KARACHI : Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday slammed federal ministers and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in his address to the Karachi Bar.
Sporting a Jinnah cap, the cricketer-turned-politician said that corruption on a small level never prevented a country from growing economically.
“In Pakistan, federal ministers possess Iqamas,” he said. “If the prime minister is involved in corruption, then he can never stop it from spreading to the lower level.”
The PTI chairman said that it was not a difficult task to collect tax from the people of Pakistan or widen the tax net in the country.
Imran Khan said that if the police in Pakistan were skilled and professional, the need to call Rangers would not have arisen.
“Rangers can never do the job of the police,” he said. “Without merit, institutions can never operate properly,” he added.
Imran Khan said that IG Sindh AD Khawaja had a couple of days ago disclosed corruption of thousands of police officers.
Imran cited the example of his cancer hospital and said that Shaukat Khanum was operating successfully due to merit.
“Even my own recommendations were rejected by Shaukat Khanum hospital,” he said.
