Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

SIALKOT —Pak­istan Tehreek-e-In­saf (PTI) Chair­man Im­ran Khan on Fri­day stated that he backed the sitin or­gan­ised by Pak­istan Awaami Tehreek (PAT), adding that 14 mem­bers of PAT were mar-tyred two years ago but jus­tice has yet not been served. Ad­dress­ing the me­dia per­sons, Im­ran Khan said that the peo­ple are an­gry over Pak­istan Mus­lim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

He fur­ther stated that Prime Min-is­ter Nawaz Sharif should re­lin­quish his post un­til the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the Panama Leaks is not com-pleted. He said that an­other mem­ber of PML-N can serve as PM un­til the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is be­ing car­ried out. Khan ac­cused PM Nawaz Sharif and the Sharif fam-ily of be­ing in­volved in money laun­der­ing.

PTI Chair­man said that if the gov­ern­ment suf­fers then PM Nawaz and PMLN will be re­spon­si­ble. Im­ran said that rig­ging was proved in the con­stituency of De­fence Min­is­ter Khawaja Asif whereas 54,000 bo­gus votes were cast in his own con­stituency which have yet not been in­ves­ti­gated. Khan said that the gov­ern­ment is giv­ing rise to doubts by pro­long­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the Pa-nama Leaks is­sue.

He stated that an in­de­pen­dent Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau (NAB) shall be in­tro­duced in Azad Kash­mir. PTI Chair­man said that the amount of funds raised dur­ing an If­tari held at Shaukat Khanum Memo­rial Can­cer Hos­pi­tal (SKMCH) were the high­est dur­ing the 21-year his­tory of the hos­pi­tal. He said that the cur­rent gov­ern­ment s be­hav­iour is even worse than an­i­mals as hos­pi­tals are not even at­tacked dur­ing the time of war.

He crit­i­cised the Prime Min­is­ter by stat­ing that there is not even a sin­gle hos­pi­tal in the coun­try where the PM could have been treated. “These are a mafia who need to be de­feated”, Khan said.
