Khan, Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI), said, “Since the elections are approaching, they are going to target Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital in their campaigns to malign me. If he is truthful, then the case should be dealt by the Supreme Court so that the situation is made clear to the masses.”
Khawaja Asif had accused Imran of speculating in Dubai real estate with the donations money he had collected for his charity hospital for cancer patients and transferring Rs4.50 billion outside the country from Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital’s accounts
Addressing a Press conference in Islamabad, Khan appealed to the Chief Justice to hear his case as soon as possible.
The PTI Chairman said that he had challenged Nawaz Sharif with 11 questions on Friday but he has not responded to any one of it as yet.
He said that unlike Nawaz Sharif he has not made factories for his own benefit but created institutions like Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre and NUML university.
Khan said that he has responded to the allegations of Chaudhry Nisar by showing record of his tax returns of the last 30 years but Nawaz Sharif has not responded to any of his allegation involving tax evasion, abuse of office and amassing wealth abroad.
