DERA ISMAIL KHAN -UNS Q`: PTI chief Imran Khan on Tuesday issued a stern warning to the new Chairman NAB, stating that all eyes were on him and if he protected the corrupt, people will take to the streets.
Speaking to media officials during a press conference, Imran said that PML-N and PPP were protecting the corrupt elite in the country.
“There are various cases of corruption registered against Khursheed Shah,” he said.
Imran claimed that former NAB Chairman Qamar Zaman Chaudhry had protected Asif Ali Zardari and Ishaq Dar by using his influence. He issued a stern warning to the new NAB chief, urging him that PTI was keeping a keen eye on his performance.
“We (PTI) were not consulted with regard to the appointment of the new NAB chief,” said Imran. “If he does not hold the corrupt accountable, we will take to the streets.”
The cricketer-turned-politician stated that Nawaz Sharif was lying continuously to the nation. Imran alleged that Nawaz owned 29 companies which were located outside Pakistan.
Imran said that PTI had suggested three names for the post of Chairman NAB but they were all ignored. He said that the two main political parties of Pakistan, which were PPP and PML-N, both of them were on the same page.
During his press conference, Imran Khan also slammed JUI-F chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rahman.
“He refers to himself as a religious man,” said Imran. “When you have someone like Maulana Fazal-ur-Rahman, there is no need for Jews to conspire against Pakistan,” he added.
Imran said that PML-N was actively involved in maligning the army as well as the apex court in order to hide their own malpractices.
