The foreign funding case proceedings should be telecast live, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Wednesday, as he has challenged all suspicions about his party’s activities.
Talking to reporters in South Waziristan, the Prime Minister said that the proceedings should be open and party leaders should attend the hearings.
Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “I presented this challenge to the fact that PTI is the only political party that has been involved in raising political funds,” said Prime Minister Imran Khan. The source of remittances runs on.
Criticizing the opposition, he said that Maulana Fazlur Rehman, head of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and JUI-F, used madrassa students to blackmail governments.
“How is he (Fazl) the owner of properties worth billions of rupees?” Asked by the Prime Minister, he added that the PDM chiefs were protesting with the sole purpose of getting concessions under the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).
Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “They do not understand the mentality of the nation. Our people are politically aware. They will not come forward to support such thieves.”
The Prime Minister said that he was grateful to the Opposition for highlighting the issue of foreign funding and now the sources of funds of all parties should be made public.
The Prime Minister stressed that it was now the turn of the opposition parties to disclose the source of their funds.
