KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Friday said it had come to his attention that some ministers in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa cabinet were indulging in corruption.
In a statement issued from the PTI’s Karachi Media Cell, Khan demanded of Chief Minister Pervez Khattak to immediately investigate and take action against these ministers.
Khan reminded that PTI was given an electoral mandate on two main commitments: One, to bring peace to the country, especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the second to stamp out corruption.
The PTI chief stated that there could be absolutely no compromise on these two commitments.
He pointed out that already, the government had lost eight billion rupees in just one corruption case involving Swiss accounts and now would lose another four billion rupees in fines as a result of expedient compromises on the same case.
All this money could have gone towards investment in education and other development projects, Khan said.
He was adamant that the PTI would not tolerate corruption at any level but would act immediately to punish those responsible.
