He said the attempt made by the cohorts of Nawaz Sharif had to divert attention of the public from corruption and tax evasion.


The main road leading to the house of Imran Khan in Bani Gala was in a state of disrepair. However, instead of placing the blame on PML-N for the negligence, Khan took the responsibility to reconstruct it.

The 600-foot-long road which cost 800,000 rupees has been reconstructed on the personal expenses on Imran Khan who made the payments to the contractor personally.

The MNA from the area Tariq Fazal Chaudhry belongs to the PML-N. Local residents said that the road was in a state of disrepair for a long time which caused huge inconvenience to them.  They thanked Imran Khan for the gesture which would benefit them as well.
