PTI politicizing Panama papers for petty political gains: Anusha

ISLAMABAD, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 30th Jan, 2017 ) : Minister of State of Information Technology and Telecommunication Anusha Rahman Monday said Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) was politicizing the Panama papers issue for petty political gains. Talking to media outside the Supreme Court, the minister said that PTI had failed to produce any single evidence in the court on Panama papers and now they were just misleading the people on the issue.

She said that politicians had to face allegations but Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was the only political leader, who had presented himself for accountability for false allegations levelled by the opponent political party. She said the people were fully supporting the Prime Minister as they knew that his name was not mentioned in the Panama Papers and that the matter was propagated just to mislead them. The minister said it was for the first time in the history of the country that old money transactions' record was provided with full documents before the honorable court.

She said despite negative propaganda, the government of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz continued working on fulfillment of its agenda of making Pakistan a prosperous and progressive country. She said even PTI chief himself was a confused person as evident from the facts and figures which he daily said in public, refutes those contained in the documents available with the court. Central leader Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) Talal Chaudhry said that chief of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan should stop misleading people on Panama papers and present trail of foreign funding to his party.

He asked the PTI chief to show financial documents in that regard so that people should know as to from where the amount collected as donations and where it was spent. "Now PTI chief Imran Khan should stop deceiving people and wait for the 2018 election which would be an eye opener for him, he added. He said that there was not a single evidence against the prime minister in the documents submitted by the PTI with the court. They had failed to collect any proof of what they were saying in public, he added.
