Imran Khan asks Pakistanis to help build pressure on state institutions
He said that it has been six months since Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been exposed in the Panama Papers for having offshore accounts and other concealed assets. This had led to the resignation of the Prime Minister of Iceland, and then British Prime Minister David Cameron was held answerable to parliament.
However, he said that in Pakistan the state of affairs is such that they have knocked on the doors of every institution including the Parliament, Supreme Court, National Accountability Bureau (NAB), and the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) but have not received any justice.
He said that Nawaz Sharif has ruined all state institutions by infiltrating them with his cronies and resorting to blatant nepotism and cronyism. He alleged that the FBR chairman is responsible for sending Rs250 million per month to Dubai, while the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman is the one who helped Nawaz Sharif rig the last elections.
“The only way out is have public pressure on state institutions,’ he said. Therefore, it was necessary to support him build pressure on these state institutions and to support during the upcoming march to Raiwind. “It is not only Nawaz Sharif but these institutions which are on trial.”
“This is our jihad against corruption, which the biggest cancer affecting Pakistan,” he said. Imran urged overseas Pakistanis to help him in any way possible just as they had helped him to establish the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital.
