Why IK reluctant of naming person behind bribe offer2017/07/24
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders say nothing has been proved against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the JIT report and he will emerge successful in the Supreme Court.
Both the PML-N leaders reiterated that the premier and his family is innocent and defended corruption allegations against the first family, a verdict over which is soon to be delivered by the apex court.
Addressing a joint news conference in Islamabad on Sunday, Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development Division Dr. Tariq Fazal Chaudhary and MNA Daniyal Aziz said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif presented himself and his three generations for accountability.
They said nothing wrong was proved against the Prime Minister as the  JIT report remained under perusal and discussion in the Supreme Court last week.
Tariq Fazal Chaudhary said after failure to compete Nawaz Sharif in the court of the people through performance, Imran Khan has pinned hopes on the Supreme Court but the Prime Minister will also succeed there.
He said that the PTI chief who has been asking others for accountability could not produce even a single record of his own assets.
Speaking on the occasion MNA Daniyal Aziz said Prime Minister will succeed in the next general elections while Imran Khan`s trail of political failures will continue.
The PML-N leader demanded of opposition party chief Imran Khan to name the person who had offered him Rs 100 million to keep mum over leak carried by Panama Papers in April 2016. He asked Khan to explain his alleged reluctancy to name the person behind the bribe offer.
Daniyal Aziz accused that Khan tells a hundred lies to cover for one. He said that Khan is rightly called 'accuser Khan' as his politics is all about mudslinging and leveling allegations against rivals. He also alleged Khan of switching among different statements when he was asked to provide money trail for his apartment.
While crticising the party Imran Khan leads, Daniyal Aziz said that the people who object to his kind of politics and his decisions is made to part ways. He said that details regarding residence permit that was acquired by the premier have been let out and the issue is explained which is why his innocence would soon be proved. - NNI
