Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Friday that Imran Khan’s disqualification in Toshakhana case was just the beginning as he had been nominated in far more serious cases, including that of foreign funding.
Addressing a function in Karachi, Bilawal, who is also PPP chairman, said there were a lot of proofs of what he alleged former prime minister’s ‘wrongdoings’.
He further said that Imran, who would call others corrupt, himself turned out to be ‘corrupt’. Bilawal said that Imran Khan’s punishment should not end with disqualification only.
Bilawal Bhutto also stated on Twitter: “Election Commission of Pakistan has found Imran Khan guilty of corrupt practices. He now stands disqualified,” the foreign minister tweeted, slamming Khan for “spreading lies about the alleged corruption of his political opponents” and how he has now been “caught red-handed” himself.
He thanked the government of UAE for extending support to the flood-affected people of Pakistan. The foreign minister further said that the rehabilitation of flood-affected people would start soon. Bilawal claimed he was a different kind of a politician, who talked less and worked hard.
Federal Minister and PPP leader Sherry Rehman said the ECP had given the decision as per law and that the PTI should not give it any twist.
