He asked why was the PM fearful if he had not done corruption? He said had he wanted to do corruption he would have become billionaire with the help of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.

“I want the country to make progress, Pakistan has respect in the world, people from across the world visit here and Pakistan become a loaner country not loan taking country,” he said.

The chairman PTI criticized Jamiat Ulama-e-Islam Chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman and said “diesel is to be filled in tanks not to be given vote”.

He said if the opposition played any trick in transparent investigation of Panama Leaks then PTI would stage sit-in till strict accountability of the prime minister and his family was started.

He cited example of west and said: “give me one name of western leader who has made a second company after coming into power.”

Imran Khan also said education was imperative in any society, specially religious education. He said he wanted to glorify Pakistan by making it great nation.
