The ruling coalition on Tuesday come hard against PTI after ECP verdict and urged the executive to refer the matter pertaining to PTI’s prohibited funding to the judiciary for further action. Addressing the national assembly, Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif asked institution that if Mian Nawaz Sharif was disqualified for lifetime in case he could not receive money from his son company then why not to convict Imran Khan in today case.
He said the judiciary should assess the evidence mentioned in the decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan regarding foreign funding of the PTI. He said the judiciary should decide the matter on merit to uphold the law and constitution as well as to end the culture of abusive language and unconstitutional acts. He said the ECP today fulfilled its responsibility by declaring that PTI had received prohibited foreign funding.
He said Imran Khan is a foreign funded agent, who harmed and maligned the state institutions. He said what an irony it is that institutions are fine if they support him and he starts hurling abuses on them if they will withdraw their support. Quoting ECP’s decision, the Defence Minister said it has now been proved that Imran Khan accepted funding from foreign countries, including the United States, Canada, India, Israel and the United Kingdom. He said this case is a bright example of money laundering.
He said it will be a great tragedy to Pakistan if Imran Khan goes unscathed.
