MULTAN: Makhdoom Javed Hashmi said on Sunday that he respected senior Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi despite of the statement the former made against him during the PTI rally held in Karachi on Sunday.

Qureshi had called Hashmi a 'tainted person' (Daaghi) during his speech delivered to the participants of the PTI rally held in Karachi today.

He further said that it was pertinent to mention that Qureshi used to secretly visit the US Consulate and added that the allegations levelled by Qureshi against him were baseless.

Hashmi also said his point of view differed from that of PTI Chairman Imran Khan and that he had informed Imran Khan that Qureshi would never tender his resignation in the National Assembly.

Talking about Qureshi's accusation of his collusion with the Sharif brothers, he said that Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif did have the moral courage to contact him.

Giving financial details of the PTI sit-in being held in Islamabad, Hashmi said that Rs 300 million had been spent by the time he exited the party which included DJ Butt's bill of Rs 45 million.

He further claimed that expenditures of more that One billion rupees had been incurred on the anti-government protests so far.

Talking about the London meeting between PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Teherek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri, Hashmi said that the meeting had also been attended by Chaudhry Sarwar who later became Governor Punjab.

Hashmi also said that some one had told him about Sarwar's presence and that he could not verify the information.
