Govt job is to investigate corruption rather than blackmailing: Imran


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan has come out hard against the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for trying to blackmail the opposition with corruption charges and said that the government’s job is to investigate corruption rather than blackmailing.


Addressing a press conference at Bani Gala on Friday, Imran expressed his disappointment at Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s statement at Sukkur rally and said that corruption has no link with terrorism.

Imran asked PM Nawaz to answer the Panama Papers allegations rather than staging rallies. He said that Nawaz Sharif want to buy opposition.

Khan added that joint opposition has prepared ToRs for judicial commission to probe Panama Papers allegations.

PTI chief further said that the government’s duty was not to blackmail the people in the name of files but to punish the corrupt.

“They must be ashamed of themselves, their entire wealth has been invested outside Pakistan and when their corruption tales come to surface, they start slinging mud on others,” Imran said, adding that blackmailing tactics were being used by the ‘Maula Jatt’ of the PML-N government, but they failed.
