Each Pakistani owes Rs0.124 mn in debt today, says Imran
DHUR KOT: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Thursday said each Pakistani owed Rs0.124 million in debt today, which was Rs35,000 before 2008, ARY News reported.
“Before (former president Asif Ali) Zardari and (ousted prime minister) Nawaz Sharif came into power, every Pakistani owed Rs 35,000 in debt, which has risen to Rs0.124 mn each now,” he said while addressing a mamoth crowd in Dhur Kot.
Targetting the deposed PM, the PTI chief said palaces were bought in London and Dubai with the money stolen from Pakistan.
He requested people not to give vote to those whose money was deposited abroad.
Imran said the Supreme Court gave Nawaz full chance to provide evidences. He was asked to tell from where did he bring Rs300 billion, he said adding that the ex-PM lied before the top court about his earnings and failed to provide any single proof.
“Nawaz wants to conceal his money by attacking the Army and judiciary,” he said.
The PTI chief said if given chance, his government would give most of the funds to farmers. He said Rs200 billion were being spent on Orange Line Train, while had Rs60-70 billion been spent on farmers, it would have brought prosperity within a year.
