Pakistan Muslim League-N on Sunday claimed that a troika of former prime minister Imran Khan, his wife Bushra Bibi and her friend Farah Gogi made “billions” under the tenure of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government.
“It started in 2019, when Imran Khan gave a relief worth Rs320 million to Ahsan Jamil Gujjar, who is Farah’s husband under an amnesty scheme,” PML-N leader Atta Ullah Tarar said at a news conference alongside Uzma Bukhari in Lahore.
He added that the former PM gave the relief due to his personal relations and friendship between Bushra and Farah. Tarar alleged that Imran Khan and his family continued to carry out corruption throughout PTI’s tenure. “Commission and kickbacks were given while new records of corruption were made during PTI’s tenure.”
He said that Farah Gogi used Bushra Bibi’s influence to do appointments and transfers in Punjab, adding that Ahsan Gujjar and Farah Gogi now own assets worth Rs10 billion. “The assets that were in millions are now in billions. They should tell the poor Pakistani people so that they could also use their knowledge to come out of poverty,” he added.
On this occasion, he also played an audio tape — allegedly a conversation between a business tycoon and his daughter, revealing how Farah ‘demanded gift’ for the ex-first lady.
During the conversation, the woman said to her father that Farah Gogi allegedly demanded a precious diamond gift for the ex-first lady in return for “removing locks” on a project site and withdrawing a report against her father.
It was revealed during that discussion that Farah Gogi earlier had rejected a three-carat diamond sent by the daughter of business tycoon as unworthy and unsuitable for the first lady, who she allegedly said routinely wore such things, and asked for a five-carat diamond. The lady could be heard telling her father how Farah taunted her for sending “only a five-carat diamond ring”. She also promised that the former premier would overturn measures against the projects of the business tycoon if a “more valuable gift was offered.”
