DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Accused to hatching conspiracies against the state, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan lashed out at political opponents and claimed that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz is attacking institutions and weakening democratic institutions.
While addressing a press conference on Tuesday, the PTI chief said that “Jews don’t need to indulge in conspiracies against Pakistan as long as people like Nawaz Sharif and Fazl-ur-Rehman are present.”
“If the thieves keep getting protection, our only other democratic option is to come out on the streets,” he remarked.
Speaking about the issue surrounding the appointment of new National Accountability Bureau chairman, he said that “we were not consulted over the issue”.
He further said that “we will evaluate the performance of new chairman Justice (R) Javed Iqbal. The nation is hoping for accountability.”
If there is ‘VIP accountability’, then what message will it give to the prisoners, he asked.
He also claimed that Sharif family has to account for about Rs300 billion, adding that Nawaz’s daughter Maryam Nawaz has time and again lied regarding their properties.
“All proofs submitted by the Sharif family have been fake. From their trust deed to the Qatari letter all were fake,” he claimed.
The prime minister is trying to save a disqualified and corrupt man, he remarked.
"In the future, DG accountability in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will be selected by the Peshawar High Court," he added.
Earlier in the day, while addressing a ceremony in Dera Ismail Khan, Imran said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has wealth worth Rs300 billion out of Pakistan--which is why he was disqualified.
“You ask why you were disqualified. I will tell you why. You have more than 300 billion saved outside the country,” Imran said while addressing a ceremony here.
He lashed out at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders for disrespecting the Supreme Court’s “unanimous decision” against party chief Nawaz.
Narrating how only the poor suffer under the law, Imran said that he did not come across one “major personality” when he was in jail for eight days, but realised the whole Parliament was filled with “robbers” once when he was attending a session.
Imran on Sunday while addressing a rally in Buner said that his party will be on Islamabad's roads in case Nawaz Sharif attempts to wriggle out of his present situation by strongarming state institutions.
Addressing a rally in Buner, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Imran remarked, "If Nawaz is punished for money laundering, all his wealth will be brought back to Pakistan".
He claimed Nawaz and "his ministers" are bashing the army and Supreme Court to save the Sharif family's corruption.
