While addressing PTI rally in Lodhran, Khan claimed that son of disqualified premier Nawaz Sharif resides in a house worth Rs 600crore and that ministers belonging to ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are corrupt.
He asserted that foreign minister Khawaja Asif holds a resident permit of Dubai and that he withdraws salary worth Rs 16lac from a Dubai-based entity in addition to service as Pakistani minister.
PTI chief reiterated that the top court had granted time to Nawaz Sharif to file his defence in corrution probe but he did not and filed a letter of a Qatari prince instead as money trail which was demanded of him.

He further said that accountability courts have granted time according to the rules to Sharif family to defend their case but the ousted premier would not be able to.
