Prime Minister Imran Khan says court exposed Sharif family today

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the Sharif family had been affecting courts through tactics.

Addressing a meeting of party and government spokespersons on Thursday, he said that the court had exposed the Sharif family.

"The affidavit of Gilgit-Baltistan former chief judge Rana Shamim was written in the office of Nawaz Sharif's son. The affidavit has been brought before the case of Maryam Nawaz," he added.

He said that the PTI had provided all receipts in the foreign funding case. "Other parties also provide their receipts. The PML-N should reply to the funding from Arif Naqvi. Shehbaz Sharif should tell the nation about his telegraphic transfers (TTs)," he added.

He emphasized that these projects are of vital importance for the country and particularly Lahore. He added that government has no self-interest and is working for the welfare of citizens of Lahore.
