PTI is the second largest political party of the country: Imran Khan
10 May, 2016
PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday lashed out at Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif once against for not answering the questions relating to the Panama leaks.
Addressing a public gathering in Peshawar, Khan said, “the Iceland prime minister resigned on moral grounds after his name appeared on the list of people who owned offshore companies. Here, Sharif is touring the country,” he said.
He said the PTI was the second largest political party of the country and it was its duty to ask the prime minister to explain how his children acquired so much money. He said that Prime Minister Sharif controlled the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Federal Board of Revenue (FBR), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and other institutions.
During his address, the PTI chairman lambasted Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl President Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman. He said that he would announce a rally in Bannu on Wednesday.
Khan said that he was ashamed of hearing what happened to a girl in Abbottabad, but he was proud of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police officials who arrested all the killers. He said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police arrested the killers of Sardar Soran Singh within 24 hours of his murder.
He said that a corrupt leader would undermine a country and destabilise its institutions. He said that a minister was held accountable for his actions for the first time in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government was bringing a new law for accountability and asked the prime minister to follow the suit. He said that Pakistan had been divided into two groups — one group consisted of people demanding accountability and the other group consisted of corrupt leaders hiding their assets.
Khan challenged his opponents to name a single person who had been appointed to any office on someone’s recommendation. He further added , "How can the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) bring other corrupt leaders to book when the man leading the country is corrupt himself," said Imran.
