KOT ADDU: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan is expected to address a rally in Kot Addu today.
Imran has reached the venue of the rally along with other party leaders such as Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan.
PTI supporters have shown up in large numbers to attend the rally and show their support for the party.
While addressing a rally in Uch Sharif on Thursday, Imran claimed former prime minister Nawaz Sharif failed to provide a single document as evidence to the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case.
The Supreme Court gave complete chance to Nawaz Sharif [to clarify] as to how did he send Rs300 billion abroad, he claimed.
“Nawaz Sharif lied and failed to present a single document as evidence,” he said. “When the JIT [Joint Investigation Team] was formed, even then no evidence was provided to substantiate their claims.”
The PTI chief questioned PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as to why was a criminal being given protocol.
“What message is being conveyed? Does this mean one should not steal small things and go for bigger ones?” he questioned, lamenting that prisons in the country are overcrowded with poor people involved in petty crimes.
“The one who took away Rs300 billion asks why was he ousted,” Khan took a jibe at Nawaz. “You are attacking the courts to hide your corruption.”
He said his party, after coming into power, will provide highest capital and facilities to farmers.
Noting that Rs200 billion is being spent on Orange Line Train that covers only 27 kilometres, the PTI chairperson said if a lesser amount is given to farmers, then it would bring prosperity in the country.
