LAHORE: Hitting out at the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government, Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi earned Rs 90 million by raising fairs of his airline during strike of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) pilots.

The PML-N government even took money from the Inter Services Intelligence, he told a press conference here.

General Asad Durrani, former ISI chief, had said in its report to the Supreme Court that he gave money to the PML-N, underlined Imran Khan.

Khan claimed that PM Sharif’s government sold sugar to India and earned profit of Rs $ 60 million.

PTI chairman said the incumbent regime has mounted circular debt to Rs 600 billion.

The circular debt during Musharraf reign was Rs 200 billion, while the same reached Rs 480 soon after the PPP took over, he added.

Imran demanded audit of Nandipur Power Project through Asian Development Bank. “It was a project costing Rs 22 billion, and its cost has now risen to Rs 84 billion.”

Khan said PM Nawaz Sharif made false promises to the masses to end load-shedding.

Khan added construction cost of Islamabad airport was Rs 37 billion in 2008, while the PML-N government raised its cost to above Rs 100 billion during its tenure, claimed the PTI chief.

Imran went on to say that the LNG project was also kept under wraps by the PML-N.

The PTI chief said 53,000 bogus votes is an incompetence of any institution, it’s a straight rigging.
