Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan claimed here on Sunday that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is not going to escape in the Panama Papers case being heard by the Supreme Court.
Addressing a rally here, he slammed the rulers over non-provision of heath and other basic necessities of life to the people of the country.
He said that present rulers have been in power for nearly 30 years, but the situation in public hospitals could not be improved. “These `insensitive’ rulers have no idea of conditions in public hospitals,” he said, adding that people are forced to breathe their last on hospitals’ floor as there are not enough beds available for patients.
“They (rulers) themselves go abroad for medical check-ups and consider it below their dignity to go to a hospital in the country,” he said.
“PM Nawaz Sharif will have to go home if the Qatari prince’s letter turns out to be bogus,” he claimed.
He regretted that the nation’s wealth is laundered out of country and this is actual Panama case. He claimed the PM Sharif has spent at least Rs12 billion on advertisements from the national treasury, saying his government could have utilised the funds on improving the health facilities in the country.
He criticized the premier for asking for immunity regarding his speech in the Parliament. “A lay man goes to prison for speaking a lie, but they (rulers) want immunity for doing the same,” the PTI chief remarked.
“I am glad that people took to streets on my call. Our activists were jailed but they could not be unnerved,” he said, adding that the youths will not have a future unless corruption is not rooted out from the country.
