Imran for JIT probe into Nawaz's business ties

QUETTA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf  chairman Imran Khan on Friday claimed that staying of Indian spy Kulbhusan Yadav's death sentence by the International Court of Justice was a result of Prime Minister Nawaz Shairf's meeting with Indian steel tycoon Sajjan Jindal.

Addressing a rally in Balochistan's capital, Khan called for a probe into foreign assets of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, demanding the Joint Investigation Team also figure out who are the business partners of Mr Sharif. .

He said India would not have cared about the world court ruling if it had arrested a Pakistani spy.

He called on the prime minister to disclose the names of business partners of his children in India. Taking an exception to his political opponents, the former cricket hero said Asfandyar Wali Khan, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Mehmood Khan Achakzai, Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif have been running their "family companies' in the country.

 

He said the nation was not ready to trust the prime minister anymore following the Dawn Leaks episode, warning the government of street protests if it made any effort to curb freedom of media and social media.

 

The PTI chairman vowed to introduce a local government system in Balochostan similar to that of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He said only a few politicians from Balochistan were not involved in corruption.

Imran Khan lauded his workers for attending the rally in large numbers despite threats of suicide bombings. Strict security arrangements were made in Quetta with large number of police and paramilitary troops patrolling the streets of Quetta.

TV footage showed man, women, children entering the venue with PTI flags in their hands. Separate enclosures were allocated to the female participants of the rally.

Famous Pakistani singer Attaullah Khan Esa Khelvi enthralled the PTI workers by singing party anthems in the Ayub Stadium. It was PTI's first meeting in the provincial capital of Balochistan since 2012.
