BIRMINGHAM: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan stated on Sunday that the leaders are doing everything they can to hide their corruption and that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) organised a protest outside Jemima Khan’s mother’s residence in order to silence him over the Panama Leaks issue.
While addressing a public meeting of PTI in Birmingham, Khan said that the nations who emphasised on justice and equity have become mighty whereas those nations who lack an ideology ultimately diminish. He added that we must not forget that Pakistan was the name of a wonderful dream.
Referring to the Panama Leaks, Khan stated that the country got ruined because of those who invested in heavy sums in the formation of companies in Panama. He said that justice refers to the idea that everyone should be answerable to the law and not that the Prime Minister (PM) of a country can avoid accountability whilst not paying his taxes.
PTI chief said that the leadership of the country during democratic rule is there because of its moral authority, he said that PM Nawaz Sharif is attacking others instead of giving answers in regards to the Panama Leaks. “I stated that Nawaz Sharif is involved in money laundering. As a reply, the PML-N workers are protesting outside Jemima’s house”, he said.
He further added that PM Nawaz must have provided clarification in the Parliament just like UK Prime Minister David Cameron did in his country. He said that instead of giving clarifications, the biggest charity institution of the country was made subject to criticism. “If Shaukat Khanum (Memorial Cancer Hospital) did anything wrong then why is it being highlighted after the Panama Leaks onset?” Khan inquired, adding that if the rulers had any shame they would not have made such a move.
He said that overseas Pakistanis are of utmost significance for the country, as they send their earnings back home upon which the country is running. He also said that he will do his very best to ensure that overseas Pakistanis get the right to vote and that the individuals with dual citizenship must also get opportunities in the country.
