Says assets of Sharif family in England were bought with honest and hard-earned money.

ISLAMABAD:


Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday challenged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan to prove allegations against the PML-N chief within three days or he will make public something very important against Imran.


Addressing a press conference flanked by PML-N central information secretary Mushahidullah Khan, Nisar criticised Imran Khan for levelling accusations against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leadership and called him a tax evader.

“This is enough… lets now prove all allegations you have levelled against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif and his family members by taking the party leadership to any court in the country or abroad,” Nisar said.

“We are ready to defend them”, he added.

Defending the assets of Sharif family in England, Nisar said, these have been obtained legally and bought with honest and hard-earned money. “Hassan Nawaz runs legal business in England and if someone has any objection to this he should go to a court in UK,” he asserted.

Nisar declared that though he could, he would not reveal Imran’s personal matters owing to past 40 years of friendly relations with him.

Nisar also distributed some tax returns as proofs of tax evasion, saying that as per tax returns, Imran had declared Rs73 million worth of assets and two bank accounts in 2004 but did not mention any cash in the accounts. In 2005 the assets amounted to Rs81.5 million, but his return did not mention the 300-kanal land which was transferred in his name in the same year, Nisar added.

Nisar further said that in 2006, Imran’s assets decreased to Rs34.5 million besides mentioning three accounts in foreign banks but again did not mention any cash in the accounts, which he said is violation of the rules.

Whereas in 2007, the total assets remained the same, however, there was an addition of another bank account with cash in Euros and other foreign account worth around $0.125 million, he said, and questioned whether this money belongs to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital.

He called on Imran Khan to make public the source of funds for financing the countrywide political campaign of PTI.

saad | 8 years ago | Reply If Imran khan has a little courage he should prove his words n allegations. Why not he go to any court of Pakistan instead of hollow blame game? He is expert only in making allegation. He should accept challenge of PMLN people's. @ Jalil Malik Its not PMLN actually its Imran khan n PTI, who are suffering from PMLN phobia. See press conferences n addresses of IK of last one year, he has only one topic, making false allegations against PMLN. Nawaz sharif didn't even bothered to talk about IK. So one can easily decide who is suffering from phobia. Ahmad Mukhtar + Altaf Hussain = Imran Khan
