ISLAMABAD, Nov 23 (APP): Adviser to the Prime Minister Dr Musadik Malik Wednesday said Pakistan Tehreek i Insaf (PTI) leaders had no respect for state institutions.
They maligned the institutions, but they were always ready to accept their decisions, if the same were in the PTI’s favour, he said while talking in a PTV programme.
He said the PTI leadership was in the habit of levelling ‘baseless’ allegations but they tried to find ways for escape when asked for evidence.
They had earlier hurled electoral rigging charges and were now engaged in politicking on the Panama Papers, but they had nothing to prove the same, Musadik said.
The Adviser said the PTI was blaming the government for delaying the Panama Papers case in the Supreme Court but in fact the party’s counsel were adopting delaying tactics and and taking time from the court.
He said the prime minister had presented himself and his family for investigations on the Panama Papers on the PTI’s demand and now they should also face the cases filed against them.
There had been a lot of contradictions in the statements of PTI chief Imran Khan about his assets as he should clarify his position, he added.
Musadik said the government was determined to further strengthen accountability process through legislation and it would be carried out in consultation with all the stakeholders.
