ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Minister of State for Interior Talal Chaudhry on Thursday said those who were conspiring against the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) were now being exposed.
Talking to media representatives in Islamabad, Talal Chaudhry said the Finance Minister Ishaq Dar was indicted in just 48 hours but leaders of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) were not indicted in National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Cases even after lapse of six months.
The minister said former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified in the Panama Papers Case for not receiving salary from his son, and undue haste was shown in his Case. He said it was unfortunate that an attempt was made to remove Nawaz Sharif from the politics of Country.
The state minister asserted the ultimate Court was the Court of the people which would decide through election who would govern the Country.
Talking about Banigala Case, Talal Chaudhry said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan would be disqualified for evading taxes, misdeclaring assets and laundering money. He said the Supreme Court of Pakistan heard the Case of Imran Khan and gave him numerous opportunities but he could not satisfy the Court about his assets.
Talal Chaudhry said for years, Imran Khan did not declare his flat in London to tax authorities and only declared it through a money whitening scheme. He said now Imran Khan wanted that he should not be disqualified for misdeclaring his assets and his illegal act should only be called “an innocent omission and mistake”.
The minister said now Imran Khan was telling the Court that his ex-wife Jemima Khan gave him millions of dollars and all this amount was unaccounted for. “Imran Khan will be exposed before the public for his lies,” he added.
