PESHAWAR, July 17 (APP): Adviser to the Prime Minister Amir Muqam Sunday said Pakistan Tehreek-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan topped the list of off-shore companies owners.
Criticizing both Imran Khan and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, he suggested Jamat-e-Isami chief Siraj Ul Haq, coalition parters in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), to have a train march for a corruption-free KP where he claimed more than Rs 50 million corruption was done in different government departments every day.
Muqam was addressing a workers convention and Eid Milan Party of Pakistan Muslim League-N here. Thousands of PML-N workers, including women and leaders attended the convention, who raised vociferous slogans in favour of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.
He termed the presence of large number of people in the convention showed their trust in the Prime Minister and his policies for a prosperous Pakistan. The life standard of the common man had improved and with the grace of Allah Almighty, Pakistan was now out of the crises and was the track to become a progressive nation of the world.
The people of other countries, he said, were now calling Pakistan as the Asian Tiger due to to its economic progress.
He said the people had reposed their trust in the Prime Minister by voting for PML-N candidates in the by-polls.
He said Nawaz Sharif would be Prime Minister even after 2018 on the basis of his performance.
Amir Muqam said those making hue and cry for accountability of others should come forward and present themselves for the process as the PML-N
already wanted a broad-base Ehtisab (accountability).
Corruption, he said, has decreased during the present PML-N government.
He said Imran’s politics of ‘Darna’ (sit-in) was not for seeking
solution of problems being faced by the people, rather it was aimed at to become prime minister. The top slot, he said, could only be achieved by serving the people and not through creating problems for them through staging sit-ins.
He said Imran Khan had bought a flat in London through an offshore company. He himself admitted that he formed the offshore company to buy the flat in 1983 to evade British taxes.
Evading taxes, whether in London or Pakistan, was a crime which was committed by Imran, he added.
Muqam said the KP people had given his (Imran’s) party mandate in last general election but his party failed to serve the people.
He said despite publishing of an advertosement in the media against one KP minister by the Managing Director of Khyber Bank, Imran did not take any action aginst him. Rather more incentives were given to the
minister by Chief Minister Pervez Khattak, he added.
He asked Imran to tell the people who was responsible for the corruption as both BoK MD and the minister concerned were still on their posts.
He reminded Imran of talking construction of 360 dams in the province.
It was just a castle in the air, he should rather to take practical steps, he added.
Amir Muqam said Shakeel Durrani had resigned due to rampant corruption and same was the case with the Director General Ehtisab Commission Khyber Pakhtunkhwa who alleged that things were not going in a right direction.
He said all the claims of the PTI government of providing free education, free health facilities, facilities at the hospitals to the public, changing in polive culture andgiving power to local government elected representatives were just hallow slogans.
He also asked PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to bring back his father. “There is neither any Mr 10 percent or any Raja Rental in the PML-N government,” he added. The PML-N believed in serving the people without any political affiliation and would continue by honouring
their mandate given to it, he added.
Amir Muqam urged the international community to take notice of the Indian-army atrocities in occupied Kashmir where hundreds and thousands of innocent Kashmiries lost their precious life for the just cause of the right of self determination under United Nation resolutions.
Criticizing the Indian army atrocities against innocent Kashmiries, he said Kashmir was on top of the PML-N agenda.
Amir Muqam also paid rich tribute to Abdul Sattar Edhi for rendering great sacrifices for the humanity.
He said all the promises the PML-N had made with the people of PK-8 would be fulfilled without any delay.
