No politician other than me has spoken against Malik Raiz: Imran

Riaz has bribed many politicians but he must know he can never bribe me: PTI chief

HYDERABAD: Not even a single politician has spoken against real-estate tycoon Malik Riaz but me, said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Friday.

Addressing a large rally in Hyderabad, Imran said that Riaz has bribed many politicians but he must know he can never bribe me.

“Raiz knows that every leader has a price and he can buy them but not me; he cannot buy me nor my party,” he said.

Repeating his old promise of creating a new Pakistan once voted into power, Imran said he will bring the current corrupt setup to an end.

He said that when people are murdered in Karachi, all the leaders get together and broker a deal favourable to them but fail to deliver justice to the victims.

The PTI chief told the rally participants to question their leaders who hid their wealth abroad rather than investing it in Pakistan.

“Politicians who have saved assets in foreign countries are a part of the current evil system,” Imran said.

The PTI chief added that his party will not give a ministry to anyone who owns property or other assets abroad.

Criticising the government’s inability to tax everyone equally, Imran said that only the poor people paid taxes in Pakistan, while rich were spared.

The time has come when the ultimate sovereign – the people of Pakistan – must assert itself. At long last we have a chance to throw off the rubber-stamp parliament and a thoroughly corrupt and discredited rulers.
