Imran urges Zardari to act against Sharifs
22 October, 2012
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Sunday that after the decision of Supreme Court (SC) in Asghar Khan case, the president has the "opportunity to take strict action against the Sharif brothers who had taken money to establish IJI".
"In light of SC's verdict, neutral investigation should be launched against those who had taken money from secret agencies so that malign, corrupted elements could be eliminated," Imran said in a statement.
The PTI chief said that it has been proved that money was given to establish IJI and it is also "clear that so-called politicians had received the amount".
He said that the government should implement decision of the SC "at once" and disqualify those people who had received money.
"Today, corruption is common in all over the country. Punjab has become defaulter because of corruption and worst performance of its leaders," Imran said.
"Zardari should take strict action against these people so that no body could dare to change the decision of public in the future," he said. "Corrupt Sharif brothers should not only be disqualified, they should also be held accountable," the PTI chief said.
'Q' demands commission to implement verdict
Deputy Prime Minister and PML-Q leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi said on Sunday that a commission should be formed to implement Supreme Court's (SC) verdict in the Asghar Khan case.
Addressing a public gathering, he said that after the SC's verdict "the PML-N should conduct a survey to ascertain standing of its leadership".
He said the PML-N government in Punjab was cashing in on development projects launched by the PML-Q government, adding, "The PML-Q believes in service and not in false promises."
The deputy prime minister said that "neither distribution of laptops can spread education nor can Daanish schools produce wisdom".
He said the PML-N had no interest in developing the education sector and was only "wasting Punjab resources in a barricaded bus service project".
He said that the people of Sialkot would take revenge from the PML-N for ending PML-Q's projects of building a motorway, cadet college, universities and a cardiology centre in the area.
"The PML-Q-led government had started various development projects in Sialkot but Shahbaz Sharif scrapped those schemes," he said.
The deputy prime minister said that people were fed up with the rule of Sharif brothers.
