LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has announced to approach the Supreme Court against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif regarding ‘stashed’ wealth of his children as revealed in the Panama Papers.
PTI chairman Imran Khan said his party would move the apex court and file a reference against the Prime Minister. The PTI is taking the next step with its accountability movement and already filed a reference with the National Assembly speaker and in the Election Commission of Pakistan.
“We will also urge the Supreme Court to investigate Nadra report on thumb impressions in the last elections.”
Speaking to media here, Khan also announced that PTI would flex its muscles at a massive rally on September 3 in Lahore. He vowed that PTI will arrive in Lahore with full force. He said he would also invite other parties to join his Lahore rally.

He took exception to PM and his government for spending 56% of development funds on Lahore alone and neglecting other parts of Punjab. “You see the post-rain situation in the province…this could have prevented if other districts and villages of Punjab were paid equal attention,” he slammed.
Regarding MQM chief, he said British government must probe the inciting speeches made by the MQM leader that stirred hornet’s nest in Pakistan. He said that the speeches were even more derogatory and hateful than Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
