15th January 2021: The Prime Minister, in response to a question about the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) foreign funding case in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), said he would request the ECP to make public the audited reports of PTI, PPP, PML-N and JUI-F for clarity of the issue among the masses.
The PTI, he added, was the only political party in Pakistan, which launched political fund-raising campaigns abroad to collect funds from the expatriate community and all the party funds received from 40,000 overseas Pakistanis were properly audited and accounted for.
“We don’t have the people like Cheeni Walay and Paparr Walay,” the Prime Minister remarked, and said he knew that the opposition parties from the PDM got foreign funding.
About the government’s future course of action after the expiry of Nawaz Sharif’s passport and the reports of his travel to Saudi Arabia, Imran Khan said the matter was under consultation. The Prime Minister, in response to another question, said he never gave a date about bringing Nawaz Sharif back to country. There were only two options for bringing him (Nawaz) back including through deportation or extradition. He, however, regretted that the whole family of Sharifs and Ishaq Dar are hiding in London to protect the looted public wealth.
About the Senate elections, the Prime Minister said the government had approached the Supreme Court to ensure transparency in the elections of the Upper House of Parliament through open ballot and check corruption.
