TALAGANG: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday stated that resistance against corruption has turned into a nationwide campaign and time is not distant when Pakistan will change for good.
He said that nation must rise against corruption. “The Pakistani nation has understood that the real problem of the country is corruption,” Imran stated this while addressing a public gathering in Talagang Town of Chakwal district.
“Panamgate is a case of corruption as well as money laundering and unless this country is purged of corruption, we have no future he added. “The resistance against corruption has turned into a nationwide campaign and time is not distant when Pakistan will change for good,” Imran remarked.
During the speech that PTI chairman accused former president Asif Ali Zardari’s close aide Dr Asim Hussain of looting Rs460 billion from the national exchequer. Similarly, he claimed PPP leader Sharjeel Memon was involved in a corruption of Rs5 billion.
Imran went on to advise PPP co-chairman to “acquire the services of a Qatari prince as well,” referring to the Qatari letter that the Sharif family presented before the apex Court in the Panamagate case. He, however, said that “there are some people in PPP who do not want corruption.”
