KARACHI : Talking to media after surviving Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s (PMLN) Hanif Abbasi s disqualification petition, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan stated that he was disappointed in Jahangir Tareen’s disqualification.
Khan was talking to media here in Karachi and announced to accept landmark’s judgment of the apex court. “Case was lodged against such a person who did not hold public office for a single day”, Khan said. “Jehangir Tareen pays tax more than anyone else in Pakistan and we (PTI) will file review petition against Tareen’s disqualification”, he added.
Khan unleashed verbal onslaught against Nawaz Sharif and stated that latter submitted only Qatari letters in his defence. ‘No other parliamentarian can undergo such elongated accountability. It is a crime to juxtapose criminals againt honest people”, maintained Khan.
Khan took a jibe at National Accountability Bureau and said that anti-graft watchdog submitted half-finished evidence with apex court in Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.
Earlier, Pakistan’s top court on Friday granted clean chit to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan in much-awaited and much-hyped disqualification case and dismissed all accusations levelled by PMLN s Hanif Abbasi. The apex court also rejected accusations of foreign funding over paucity of evidence and stated that it was not mandatory for Imran Khan to declare his offshore company Niazi Services Limited.
