ISLAMABAD: Accusing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan of not paying taxes on his income, Opposition leader in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday asked Khan to make details of his assets public.
Resurrecting the old debate of Khan’s London apartment, which he says was gifted to him by his former wife Jemima Khan, Nisar said documents showing the purchase and sale of that property should be provided.
“We want to see if Jemima has mentioned this transaction in her tax returns,” Nisar stated.
Calling Khan to take them to court and prove that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is guilty of the charges levelled against it, Nisar said Khan should also reveal his source of income to explain his lavish lifestyle.
Slamming Khan for only accusing PML-N and saving his criticism against the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Nisar said Khan and Interior Minister Rehman Malik speak the same language.
“They both criticise Nawaz and PML-N but they don’t attack each other,” he said.
Nisar added that Khan’s accusations against Nawaz Sharif’s son are lies. He said if Khan has doubts, he should file a case against him in the international courts.
“Imran has spent his entire life in London’s night clubs, he knows everything about the city, he should fight a case there,” Nisar said.
Providing another option to end this blame game, Nisar said PML-N is willing to go to any national court of Khan’s choice to solve this issue and prove its innocence.
“We will request the local court, in the interest of democracy, to form a commission to investigate our accusations against PTI and Khan’s against PML-N,” Nisar said, adding we will provide proofs to the court and the judges can investigate.
Blaming Khan of fooling the youth of Pakistan, Nisar said that he should take him to the court as he has challenged earlier.
“Imran has the habit of turning away from his words; he had abused the Chaudhry brothers in the past but he then also called them a genuine opposition in Pakistan, he fought against MQM but now he has a different tone towards the party. He was once a supporter of Pervez Musharraf and now he is against him,” Nisar listed.
