Some elements, who have had offshore companies, wanted the accountability of the Prime Minister only, which was injustice, he said adding that all the people should be accountable without any discrimination.

To another question, he said the opposition had the right to hold peaceful protest on the issue but it should not manipulate the situation for point-scoring.

The Pkistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, he said, had dual standards regarding the accountability. Its politics of sit-ins had weakened the democracy in the country, he maintained.
