Imran insists on eradication of corruption for ‘system of justice’

SIALKOT: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Sunday said those countries become prosperous which root out corruption, bring a system of justice and strengthen their state institutions, ARY News reported.

Responding to a recent statement of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, he said without eradicating corruption, development takes place only in rulers’ bank accounts.

Nawaz had said that there were so many scandals of corruption in Pakistan, and if they were dealt with, one would lose focus on anything else.

Imran said sans uprooting corruption, nation becomes poor, only elites become richer and the country could not move forward.

“We are on a crossroad. A nation either takes the right or the wrong path from here. One goes towards destruction and the other goes towards prosperity and we have to decide what to choose,” he said.

Citing to the example of Singapore’s development, he said once Pakistan had per capita income equal to Singapore then the latter reached at a glorious peak.

“In Singapore they strengthened the state by targeting corruption and fortifying state institutions which eventually led them on the path of development,” he said.

He said justice is imperative for development. It was justice which led to the development of the Muslims so they conquered the world, he added.

Imran said when the corrupts are not caught, only a slim percentage of the population thrive, while the rest suffers. The corrupt loot the nation, and enslave them, he said.
