ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said he hopes the powerful rulers will be convicted of corruption and money laundering in the Panamagate case.

"This would be for the first time that a powerful person in Pakistan is convicted of corruption and money laundering," Imran said while addressing a gathering in Islamabad on Friday. PTI chairman said most people enter politics to make money, but he did so to change the system. "I intended to become PM to bring stability in the institutions and ensure justified distribution of resources in the country," he said. Responding to a question, Imran claimed that his party had always remained within the limits of the Constitution. "We firstly took to streets to demand a probe into the rigging in 2013 elections and then to demand an inquiry of the offshore wealth as exposed by Panama Papers."

When asked about a question relating with the current state of cricket in the country, Imran laughingly said that he was focused more on the 'Panama pitch' at the moment. "Unfortunately, in the past, our judicial system has always sided with the powerful people," Imran said, adding, "This time it will be a defining moment in the history of the country." He reiterated his hope that the verdict of the case will be out this week. On February 23, the Supreme Court reserved its verdict in the ongoing Panamagate case. Imran criticised the government for lying about drone attacks, saying the government green-signaled the airstrikes against its own people. "Musharraf's government was responsible for allowing these drone attacks," he said.
