that Imran Khan doesn’t have a distinct identity and that his politics for the past 22 years is based on ‘selection‘.
Imran Khan’s speech on Monday followed his two-day rest from public affairs. Imran Khan has been confronting vicious slandering campaigns from his opponents in the past few months.
Na liberal hoon, Na corrupt hoon aur Na hi munafiq. Main taraki-pasand aur nazriyati hoon. Aik saal say siyasat main hoon. Tum 70 saal kay burhay ho, 20 saal say selected siyasat kartay aa rahay ho. Agar Imran ki koi pehchaan hai – tau woh U-turn hai, munafiqat hai, katputli hai.
