Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid said Friday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan should respond to the allegations of corruption of $200,000 instead of accusing others.
“Allegation Khan” has now become “Bholey Khan”, said Rashid, in a jibe at the PTI chief while talking to reporters at the Parliament House.
He said that Khan’s workers had started implementation of his lesson against corruption as PTI’s founding member Akbar Babar has moved the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) over charges of $2 million embezzlement in PTI funds.
Rashid said that earlier, people who donated money for Shaukat Khanum hospital from the US came to Pakistan and levelled allegation of corruption against Khan but they were “tortured and forced to leave the country”. He said that the PTI leader should gather moral courage and answer the allegations of corruption.
“Khan incited people to attack Pakistan Television (PTV) Headquarters and other government buildings and its proof is available on videos,” said Rashid, adding that it was the police’s responsibility to implement arrest warrants against the PTI chief.
“How can a leader talk of the rights of the common man when his pets eat foreign-manufactured food,” questioned the minister.
