ISLAMABAD: The PTI chief Imran Khan has said he has submitted the complete money trail for his Bani Gala residence. However, he would quit politics if the Supreme Court disqualified him.

“I have submitted the entire money trail. However, if any of my money trails proves to be fake, I shall leave politics. If I am disqualified, I shall not use clause 203 to continue as president of the party. I shall leave politics in that case,” Imran said on Saturday.

The PTI chief was responding to a question of anchor Mansoor Ali Khan, who was interviewing him for the Express News programme ‘To The Point’. “Whether Jahangir Tareen or I, whosoever is disqualified, will not remain in the party,” he said.

Imran said the deposed premier Nawaz Sharif was using his party to save his corruption. It is the first time that action has been taken on merit against the Sharif family. No court had ever brought the Sharif family under law ever, he said.

Imran ruled out the possibility of any technocrat government. Talking with reference to his party’s possible with the PPP, he said: “If Aitzaz Ahsan was chief of the PPP, we could talk with him but as long as Asif Ali Zardari heads the party, any alliance with the PPP is impossible.”

He said the PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was ‘a child’, controlled by his father, Zardari. The real power, he claimed, is in the hands of Zardari who uses the party for his own purposes.

“If PPP becomes a real democratic party, we can always have dialogue with them. The PPP and the PML-N, however, have always played fixed-matches, he added.

Talking with reference to a shameful incident in DI Khan, he said he contacted the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa inspector general immediately after reports of the event surfaced.

“The allegations Dawar Khan levelled against the PTI leader Ali Amin Gudapur turned out to be false. Gundapur said if any of his relatives was found involved in the event, he should be hanged. The police arrested 7 out of the 9 accused nominated in the issue within 24 hours,” he added.
