KARACHI: Rebutting allegations, Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain declared on Wednesday that he had turned down illegitimate money offered by 'visitors to his home', Express News reported.

Addressing a  public gathering via phone, Hussain said that he should not be targeted in the NRO case since he never accepted illegitimate money offered to him by agencies. He stated that the men who attempted to give him money had appeared on news channels in Pakistan and had corroborated his claim.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf leader Imran Khan had earlier on Wednesday spoken of politicians who were accused of 'taking' millions of rupees from Pakistan, during a press conference in Islamabad.

Khan had expressed his dissatisfaction with powerful men in Pakistan committing crimes and getting away through NROs.

The PTI chief taking a swipe at politicians said that those who “have allegations against them of taking Rs3.5 million and those who have Rs5 billion in Switzerland yet say they will not tell” will not be able to save the country.

Religious donations and funds collectors, tax collectors hate MQM's and it's affiliates, they have a right to express their opinions too.
