Won’t let Imran hide behind welfare institutes: Khawaja Asif

SIALKOT, JUL 23 (DNA) – Defence Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Khawaja Asif has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will not be allowed to hide behind welfare institutions.

The minister expressed his views while talking to media after holding an open court at the Muslim League House in Sialkot, and demanded Imran Khan to give details of the assets that he inherited.

Khawaja Asif said there is a difference between welfare institutions and politics, and we won’t allow PTI chief to misuse institutes like National University of Modern Languages (NUML) and Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKCHRC). Politics is a cruel thing, he remarked.

The defence minister continued that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is being held accountable for those things which are not even linked with him, but Imran Khan is being asked about his own particulars. We have proven our money trail, he commented, now it is Imran’s turn.

Asif said Imran Khan has changed three to four statements on his Bani Gala palace. He advised PTI chairman to not run away as he will be chased down by PML-N.

The minister said Imran has lodged a defamation case again me for seeking details about the donations that he received. Khawaja Asif let it be known that he is still standing firm on his viewpoint, and will question Imran Khan in the court.

It is worth mentioning here that Imran has always rubbished PML-N’s claims of corruption in the donations that Shaukat Khanum Hospital and NUML receive, and has time and again challenged the incumbent government to take action against him if it has got any proof of embezzlements of funds.

PTI chief also said that he never committed tax evasion and money laundering, and that is the reason why people give donations worth millions of rupees for his cancer hospital and university.=DNA
