Sharif family maligning judiciary to save its corruption: Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday said that the Sharif family is making efforts to save its corruption by maligning the judiciary.
Addressing a joint press conference with Ramesh Kumar, a former Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker, who has joined PTI today, Imran said that the entire country is witnessing how the nation is standing with the judiciary. “Everyone has faith in the Supreme Court’s new leadership,” said the PTI chief.
Imran also demanded that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif disclose his sources of income and the means through which he had transferred the money abroad.
“Wajid Zia is being attacked because he can’t speak [against them],” Imran said, in a reference to the head of the Joint Investigation Team that probed the Panama Papers case.
Discussing the 2013 General Elections, he alleged that the returning officers, too, were involved in the rigging of the polls, and all political parties were in agreement over the rigging of the elections.
The PTI chief also accused political rival Pakistan Peoples Party of buying votes in the recently held Senate elections.
“Asif Zardari is mistaken that he can buy the Punjab chief minister post by spending money like he did during the Senate elections,” Zardari stressed.
Ramesh Kumar, while answering questions of journalists, said that he hoped Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan would also join the party, to which Imran added that the ‘party had just started.’
“Chaudhry Nisar is like my elder brother and he kept assuring me that things would change [in PML-N] so I had stayed [with the party] this long,”
The PTI chief, toward the end of the press conference, announced that the party will hold a rally at Minar-e-Pakistan on April 20.
