PML-N did not file reference against me in 3 years: Imran Khan


ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Friday said reference had been filed against him in a bid to pressurize him to retreat from demand of investigation into Panamagate.

“Whatever actions Sharif brothers take against me, I am not going to back off from my demand of probe into Panama Leaks and will take the issue to its conclusive end,” he said while talking to media in Islamabad.

He questioned Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) filed reference against him now, but if they had evidence of any financial wrongdoing on his part why did they wait for three years?


“I have continuously offered myself for accountability unlike Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who continues to run away from it especially in the wake of Panama Leaks,” he said.

Imran Khan said filing reference now was clearly a PML-N blackmailing tactic and a vendetta against him for standing firm on exposing corruption and demanding accountability.

He said family of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had started business with one factory and they have built up more than 30 factories now after coming in to politics.

The PTI chief said corruption had badly marred the country. PTI wanted to raise voice against corruption as masses had become fed up of rulers this practice. Whoever pointed out corruption, was given share to silence him.

“The movement going to be launched on August 07 is against corruption. People will take to streets and looted money will be brought back from abroad,” he said.
