Prime Minister Imran Khan lauded the role of Pakistan’s Foreign Office in leading a full campaign to highlight the Kashmir issue globally and categorically stated that Pakistan would not resume talks with India till it restored the special status of the occupied Kashmir on Tuesday.
“Unless India reverts its August 5, 2019 action, Pakistan will not hold talks,” he said in a live telephonic call session with the general public.
The prime minister swore that as long as he was alive, he would not spare the Sharif family for corruption and building mafias. “Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif attacked the Supreme Court with sticks and the then Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah had to run to save his life,” he said.
“Shehbaz Sharif is trying to flee abroad. A case of massive money laundering has been registered against him. Yes, there are other cases. I will never give NRO to anyone; I have no fear. I only fear Allah; I am accountable to Him. People here are rotting in jails and we let them (Sharifs) go.”He maintained.
Imran said the biggest problem of Pakistan was non-existence of the rule of law, which was founded by Justice Munir and since then justice had never come.
“To make the powerful accountable to law is a Jihad. We will make the corrupt political leaders and mafias surrender before the rule of law.”He said.
Imran vowed to uphold the supremacy of law and justice to make Pakistan great. He said the government was firm to ensure socio-economic justice in the country. He maintained that the country was destroyed when the chief or powerful class stole money and that money was sent abroad through money laundering.
Imran asked the public to report cases of illegal land grabbing directly to him. The prime minister said his government did not interfere with the working of the judiciary and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), as it wanted the rule of law in its true spirit.
“The sugar industrialists paid Rs22 billion as tax in five years but got Rs29 billion on account of subsidy. There will be no concessions to any mafia.”He said.
He further responded to queries on following Covid-19 SOPs, vaccination, petroleum prices, diplomatic issues, foreign investment, economic growth, financial assistance from Pakistan’s friends, rupee’s strength, industries & production, water shortage & sanitation, borders issues, Sindh package, urban forestation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Israeli atrocities against innocent Palestinians.
The prime minister will hold the next live telephonic interaction with the public after Eid.
