PML-N to sue Imran Khan over bribe allegations
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to take legal course of action against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan for leveling 10 billion rupees bribe allegations on the party leadership allegedly for adopting silence over Panamagate issue, ARY News reported.
Spokesperson Punjab government Malik Ahmed Khan has confirmed Friday that the ruling party has decided to sue PTI chairman for defaming Sharif family by declaring Khan’s claim a sheer lie.
It is worth mentioning here that Imran Khan earlier had claimed to be offered Rs 10 billion by a close aide of Shahbaz Sharif, the chief minister of Punjab and brother of the premier. However, Khan has not disclosed any name so far.
Imran Khan’s claims in aftermath of Panamagate verdict further fueled the uncertainty by making the ruling party to respond on it.
Earlier today, the provincial law minister, Rana Sanaullah, has also declared Imran Khan’s allegations ‘baseless’ by stating that such accusations aim to pressurize the government institutions.
A senior PML-N leader, Daniyal Aziz, yesterday urged Imran Khan to disclose the name of the person who approached him with an intention to offer a bribe worth Rs 10 billion.
Subsequently, Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif while addressing a gathering yesterday in Lahore said that Imran Khan has set a record of telling lies and refuted his claims.
