PTI seeks apology from PML-N for running smear campaign against Khan


Demands disclosure of Toshakhana gifts retained by generals, judges

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry sought apology from the PML-N for leveling baseless allegations and running smear campaign against PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi during the last eleven months, demanding to unfurl details of foreign gifts retained by military generals and judges by putting an end to the idea of sacred cow.

PTI Senior Vice President, in a statement on Monday, said that they had been attacking Imran Khan and his wife with advertisements worth billions but releasing of Toshakhana record was yet another proof that of their corruption. Fawad Chaudhry said that the Toshakhana list showed as how the Nawaz Sharif family and the Zardari family robbed and looted the Toshakhana, adding that the record turned out they were themselves the guilty party. “Out of these people, who retained Toshakhana gifts, it was only Imran Khan, who followed the legal path to acquire the gifts,” Fawad maintained. He also claimed that the PTI Chairman and his wife had acquired the smallest number of gifts from the repository.

“The true misuse of the Toshakhana was how Nawaz Sharif and Zardari took out cars from there,” he said, adding that the price paid for the luxury vehicles was mere pennies compared to their original worth in a sheer blatant violation of the rules. “They didn’t even leave a box of pineapples,” he added. “I also believe that this list is still incomplete”, he said, adding: “The list starts from 2002 and we should at least see the list since 1988.” “Furthermore, the gifts received by generals and judges should also be included,” he said, demanding an end to “the idea of the sacred cow”.
