ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday stated that a reference regarding the disqualification of the Prime Minster was filed in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) by PTI.
Khan while addressing the media said that ECP is biased in favor of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), adding that he did not expect justice from the institution. He said that if justice was not provided by ECP, the party shall head to the Supreme Court (SC). He added that the intra-party elections were delayed in order to organize PTI to protest against the Panama Leaks issue.
He stated that process of accountability should begin from Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif and should then be carried out against other leaders. He said that the government seemed unwilling to agree upon the Terms of References (TORs) catering the investigation of the Panama Leaks issue proposed by the Opposition.
the PTI Chairman said that it has been mentioned in the assets of the Prime Minster that his daughter, Maryam Nawaz, is under his guardianship. He enquired that how could Maryam, who is dependent on her father, own offshore companies.
He stated that PM should resign over hiding his assets. He said that if PML-N believed in democracy, the party would have made the Prime Minister to resign and appoint another PM in his place until the Panama Leaks issue gets investigated.
Khan said that those individuals who were criticizing the funds allocated to the madaris had no awareness regarding the dynamics of the society. "Should we forget the 22 thousand students who are studying in the madaris?," Khan enquired. He said that Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) leader Maulana Samiul Haq took part with him in the polio campaign.
The PTI Chairman said that the United Kingdom (UK) Prime Minister David Cameron resigned after the country’s people decided not to remain a part of the European Union (EU) through a referendum despite the fact that his party members and even his political rivals advised him against it. He stated that Cameron resigned as he led the country on the basis of moral strength.
During his conversation with the media, Khan also said that he was deeply saddened over the murder of qawwali singer Amjad Sabri.
