SIALKOT: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday said that he backed the sit-in organised by Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), adding that 14 members of PAT were martyred two years ago but justice has yet not been served so far.
Addressing the media persons, Imran Khan said that the people are angry over Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). He further stated that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should relinquish his post until investigation into Panama leaks is completed. He said that any other member of PML-N can serve as PM until the investigation is carried out.
Imran accused Nawaz Sharif and his family of being involved in money laundering. He said that rigging was proved in the constituency of Defence Minister Khawaja Asif whereas 54,000 bogus votes were cast in his own constituency which has not been investigated as yet. He said that government was giving rise to doubts by prolonging investigation into Panama leaks.
Imran said that the amount of funds raised during an iftar party held at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (SKMCH) was the highest during the 21 year history of the hospital. He criticised Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by stating that there was not even a single hospital in the country where the PM could have been treated for heart ailment.
