ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said the PML-N should clarify who is allegedly conspiring against them and asked whether it was the judiciary or the army.
Khan said threats to the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) – investigating the foreign assets of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family- by the leaders from PML-N were threats to the Supreme Court.
Khan added that the prime minister lied in the assembly during his briefing to the house on his financial assets.
He alleged that the PML-N tried to buy the JIT and started attacking them when the offer was refused.
The PTI chairman said the Sharif family has to give answers for two simple questions – who is the owner of the properties and how was the money taken out of Pakistan.
Imran said that those who claim to be protecting democracy are in fact destroying national institutions to protect their loot, adding that they have not yet shown a money trail.
Taking further jibe at the government, he said that the PML-N leaders have coined a new term, ‘judicial coup’.
‘Nation stands with Supreme Court’
“I am challenging them, the entire nation is standing with the Supreme Court. The nation is waiting for my one call.”
He added that PTI has nothing to do with the JIT summons of Maryam Nawaz Sharif.
Referring to an allegation against him, Imran said the foreign funding case against him is ‘politically motivated’.
Criticising the incumbent leadership further, Khan said if the Qatari prince can come to Pakistan to buy Port Qasim and to hunt Houbara Bustard, then why cant he come to the country to appear before the JIT.
“Even if he doesn’t appear before JIT he can send the banking transactions.”
