Says shameful to strike plea bargain with robbers
ISLAMABADL: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday cancelled the membership of dozens of party workers for violating party policies. Party workers from four districts, Mianwali, Attock, Narowal and Faisalabad were dismissed and show cause notices issued to them.
Imran accused the workers of violating party policies in the last stage of the local bodies elections held in Punjab province. He also accused Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of bribing political workers and buying their support. “Nawaz Sharif only wins elections and maintains power by rigging the vote or buying it,” Imran said. He also said the country will always remember the premier for his dishonest politics.
Meanwhile, PTI Chairman Imran Khan Saturday criticized the plea bargain decision by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Balochistan saying it is shameful to strike such a deal with thieves and robbers.
The PTI chairman asserted the NAB has turned into a constitutional institution that patronizes corruption; he remarked adding making state regulators subservient to the ministries is yet another way for corruption. The PTI meeting also discussed the plea bargain being offered by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to the people involved in mega corruption cases.
The top leadership of PT met to discuss the judicial commission report on Quetta terrorist attack and the government reaction over it. “We will raise the report of Justice Qazi Faez Isa commission at every forum,” he said in a statement issued after a meeting presided by him. PTI leadership also discussed the Panama Leaks probe and hearing of the case in Supreme Court with focus on the party’s future strategy in this respect. NNI/ News Desk
