PM touring Pakistan to escape Panama questions: Imran Khan.


PESHAWAR: Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Monday called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to respond to the allegations against him like the way David Cameron did in the wake of Panama Papers disclosures.


Speaking at a mammoth rally in Peshawar, Khan made a special reference to federal minister Akram Khan Durrani saying that the minister claimed to topple the PTI-led government in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and questioned him how can he oust the provincial government with majority seats in the province.

It is only possible that Durrani bribe masses, that too having come from a so-called religious party (JUI-F), he slammed.

The PTI chief shamed Durrani for doing politics in the name of Islam and then offering bribes to people, but urged him to offer money to PTI lawmakers in KP which will in return cleanse the party.

Taking exception to Maulana Fazlur Rahman, Imran said, “The JUI-F chief calls me an agent of Jews, I ask him that the Jews need not to hatch conspiracies in Pakistan in the presence of Fazl.”

“He was part of every government in the past and God forbid if a Jew becomes Pakistan’s premier, the JUI-F chief will also join his cabinet furnishing justifications for it,” the skipper blasted.

Taking a jab at the prime minister, he said, “Mian sahib you can’t see a reformed Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for you are searching for it at the wrong place”, adding, “The premier has been taking control of all institutions and the entire opposition is with him except for me, but then surfaced Panama Papers leaks naming his family with offshore assets.”

He said: Nawaz Sharif should have answered like David Cameron did, but he started touring the country instead. The premier lacked the moral courage to step down like Iceland’s prime minister.

He described the prime minister as ‘master of saving corruption’, asking, “Mian Sahib do not tour the country, answer the queries.”

The PTI chairman reiterated that Sharif installed Najam Sethi as chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for he had helped him rig the elections.

He slammed that the rulers impose heavy taxes on petrol, diesel, electricity and others and then take this wealth abroad, while the public is further burdened with massive foreign loans.
